Featuring one of TV's favorite families, The Goldbergs always brings the laughs for fans — and that's partially thanks to the extended family.

Sam Lerner, who plays "JTP" member and Erica Goldberg's (Hayley Orrantia) boyfriend Geoff Schwartz easily steals the scene with his goofy-yet-lovable good guy.

TV Insider recently sat down with the actor to talk about Season 5 and beyond. Lerner opened up working with Kevin Smith (The FlashClerks) and Lea Thompson (Back to the FutureSwitched at Birth) and detailed those Dirty Dancing-theme episodes.
