Adam Goldberg

Played by Sean Giambrone

character

A proud geek bursting with energy… and utterly ignored in this family.  Nothing makes him happier than a family fight.  He’ll giddily grab his video camera, hit record, and start directing rather than try to help.  Arguing is the only way to really interact with your older siblings that will have nothing to do with you. Sometimes even a wedgie is welcome (and even enjoyed).  Adam embodies all that is geeky about the ‘80s and dreams of directing movies.  He loves the gems of the era like Tron, Star Wars, Transformers and Steven Spielberg.  However, Adam has started middle school and it’s been a rough transition.  Most of his friends are throwing out their Indiana Jones toys and trying to grab the closest pair of boobs, but Adam is still re-creating Raiders of the Lost Ark in his basement.

Sean Giambrone portrays younger son Adam on ABC's new comedy series, The Goldbergs, the 11-year-old version of the show's creator, Adam Goldberg. Giambrone is also a series regular on Cartoon Network's Clarence, a new animated series debuting this fall. He's the voice of Jeff, intellectual sidekick of the main character.

Giambrone began his acting career at the age of 9 and starred in various television commercials, including for McDonald's and Friendly's Restaurants. He gained particular attention in the nationwide campaign for Sea World, even making an appearance in a spoof on The Tonight Show, and also appeared as Afro Boy in the film I Heart Shakey.

Born in Michigan in 1999, Giambrone is a big fan of the Michigan Wolverines. His favorite subjects as he starts high school are art and history, and he also plays soccer and basketball. He loves films and enjoys seeing his favorite actors, Will Smith, Robert Downey Jr. and the late Heath Ledger.

Giambrone divides his time between Los Angeles and Chicago with his parents, Vonda and David, as well as older brother Luke.
