He continued his education up to enrolling in community college, but eventually decided to move away from his college studies to focus more on developing his acting career. This was when he adopted Gentile, which has connotations with his father’s background. One of his first roles was as a young Craig Ferguson in a segment of “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson”; this was the third iteration of the franchise, and aired from 2005 to 2014. It was previously aired under the hosts Tom Synder and Craig Kilborn. Ferguson was responsible for the show’s highest ratings since its inception, with an emphasis on comedy.

Continued Acting Work

Over the next few years, Gentile continued to take on more acting projects including “Bad News Bears” which is a sports comedy film starring Billy Bob Thornton and Greg Keinnear. It is a reboot of the 1976 sports films “The Bad News Bears” and received mixed reviews, also failing at the box office. He then appeared as a young version of Jack Black in “Nacho Libre” which is loosely based on the story of Fray Tormenta, a real-life Mexican Catholic priest who also had a career as a masked luchador to support the orphanage he was taking care of.

His next project would be 2007’s “Good Luck Chuck”, a romantic comedy film starring Jessica Alba. In the film, the women who meet titular character Chuck find their true love after having sex with him – the film was panned by critics however. This did not stop Gentile’s acting endeavors, as he then appeared in “Drillbit Taylor”, starring Owen Wilson as the titular character, which was an original idea by John Hughes. It was his last film as a writer before his death in 2009, and he used the pseudonym Edmond Dantes for the film. The film was a box office disappointment, and responses were mixed to negative.

The Goldbergs and Recent Projects

In 2009, Troy starred in the family comedy film “Hotel for Dogs”, a Nickelodeon film but is produced by DreamWorks Pictures, based on the 1971 novel of the same name. The film focuses on the story of two orphans who attempt to hide their dog at an abandoned hotel, leading them to also take in other dogs to save them from police officers or cold hearted animal pound workers.

In 2013, he was then cast for one of his best known roles in the comedy show “The Goldbergs”, which airs on ABC. It was created by Adam F. Goldberg and stars Troy alongside Wendi McLendon-Covey, Jeff Garlin, and Sean Giambrone. It is based on Goldberg’s family and childhood during the 1980s, and even has a childhood version of himself; the show has now been running for seven seasons. While working on the show, Troy has also had guest appearances in shows such as “The Middle”, a sitcom about a lower middle class family in Indiana, and a two episode role in “Schooled”, a direct spin-off of “The Goldbergs”, this time set in the 1990s.
