‘The Goldbergs’ Star Sam Lerner on Season 5 & Meeting the Real Geoff Schwartz (VIDEO)
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 Flash, Clerks) and Lea Thompson (Back to the Future, Switched at Birth) and detailed those Dirty Dancing-theme episodes.
The 25-year-old also talked about playing a real person — the series based on creator Adam F. Goldberg’s life — and meeting his real-life counterpart, Geoff Schwartz.
See what Lerner had to say in the video below and catch him on The Goldbergs when it returns on May 2.
