Drake Bell has not publicly announced his political affiliation. He is probably like most Americans and doesn't actually belong to any political party and just votes for the candidate he thinks is the best choice in each election.
Explaining how he became an actor, 2005: "I was five, and my dad kind of said, 'Hey, you wanna be an actor?' and I said, 'Sure,' that kind of thing, you know? I was kind of put into it by my dad but, you know, good. I really love it, and I still do it."
I love the instant gratification of playing live...the energy. And rock star parties are better than actor parties.
