Original Cast Of ER: How Much Are They Worth Now?
ER started out as just another medical drama, but ended up becoming an iconic series that broke world records for longest-running medical drama in American television history and the most Emmy nominated show with 124 nods and 23 wins won. It churned out so many actors over the course of 15 seasons, some of whom are now huge stars today (ahem, George Clooney)! ER first aired back in 1994 and ran all the way until 2004. It showcased the inner life of the emergency room in the fictional County General Hospital in Chicago, Illinois. ER laid the ground work for so many other amazing shows like Grey’s Anatomy, House and Scrubs and is still talked about today nearly 12 years later! Here’s a look back at how much the original cast of ER is worth now:
10. Anthony Edwards

He co-starred in the movies, Motherhood, Zodiac, The Forgotten and Thunderbirds, but some of his other notable appearances were in projects like Northern Exposure, Revenge of the Nerds and Top Gun. He was the executive producer behind a few television films, two of which were critically acclaimed.

He’s the proud owner of three Golden Globe Awards, two Academy Awards, two Primetime Emmy nominations and is basically offered a staring role in nearly ever project he’s in.

Laura Innes is an actress and director who is best recognized for her roles in ER as Dr. Kerry Weaver and Sophia on the NBC show, The Event (which only lasted for one season).

Stringfield has also done a few one episode appearances on shows like Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Law & Order, Third Watch and Touched by an Angel.

1. Noah Wyle
Estimated Net Worth: $18 million. Noah Wyle goes down in history as the longest standing actor on ER because he is the only one who stuck around for the entire 15 seasons, consecutively!
