Jeff Garlin, a former “Goldbergs” star, has bipolar disorder and says, “I’m doing the best I can.”
In a post on Instagram, Jeff Garlin disclosed that he suffers from bipolar disease, writing: “Bipolar is a motherfucker. It’s simply too much to handle at times. I’m exerting all of my effort. This is the first time I’ve talked about it openly.
On the same day as the season 10 premiere of “The Goldbergs,” in which his character Murray was killed off, Garlin released the message. During the ninth season, Garlin left the programme. Following an HR inquiry concerning his on-set behaviour, which the actor dismissed as “silliness,” the actor and Sony Pictures Television came to a “mutual agreement,” which ended the actor’s contentious career.
In the Season 10 premiere episode, which aired on Wednesday, Patton Oswalt’s narration of adult Adam says, “Just a few months ago, out of nowhere, we lost my dad. You have our undying affection, Dad. Always. And since we are the Goldbergs, we’ll figure out a way to carry on as a unit.
Co-showrunner Alex Barnow stated, “I spoke with Jeff and he is aware that he is not being replaced,” before to the start of Season 10. The response to that inquiry would be, “I don’t know if he knows what his fate is, but I’m guessing he knows.” He wouldn’t have any specific clarity on it since we haven’t spoken since the beginning of writing.
Although Garlin left “The Goldbergs” in the middle of Season 9, the actor continued to appear in the programme using off-camera conversation taken from previous episodes and unused takes, as well as previously shot photos. Garlin continued to get compensation for his services on the show at that time.
In a previous interview with Vanity Fair, the actor had addressed the accusations made against him, saying, “Well, to be honest with you, there is no narrative. Sony and I disagree on a matter of opinion.
“In my view, I have a technique regarding how I am humorous, in terms of the scenario and what I have to do,” he stated. They believe it creates an, quote, “unsafe” working environment. Mind you, I don’t understand how my foolishness creates a dangerous workplace. I’ve always been a considerate and kind person. Yes, I do make mistakes. However, I use comedy to make people feel better. Why would I ever want to hurt someone just to make someone laugh? Bullying, that. That is just not appropriate.
