Drake reunites with 'Degrassi' pals in Toronto

His days of roaming the halls of Degrassi may have ended years ago, but Drake proved this week that he hasn't forgotten his roots. The rapper joined former co-stars Lauren Collins, Adamo Ruggiero and Daniel Clark at the Toronto premiere of the new web series We Are Disorderly, posing for pictures and reminiscing about old times.

"I think these kids went to my high school," joked the 28-year-old "Best I Ever Had" singer, who posted a photo of the special reunion on Instagram. Daniel Clark, who played Sean on the hit Canadian teen drama, also took to social media to document the occasion, writing, "Always great seeing this guy!"

From 2001 to 2009, the then-child star (whose real name is Aubrey Drake Graham) played Jimmy Brooks, a star athlete who ended up in a wheelchair after being shot by a fellow student. He left the show after successfully launching his rap career, but he continues to carry his student card with pride.

Last year, when Drake appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, he revealed that the role of Jimmy, "was the first audition I went on." Since turning his attention to music, the talented star has only dabbled in acting, appearing in short films and playing himself in hilarious cameos, like the time he shared the screen with Will Ferrell in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.

Earlier this year, fans of the Degrassi franchise were devastated following an announcement that the current 14th season of the show would be its last. Not long after, their disappointment turned to joy when Netflix revealed that the show will be revived for a new chapter, Degrassi: Next Class, which will debut on the digital streaming service in 2016.
