Troy Gentile was born in Boca Raton, Florida, on October 27, 1993, and broke into acting shortly after he moved to Los Angeles. Clearly, fate and Hollywood had plans for Gentile. He booked his first job on his first audition on his second day of representation by landing the role of wheelchair-bound Matthew Hooper in Paramount Pictures' remake of The Bad News Bears with Billy Bob Thornton. Since his first big break in 2005, Gentile has demonstrated an innate comedic brilliance, perfectly capturing a young Jack Black twice: first in Paramount's Nacho Libre, then in the recent New Line release, Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny. Showcasing his uncanny ability to imagine and enliven the young spirit of well-known personalities, Gentile embodied a young Craig Ferguson with hilarious precision on The Late Late Show. Gentile has also guest starred on TV shows including the Disney Channel hit The Suite Life of Zach & Cody and, more recently, on HBO's tour de force, Entourage.
Following a celestial career trajectory at breakneck speed, he was also seen in Lionsgate's Good Luck Chuck with Dane Cook, MGM's I Could Never Be Your Woman with Michelle Pfeiffer and in Paramount's Drillbit Taylor as a lead opposite Owen Wilson.
