iCarly Star Dishes on Michelle Obama's Cameo
Set your DVRs, iCarly fans!
When First Lady Michelle Obama appears on the Nickelodeon series in January 2012, iCarly costar Noah Munck says viewers are in for a treat.
Appearing in an episode of the comedy to promote Joining Forces, an initiative aimed at increasing awareness and support for military families, Obama's stint on the series came as quite a shock to the show's teen cast.
"I just found out about it today [when creator] Dan Schneider told the whole cast and I'm just really excited," Munck, 15, told Us Weekly at Wednesday's Super 8 premiere in Los Angeles.
Also on Wednesday, Nickelodeon network president Cyma Zarghami revealed that Obama would film scenes with series star Miranda Cosgrove. The 18-year-old Cosgrove plays Carly Shay, the daughter of a colonel serving overseas in the military. When her pals break some rules and set up a web chat so Carly can wish her dad a happy birthday, "the First Lady discovers it and comes to have a chat with them in the most positive way possible," Zarghami said. The show's creator Schneider wrote the episode specifically with Obama in mind.
"I am stoked. It's going to be absolutely off the hook," Munck gushed to Us. "I haven't heard of a Nick show that had a presidential figure on it yet, so it was really, really startling and totally cool. The whole cast is really excited."
