Date of Birth : Oct 27th 1993
Born in Boca Raton, Florida and moved to Los Angeles as a teenager to pursue a lifelong dream of just being a normal kid. Clearly, fate and Hollywood had other plans as Troy booked his first job on his first audition on his second day of representation, playing wheelchair- bound Matthew Hooper in Paramount Pictures’ remake of “The Bad News Bears” with Billy Bob Thornton.
Since this first big break in 2005, Gentile has demonstrated an innate comedic brilliance. He perfectly captured the young Jack Black twice: first in Paramount’s “Nacho Libre” and in the New Line release “Tenacious D: The Pick of Destiny.” Showcasing his uncanny ability to imagine and enliven the young spirit of well-known personalities, he embodied a young Craig Ferguson with hilarious precision on “The Late Late Show.”
Gentile has also guest starred on the Disney Channel hit “The Suite Life of Zack & Cody.” Following a celestial career trajectory at breakneck speed, he was recently seen in Lionsgate’s “Good Luck Chuck” with Dane Cook and Jessica Alba and will be seen in DreamWorks’ “Hotel for Dogs” opposite Emma Roberts.
