JERRY TRAINOR (Quincy aka "Q")
Jerry Trainor stars as Quincy, a thirty-something bachelor who has dedicated his life to being the best cyber multi-player athlete, in Best Player, premiering Saturday, March 12 at 8:00 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon.

Trainor’s recurring role as Crazy Steve on Drake & Josh led to his first regular series gig when he was cast as Spencer, an off-centered aspiring artist and brother and guardian of his teenaged sister Carly on Nickelodeon’s mega-hit television series iCarly. Trainor’s portrayal of Spencer garnered the actor his first Teen Choice nomination for Choice TV Actor: Comedy in 2009 and a nomination for Big Kid Award at the 2010 Australia Kids’ Choice Awards, which Trainor also co-hosted.

“Spencer is a carpe diem guy to a fault. He’s fun-loving, eternally optimistic and eccentric,” says Trainor of the character whose wacky creations include a fan made of hammers and a Christmas tree adorned with plastic noses. He continues, “In many ways, Carly is the more mature sibling. I goof off a lot off-screen, but Spencer and I both know there’s a time and place to reel it in and be responsible.”

Trainor also stars in the new Nickelodeon animated comedy series T.U.F.F. Puppy as the voice of Dudley Puppy. Dudley is a gung-ho, dim-witted dog who is thrust into the role of “hero” when recruited by the super secret crime-fighting organization T.U.F.F. (Turbo Undercover Fighting Force). Quarter to date, T.U.F.F. Puppy ranks as the number-two animated series with kids 2-11 on all TV (behind only SpongeBob SquarePants), averaging 3.3 million total viewers during its Saturday morning premieres.

Born and raised in San Diego, far from the clamor of Hollywood, Trainor lived in the same childhood home until venturing to college. His father was a Navy commander of a fighter squadron and his mother was a calculus teacher at USD High School, the same high school Trainor attended. He credits both of his parents for his comedic bent and his ability to balance it with a serious side.

Growing up, the actor excelled in math and considered becoming an architect but he opted to build a career in comedy instead. Trainor attended UC Santa Barbara for the quintessential college experience, combining academics and partying on the beach. He graduated from UCSB with a BFA in acting – but not before a Hollywood agent caught his one-man comedy show at college and urged him to audition in Los Angeles.

After moving to Los Angeles, Trainor auditioned opposite a UCSB classmate and landed a three-episode arc on MTV’s Undressed, directed by another UCSB alumnus. “Even with dramatic roles, I like to teeter on the edge of laughter, and my characters are always quirky,” says Trainor. He appeared in the feature film Donnie Darko starring Jake Gyllenhaal and went on to guest-star in episodes of Malcolm in the Middle, ER and Angel. He also played a recurring character as an audio-visual geek in Crossing Jordan before winning the career catalyst role of erratic usher Crazy Steve in Drake & Josh. All the while, he kept his day jobs at Starbucks, the Geffen Theater box office and Center Theater Group phone room.

Appropriately the Best Player co-star is a self-described “internet addict” who creates short web comedy films with his friends. He often plays video games and built his own gaming computer. Music is another pastime for the performer who gravitates to indie bands and classic ‘80s rock and hopes to one day learn to play drums. His additional off-hours are spent reading graphic novels, mysteries and thrillers.
