The successful series has been on the air for seven years and was the stepping stone for Gentile to become a recognized actor in Hollywood. In 2015, Gentile revealed what he believes to be the reason for the success of “The Goldbergs”: ‘We love each other, and that’s the absolute truth. I think that’s why the show is so good.’

Right now being an actor is on my plate, but I went to community college before I got “The Goldbergs.” Suddenly life is a journey. So now I’m like, okay, I guess this is my job.”

He was ecstatic when he was first asked for an autograph by a fan: “He asked for an autograph. That’s quite unusual, normally people would ask for a selfie.

He couldn’t hold his phone upright for the photo. – that was weird, but it was also great.
