Cast Of Seinfeld: How Much Are They Worth Now?
Seinfeld was one of the most successful and popular sitcoms of the ’90s. The NBC comedy was created by Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld, with the hilariously witty concept of Seinfeld starring as a fictionalized character of himself. The series ran for nine seasons and was well received by critics, won numerous awards, and yada, yada, yada, claimed TV Guide’s title as the “greatest television program of all time.” It’s been almost 20 years since the series ended, and it’s interesting to how far these actors have some since their time on Seinfeld. Check out this list to find out how much the cast is worth now:
6. Wayne Knight
Estimated Net Worth: $8 million. Wayne Knight began his acting career on Broadway and landed his first film role in the late ’70s. His career quickly escalated with more high-profile films like Dirty Dancing, Dead Again, JFK, Basic Instinct, Jurassic Park and To Die For. After conquering the film industry, he moved onto television and was cast in a few small shows before he landed one of the biggest roles in his career as Newman on Seinfeld. His career soon took off and he went on to appear in numerous other shows like Third Rock from the Sun, That ’70s Show, CSI: NY, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Nip/Tuck, Bones, The Exes and Hot in Cleveland. He has lent his voice to a huge number of projects like Toonsylvania, Hercules, Toy Story 2, Buzz Lightyear of Star Command, Kung Fu Panda, and The Penguins of Madagascar — just to name a few! Wayne Knight has been able to maintain a fruitful career, both in front of the camera and behind it voicing the characters of our favorite films and television series, all of this has left him with an estimated net worth of $8 million.
5. Michael Richards
Estimated Net Worth: $45 million. This American actor and comedian is widely recognized for his role as Jerry’s quirky neighbor, Cosmo Kramer on Seinfeld. His acting career didn’t begin until after serving two years in the army. In 1979 he got his first big break on a Billy Crystal cable TV special and became a series regular on ABC’s Fridays. Before starring in Seinfeld, he appeared in So I Married an Axe Murderer, Airheads, Young Doctors in Love, Problem Child, Coneheads, UHF and Trail and Error. In 1989 he began his role on Seinfeld and won more Emmy’s than any other cast member on the show. After the show finished, he starred in his own sitcom, The Michael Richards Show, but that was short lived and didn’t even last a full season. He went on to perform stand-up comedy, but his career fell apart when a video went viral of him voicing expletive racial slurs at an audience member. He was forced into retirement and has popped up for one or two jobs since, but nothing major. Despite his career fallout, Richards is still worth an impressive $45 million!
