Oppenheimer viewers notice Josh Peck pulling his iconic 'Megan' face from Drake & Josh

Fans of the hit Nickelodeon sitcom noticed a very familiar expression courtesy of Josh Peck.

Josh Peck's facial expressions in Oppenheimer has gone viral because it's reminding fans of his iconic 'Megan face' from Drake & Josh.

The former Disney star, 36, rose to fame starring in the hit teen sitcom Drake & Josh from 2004 to 2007.

One of the long-running jokes in the Nickelodeon sitcom revolved around the cheeky character named Megan (played by iCarly star Miranda Cosgrove) who was always pulling pranks on her brothers.

But Megan also acted innocently in front of her mother and step-father, making them believe she's completely sweet and they don't believe Drake or Josh when they tell their parents about her scheming ways, leading to Josh's hilarious scowl and "Megan!" outburst every time she does a practical joke.

Josh's expression became a meme over the years and eagle-eyed cinemagoers who watched Oppenheimer at the weekend, in which Peck stars as Kenneth Bainbridge, has gone viral once again.

In one scene featured in Christopher Nolan's acclaimed new film, Peck does an expression which has reminded Nickelodeon fans of his 'Megan Face'.

A Twitter user shared the meme on the app and tweeted: “At one point in Oppenheimer josh peck makes this exact face and it almost took me out of the movie.”

The tweet has received 62,000 likes and over 1.4M views, so clearly a lot of people had the exact same thought.

“THATS why this shot was so distracting to me,” a Twitter user replied.

Another spectator penned: “Thing is i know exactly what scene it was.”

One viewer replied and said the theatre where they watched Oppenheimer froze at the exact point where Peck does the ‘Megan face’.

“Our screen stopped working at that exact moment so we were stuck looking at that face for 10 minutes before they fixed it.”

Another warned they’d be disappointed if they don’t see the ‘Megan face’ in Oppenheimer as promised.

“I’m watching this tmrw and if this isn’t true I’m gonna be so mad,” they declared.

Nolan’s latest movie hit cinemas on 'Barbenheimer' day last week on Friday (21 July), with film fans flocking to see it on the big screen along with Greta Gerwig's Barbie.

Oppenheimer follows the story of the American scientist J. Robert Oppenheimer, played by Cillian Murphy, and his role in developing the atomic bomb which was used in World War II.

This earned him the title of the ‘father of the atomic bomb’.

With a staggering run time of three hours, the movie also stars Emily Blunt, Robert Downey Jr., Florence Pugh and Matt Damon.
