Summary List Placement
Caitlin Hale and Angelo Massagli, who played Marta and Frankie, in 2003’s “School of Rock,” are now a real-life couple 18 years after starring in the Jack Black comedy together.
@marfymae discovered the two were dating by scrolling through their Instagram pages, which shows they have been dating for at least three years. However, they were also pictured together in a 2015 post on Massagli’s Instagram when they reunited with other “School of Rock” stars at a preview of Broadway’s “School of Rock.” They’ve reunited with their former costars several times since.
In Hale’s most recent Instagram post, she thanked Massagli for helping her through the recovery period following her recent endometriosis excision surgery.
“It’s been 4 weeks since my second laparoscopic endometriosis excision surgery. I can’t thank Dr. Seckin, Dr. Goldstein, and the @seckinmd team enough for their attentive care and thoughtfulness throughout the entire process,” she wrote.
“And, of course, couldn’t have done it without @angelo_massagli waiting on me hand and foot during my two weeks of bed rest!”
Fans are pretty excited about the revelation, with one fan of the movie writing: “found out Marta and Frankie from ‘School of Rock’ are dating irl now and I have not been able to think of anything else since.”

Another wrote: “My day all of a sudden got 1000% better finding out Frankie and Marta are dating IRL.”
The fan even suggested that “Jack Black should officiate their wedding.”

Both Hale and Massagli have since moved on from acting. According to Hale’s Instagram bio, she is now an OB-GYN ultrasound technologist, while Massagli’s bio says that he graduated from the University of Miami School of Law in 2019.
Massagli hasn’t acted professionally since 2009, when he appeared as a bully in the TV show “Cupid.” Massagli has six IMDB credits to his name, with his most famous roles other than “School of Rock” being Wallace in “Stuart Little 2” and Bobby Baccalieri Jr. in “The Sopranos.”
Meanwhile, Hale has three IMDB acting credits to her name so far, although she does have two upcoming projects in the works. She is due to play Sydney in the upcoming animated TV series “Max & Wrigley,” and will play Kathy in the announced horror movie “Grimmerson Manor.”
Hale and Massagli’s “School of Rock” costar Rivkah Reyes, who played Katie, said earlier this year in March that their role in the Jack Black movie led to them being bullied and becoming a “raging addict.”
“Especially after production wrapped, when I first came back to school, people were really nice or really mean,” Reyes, who goes by the gender pronouns they/them, said. “There was no middle ground. I was literally followed around the school with people chanting ‘School of Rock.'”
