HOLLYWOOD, Calif., March 30, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Noah Munck, best known for his gregarious role as the shirt-shedding "Gibby" on the award-winning Nickelodeon series "iCarly," will serve as a pre-show host alongside Victorious'Daniella Monet on the orange carpet at Nickelodeon's 2011 Kids' Choice Awards this weekend. Munck, a 2011 KCA nominee in two categories, is up for "Funniest TV Sidekick," a new KCA category and the "iCarly" cast also received a nomination for "Favorite TV Show".  The Kids' Choice Awards airs Saturday at 8/7c on Nickelodeon.  Online voting is open through Friday April 1, 2011 at Nick.com.

"Training for unscripted live TV work is insane.  I'm loving this! It'll be challenging to stay cool and focused when Will Smith, Jack Black or Johnny Depp walk up to me for an interview!" shares Munck about his high-profile job at the KCA's this weekend. "I'm the luckiest kid in the world.  It's unreal! Love my job!"

Munck has been appearing on "iCarly" since the shows start in 2007, at the young age of 10.  The fan base for Gibby sparked with his first appearance on "iCarly" and his amassing cult following earned him the coveted spot as a series regular in 2010.  Munck's popularity continues to soar and was punctuated last season when "iCarly" creator Dan Schneider introduced the fans to Gibby's adorable little brother, Guppy, played by Noah's real life little brother Ethan Munck, 8.  In constant communication with fans, via social media, #Gibby and #Guppy were the only cast members who trended on Twitter during "iCarly's" season 3 movie special iPsycho.  

In June 2011 Munck returns to the big screen opposite Cameron Diaz, Justin Timberlake and Jason Segel in the adult comedy "Bad Teacher" for Columbia Pictures.  In the film's trailer, Noah is mercilessly beaned in the face with a basketball by co-star Diaz.

"Cameron had to hit me in the face with the ball about 10 times so we could get the scene right," explains Noah Munck of his on-set work on "Bad Teacher" opposite Cameron Diaz.  "We should have done a few more takes because Cameron felt so bad she ran over and hugged me after each take.  It was nice.  She's awesome!"

Munck's first feature film, "The Rainbow Tribe,"was released on DVD February 2011; an advanced sale copy of which is available exclusively online.  In this role opposite David James Elliot (JAG) Munck's dramatic acting chops are honed and impactful as a foul-mouthed thug with anger issues at a summer camp for troubled youths.  Munck's filmography also includes roles in Fox 2000's "All About Steve" and New Line Cinema's "Four Christmases."

Munck is back as entrepreneurial adolescent Bobby Sinclair, Neighborhood Lawn Kid, in TruGreen 's new national TV commercials to launch its specialized tree and shrub service and customized care. Noah is represented by Pamela Fisher at Buchwald Talent Group (323) 852-9555 and Jen Merlino at Untitled Entertainment (310) 601-2103.
