Cast Of Chicago Hope: How Much Are They Worth Now?
Chicago Hope was one of the best medical dramas on television before Grey’s Anatomy swept the scene. At the time, the CBS show was competing with ER, and although it didn’t last as long, it still ran for six seasons from 1994 to 2000, which isn’t too shabby in the competitive world of television. Chicago Hope followed the lives of the doctors and nurses working in the fictional private charity hospital operating out of Chicago, Illinois, and received critical acclaim. It’s been a surprising 16 years since it last aired and we miss it terribly! Here’s a look back to see how much the main cast is worth now:
10. Thomas Gibson
Estimated Net Worth: $18 million. His main television roles were on Chicago Hope, Dharma & Greg and, most recently, the lead role in Criminal Minds. In addition to these, he’s been in several television films and done one episode appearances on shows like Two and a Half Men, Hot in Cleveland, Lincoln, As the World Turns and Guiding Light. Gibson has directed several episodes of Criminal Minds and two episodes of Dharma & Greg. In the film industry, he’s not as prominent, but he’s held co-starring roles in films like Psycho Beach Party, Barcelona, Sleep with Me and The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas. Thomas Gibson is currently worth an estimated $18 million.
9. Mandy Patinkin
Estimated Net Worth: $9 million. Today he’s best recognized for his role as Saul Berenson on the series Homeland, but he’s also held notable roles on Criminal Minds, Dead Like Me and Chicago Hope. He’s received numerous nominations for his roles on Homeland and Chicago Hope and even won a Primetime Emmy Award in ’95 for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series. When it comes to film he’s best credited for his role in The Princess Bride, but he’s also got credits in Wish I Was Here, Alien Nation, Dick Tracy, and his portrayal of Huxley in The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland. In addition to acting, Patinkin also does a lot of work as a interpreter of musical work and his work in musical theater. He’s currently worth an estimated $9 million!
8. Mark Harmon
Estimated Net Worth: $90 million. Mark Harmon has an incredibly long and diverse career as an actor and even now as an executive producer. His first notable role on television was in the early ’80s when he was cast in a role on Flamingo Road, but his first main casting wasn’t until 1995 in Charlie Grace. He’s also held notable roles in shows like Chicago Hope and NCIS, a role he still currently holds. Harmon is an executive producer for NCIS and NCIS: New Orleans. When it comes to films, his major credits include Justice League: Crisis on Two Earth, Summer School, Chasing Liberty, Weather Girl, Freaky Friday and Wyatt Earp. In addition to these roles, he’s done numerous one episode appearances and television films leaving him with a gigantic net worth estimated to be around $90 million!
7. Rocky Carroll
Estimated Net Worth: Unknown. Roscoe Carroll, better known as ‘Rocky,’ is best known for his roles as Joey Emerson on the FOX comedy Roc and as Dr. Keith Wilkes on Chicago Hope. He also played the character of Leon Vance in NCIS, NCIS: New Orleans and NCIS: Los Angeles. Carroll is one of those actors who’s busy working, but he doesn’t have any major jobs under his belt. He’s held recurring roles on series like The Game, Invasion, The Agency, Welcome to New York and lent his voice to the show Gargoyles. His net worth is largely unknown, probably because he hasn’t taken on any major roles, but we’d guess he’s probably worth around $1 million.
6. Christine Lahti
Estimated Net Worth: $2 million. This critically acclaimed actress has many accomplishments to her name. Some of her best film roles were in Swing Shift, which earned her an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress, …And Justice for All, Housekeeping, Running on Empty and Leaving Normal. Her biggest roles on television were in Chicago Hope as Dr. Kathryn Austin and Jack & Bobby — both roles earned her critical acclaim, as well as a Golden Globe win and Primetime Emmy Award. But she’s also held notable recurring roles on shows like Law and Order: SVU, Hawaii Five-O and The Blacklist. Lahti’s done many television movies (some of which earned her more critical acclaim) and she’s been in several theater productions! This woman does it all! Today, she’s worth an estimated $2 million.
5. Jayne Brook
Estimated Net Worth: Unknown. Jayne Brook starred on Chicago Hope for the first five seasons as Dr. Diane Grad. She hasn’t been able to land a main casting since, but she’s done one episode appearances on several shows like Castle, Revenge, NCIS, Jack & Bobby, Grey’s Anatomy and CSI: Miami. She’s also held short roles on The District, John Doe, Boston Legal and Private Practice. Her film career is lacking with no roles since 2000 and none that are notable. It’s not surprising her net worth is unknown considering she hasn’t held any starring or lead roles and her last steady job was on Chicago Hope 16 years ago. We’d guess she’s worth around $300,000.
4. Vondie Curtis-Hall
Estimated Net Worth: $2 million. He’s an actor, screenwriter and a film and television director! When it comes to his on-screen roles, he’s best recognized as Dr. Dennis Hancock on Chicago Hope, but he’s also played Ben Urich in the Netflix series, Daredevil. He’s held recurring roles on ER and Soul Food, I’ll Fly Away. He’s more prominent in film with appearances in projects like Sugar Hill, Coming to America, Crooklyn, Drop Squad, Freedom Song, and Passion Fish — just to name a few. He directed the films Gridlock’d, Glitter, Redemption: The Stan Tookie Williams Story, Waist Deep and Abducted: The Carlina White Story. He’s only worth an estimated $2 million, most likely because he hasn’t had many starring or leading roles, but he’s still doing quite well for himself!
3. Peter Berg
Estimated Net Worth: $30 million. Peter Berg is best recognized for his work behind the camera, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have a lot of on-screen credits too! He’s the director behind some pretty awesome films like Very Bad Things, The Rundown, Friday Night Lights, The Kingdom, Battleship, Hancock, Lone Survivor, Patriots Day and Deepwater Horizon. He developed the widely popular show Friday Night Lights, which is derived from the film, and is the producer behind many projects like Wonderland, The Leftovers, Prime Suspect, and Hell or High Water. Berg’s best known on-screen credit is in the television series Chicago Hope as Dr. Billy Kronk. Peter Berg has one of the highest net worth’s on this list and we’re not surprised! He’s worth around $30 million.
2. Hector Elizondo
Estimated Net Worth: $3 million. Hector Elizondo is a very well recognized face in Hollywood as he’s been in numerous notable films over the course of his career. Many of his film roles aren’t starring or leading, but he’s been in some pretty big blockbuster hits like Runaway Bride, Princess Diaries, Taking Care of Business, The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement, Pretty Woman and Beverly Hills Cop III. In the span of his career he’s been in over 80 films and currently holds a main role on the show, Last Man Standing. His most notable TV roles were on shows like Chicago Hope, Century City, Grey’s Anatomy and Monk. We’re pretty surprised he’s only worth $3 million, so we suspect it’s much greater than that considering how long he’s been around and his involvement in some pretty profitable movies.
1. Adam Arkin
Estimated Net Worth: $10 million. He’s a critically acclaimed actor who’s been nominated for a Tony Award, three Emmys (one of which he won) and three SAG Awards. Arkin’s only main role on television was on the medical drama, Chicago Hope, but he also did notable appearances on shows like The West Wing, Baby Bob, 8 Simple Rules, Life, Sons of Anarchy, State of Affairs, How To Get Away With Murder, Northern Exposure and A Year in the Life. When it comes to films, Arkin has been in a lot of television films, but also held starring roles in smaller films like Full Moon High, Chu Chu and the Philly Flash, With Friends Like These… and Hanging Up. Adam Arkin is currently worth an estimated $10 million!
