David Archuleta Makes Acting Debut

Tweenyboppers, rejoice! Our favorite pint-sized idol David Archuleta is adding 'actor' to his resume by appearing on Nickelodeon's iCarly.

The American Idol alum will play himself in an an upcoming episode, which begins shooting on Thursday, Nickelodeon confirms. iCarly centers around a high school student, played by Miranda Cosgrove, who runs a video blog with her friends.

In the episode titled "iRocked the Vote," Chuleta plays a contestant on an Idol-style show called America Sings. He gets a huge spike in votes after winning support in an iCarly webcast.

So, the role isn't exactly a stretch for Chuleta, but anything that keeps him in demand is fine by us. It's not like Jennifer Hudson's role in Dream Girls was groundbreaking, and she managed to win an Oscar for that. Who knows, maybe there's an Emmy in David's future? Well, we won't hold our breath...
