Can you believe it’s been half a decade since the final season Dan Schneider’s hit show “iCarly” aired? The show and its amazing cast have definitely stayed with us after all this time. Seriously though — who can forget Carly, Sam, Freddie and the rest of the gang? Not us; not them; not ever!
What you may have forgotten, though, are the totally awesome celebrity appearances on “iCarly.” Nickelodeon has always been a talent magnet, but this roster is really something else.
For an extra-fun throwback, take a look at these 5 huge stars and their guest appearances on “iCarly!”
1. Emma Stone
The Golden Globe and Oscar winning “La La Land” star and Oscar played a (crazy!) fangirl named “Heather” on the episode “iFind Spencer Friends.” In this scene, she shakes the crew down for selfies after spotting them at a restaurant.
Five years and plenty of great movies later, we’re sure Emma has millions of over-the-moon fans of her own!
2. Jack Black
The “School of Rock” legend — who costarred with Miranda Cosgrove way back when — played Spencer’s “World of Warlords” rival in the episode “iStart a Fan War.” A worthy foe indeed!
3. Jane Lynch
Ever wonder what actress could possibly live up to Sam’s descriptions of her rough-and-tough mama? The one and only Jane Lynch! Sure, the two fought almost the entire episode. But Jane is at her best when she’s feisty.
4. Michelle Obama
The former first lady made an appearance as herself on “iCarly” in the episode “iMeet the First Lady!” The gang met her after hacking into the US military in an effort to reach Carly’s father on his birthday. Pretty cool, sure, but please don’t try this at home!
5. Jim Parsons
Lastly, fans were thrilled when Jim Parsons from “The Big Bang Theory” showed up in the episode “iLost My Mind” as a patient at a mental hospital/potential time traveler. If aliens capture Ryan Seacrest in the year 2029, don’t forget this episode!
