Mad Men became an American television phenomenon. A period piece so vintage it reignited the “cool” from the era. The clothing men wear, from suits to footwear, is completely inspired by the mid-century modern motif that was so basic it became classic. Who knew a show about ad executives in New York city could become so iconic? People obsessed over the show, its stars and its story lines. Now, the cast has moved on successfully, and we want to know: how much are they worth now?
8. Aaron Staton
Estimated Net Worth: $4 million. He was known as Ken Cosgrove on Mad Men, and he successfully leaped from every season of Mad Men right into the third season of Ray Donovan, starring Liev Schreiber. Aaron is an example of an actor who simply needed to get his foot in the door to really start making things happen. His first major credit came in 2005, and within two years, he locked in a lead role on a show that changed popular culture. Everyone can thank Mad Men for the slim suits, skinny ties and resurgence of mid-modern decor. And Aaron is thanking his lucky stars–and his own hard work–for being a part of madness, leading to a lucrative bankroll. Estimated at $4 million, we gotta think it’s only growing!BDG / Rex Features
