Miranda Cosgrove on Jack Black, hot messes and ‘iCarly’

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith

HollywoodNews.com: Miranda Cosgrove plays a hot mess of a young star in the Nov. 16 episode of “The Good Wife,” a character who “ends up getting into a car accident one night when she’s drunk and can’t remember what happened,” reports the 17-year-old real-life star of Nickelodeon’s “iCarly.” “She thinks it’s just going to be a DUI, but it ends up being attempted murder.”

Cosgrove answers carefully when asked whether the problem girl was modeled after anyone we know. “I didn’t play her thinking of any one person,” she says. “Of course I’ve heard stories and stuff. I really just read the script.”

Cosgrove’s foray into network drama comes the day before her Nov. 17 special double episode of “iCarly” — “iStart A Fan War” – in which her “School of Rock” castmate, Jack Black, comes aboard as guest star. In the Comic Con-inspired episode, Cosgrove’s series brother, Jerry Trainor, and Black’s character are arch rival gamers.

“Everybody was really excited to get to work with him,” she says. “Jerry Trainor reminds me of Jack Black — they’re both so funny — and it was really cool to see them work together. I loved seeing them sing a song in the episode. They both dress up as their favorite characters in this World of Warlords game.”
