Last week, the weirdest iCarly fan theory ever was “confirmed” by Nathan Kress himself. He responded to the theory brought forth by Twitter user @lilgrlhj that his character, Freddie Benson, was the product of his insane helicopter mom’s love affair with Barry B. Benson (Jerry Seinfeld) from Bee Movie. It was all “confirmed” in good fun, and now Kress is milking this random free publicity for all it’s worth, suggesting he play Jerry Seinfeld’s son in a potential Bee Movie 2. (Hey, you gotta take what you can get, Kressie! You go girl!)>
What about “Bee Movie 2”?
What’s going on with that?

Nathan Kress jokingly (?) responded to a tweet in which Jerry Seinfeld asked fans if they’d be down for a Bee Movie sequel. Kress said he would support the project, but only if he was cast as his Bee son using the hashtag #BensonandBenson. The tweet racked up over 1,200 likes, but in Hollywood currency that’s probably not enough to get Freddie reunited with his dad. But hey, if anything good can come out of this ridiculous fan theory that a fictional human character from a kid’s show is the son of a fictional animated insect from a kid’s movie, it’s Nathan Kress getting a job out of it. (Seriously why didn’t HE get his own spin-off show, Nickelodeon? That show would have been a lot funnier than the atrocity that was Sam & Cat.)
Would you watch a Bee Movie 2 with Nathan Kress starring Freddie Benson as a Bee who is also Jerry Seinfeld’s son? Let us know on Twitter @Smosh!
