Who Is Hollywood’s Richest Actor?

The answer will surprise you. You would think it’s a big movie star. Tom Cruise or Kevin Costner, or even Seth Rogen. Nope. Maybe a powerful female actress. Scarlet Jo or J-Lo or even Jennifer Lawrence. How about Seth McFarlane or a voice talent like Harry Shearer. Not close.

It’s Jerry Seinfield. Hello, Jerry! Jerry makes a ton of money off Seinfeld reruns. This story from the Huffington Post explains.

“According to Wealth-X, a Singapore-based company that researches the ultra-rich, Jerry Seinfeld raked in at least $400 million last year thanks to syndication deals for “Seinfeld.” (Last year, the Independent reported reruns of the show were estimated to have generated some $3 billion since the sitcom went off the air). That, together with more recent projects like 2007′s “The Bee Movie,” have kept the 60-year-old comedian’s coffers amply stocked, Wealth-X said in a media release this week. So stocked, in fact, that the company has dubbed him the richest actor in Hollywood — and possibly the world.

“With an estimated net worth of US$820 million… Jerry Seinfeld is laughing all the way to the bank,” Wealth-X wrote in the release.”

Wow. Jerry is 60??? That surprised me more than all the money stuff. 11:30 on WXSP. Watch and help Jerry put his kids through school. :)
