Source: Gold Circle Films

2002’s My Big Fat Greek Wedding surprised absolutely everyone with the success it achieved. Boasting a talented, hilarious and diverse cast and a unique twist on the romantic comedy, the film quickly became the highest-grossing romantic comedy of all time thanks to the over $241 million it raked in at North American box offices while never hitting number one at the box office. It also surprised many by releasing a sequel not a few years later but rather 14, yet still managed to pull in all of the first film’s original stars. With 16 years since the film reached records, now is a great time to check out how much the cast is worth now!

9. Joey Fatone

Estimated Net Worth: $14 Million. There isn’t much that Joey Fatone can’t do, and thanks to that the former boy bander is sitting on an impressive estimated net worth of $14 million. He is of course best known for being one of the members of the super successful ’90s and 2000’s boy band NSYNC, but he was able to shake that persona with ventures on both television and films. He appeared in the 2001 romantic comedy On the Line alongside former bandmate Lance Bass, and the next year landed a small role as Angelo in My Big Fat Greek Wedding. He also made waves on season four of Dancing With the Stars where his second place finish in a way revamped his career and landed him hosting duties for shows like Celebrity Circus and Singing Bee. He reprised his role of Angelo in My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2.

8. Ian Gomez

Estimated Net Worth: $800 Thousand. Ian Gomez is a very recognizable face having appeared in small roles in many different television series and films. He is perhaps best known for his roles in the ’90s series, Norm and Felicity, while he also starred in the more recent series Cougar Town from 2009-2015. His most well known movie role is in My Big Fat Greek Wedding as Mike, Ian’s (John Corbett) best man, a role which he is also reprising in My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2. Although he has had several roles, his lack of leading ones leaves Gomez with an estimated net worth of $800 thousand; however, he is also married to My Big Fat Greek Wedding star Nia Vardalos who has quite the impressive net worth of her own to come later in the list.

5. Andrea Martin

Estimated Net Worth: $1 Million. Andrea Martin is a very well known actress and comedian in the entertainment industry who starred in My Big Fat Greek Wedding as the hilarious Aunt Voula. She became a star almost immediately thanks to her role in 1971’s Foxy Lady, after which she landed a spot as a cast member on SCTV from 1976-1981. Given the fact she has 138 acting credits to her name it is hard to document all of her successes; however, it is important to note that, while she is recognizable from her many acting roles, she has also done very well with voice acting. She has lent her voice to series such as Hercules, Rugrats, Kim Possible and Sesame Street as well as the popular 1997 animated classic film Anastasia. Since she has had such an impressive career it is surprising she is not worth more than her estimated $1 million!
