The 13-year-old actor is a recurring star on ABC’s The Goldbergs, which airs TONIGHT, April 8 @ 8:30PM!
“My first time I filmed The Goldbergs for the episode, ‘The Kremps,’ I got a big surprise because the real Chad Kremp was on set and introduced himself to me – very cool!” Jacob told JJJ.
He added, “Working with Sean Giambrone is so much fun and is literally the nicest guy you could ever meet!”
