Cast Of Cougar Town: How Much Are They Worth Now?
Cougar Town is a hilarious sitcom that ran for six seasons on ABC telling the story of a recently divorced woman who is forced to start over in her forties. The show’s funny bone is all the pitfalls and challenges she faces entering the dating scene after being married for so long and all her wine loving friends, ex-husband and teenage son who come together to form one big dysfunctional, caring extended family. Courteney Cox takes the lead role in this series and it had incredible success running from 2009 till 2015 with tons of great recurring characters and guest appearances. The show was nominated for many People’s Choice Awards, a Golden Globe and won Glamour Magazine Women of the Year Award, a Golden Derby and a Critics Choice Television award! It’s only been a year since the show ended, but we already miss it terribly. Here’s a look at how much the main cast of the show is worth now:
7. Christa Miller
Estimated Net Worth: $20 million. Christa got a good financial start when she scored huge modeling deals as a child with Wonder Bread and Ivy Soap. She switched over to acting with a recurring role on the series Kate & Allie. She is most widely recognized for her roles as Kate O’Brien on The Drew Carey Show, Jordan Sullivan on Scrubs and of course, Ellie Torres on Cougar Town. She doesn’t have much of a film career, but rather focused more on television with appearances on shows like Northern Exposure, Seinfeld, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Party of Five, CSI: Miami and Undateable. In addition to her regular roles on The Drew Carey Show, Scrubs and Cougar Town, Miller also voiced the character of Cleopatra for the animated series, Clone High. Her resume is still small, but that doesn’t matter because she’s worth an estimated $20 million!
6. Ian Gomez
Estimated Net Worth: $40 million. Ian Gomez is known for doing comedic roles in Cougar Town and Jake in Progress. Gomez has appeared in many movies, but his most notable roles were starring spots in Get a Clue, The Last Shot and My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2. Similar to his film credits, Ian’s got a long list of television appearances in a slew of series. Starting with his leading roles in The Drew Carey Show, Felicity, The Norm Show, Jake in Progress, Rita Rocks and Cougar Town. In addition to these regular castings, he’s also had notable roles in Missing Persons, Murphy Brown, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and one episode appearances on Melrose Place, NYPD Blue, 7th Heaven, According to Jim, Royal Pains, Grey’s Anatomy, The Middle and Drop Dead Diva. Gomez’s resume is stacked and he’s married to fellow actress, Nia Vardalos, which also contributes to his net worth, so it’s no wonder he’s sitting on a whopping $40 million!
5. Josh Hopkins
Estimated Net Worth: Unknown. Josh Hopkin’s net worth is largely unknown which is really surprising because he’s been involved in a lot of projects as both an actor and singer. His only starring role in a film was Pretty Ugly People, but he’s appeared in many other big projects like The Perfect Storm, G.I. Jane, and Get on Up. Hopkins definitely focuses more on television with main cast roles in Ally McBeal, New York Undercover, Swingtown, Cougartown and his current position on Quantico. He held a recurring role on Vanished and had notable appearances on CSI: Miami, Private Practice, Hot in Cleveland, Jack & Jill, Bones, Friends, and North Shore, to name a few. In addition to acting, he’s recorded several singles like “Feigning Interest” which garnered a lot of controversial interest. Even though his net worth is unknown, his leading roles on popular shows probably puts him somewhere around $5 million.

He’s also had leading roles in the popular sitcoms, Aliens in America and Cougar Town.

He’s appeared in popular series like Judging Amy, Scandal, Mad Men, Ghost Whisperer, Any Day Now, ER, Salem’s Lot and held a recurring role in Heroes.
