Jimmy Fallon Net Worth 2014 – 2015: $36 Million
Jimmy Fallon is what some people would call a “One man band”, because he’s a guy with a lot of different skills, in other words, a multi-talented human being who’s been able to make a lot of money throughout his career thanks to a lot of hard work and dedication. Jimmy isn’t that old you know, he was born in September 19, 1974 in New York, which means that he’s only 39 years old, so there’s no doubt at all that a lot more money is coming his way in the following years.
James Thomas Fallon is best known for his great work as an all around artist, meaning that he’s a very gifted actor/comedian, musician, and tv host. What never ceases to amaze me is that Jimmy is actually a great singer, in fact, he’s an outstanding rapper, if you’ve ever seen the History of Rap sketch, which is one of Jimmy’s most popular and talked about sketches ever, then I’m sure that you know what I’m talking about. If you’ve never seen it, or don’t know anything about it, then let me break it down for you real quick. When Justin Timberlake was invited to SNL, both Fallon and J.T. decided to put up a show where they would sing together classic rap songs from the 80s, 90s, and a little bit of new school hip hop music as well. And, I’m not lying or exaggerating when I tell you that that night Jimmy showed the world that he could actually sing and rap by performing even better than Justin Timberlake at times throghout the show.
James got interested in acting, comedy, and Saturday Night Live when he was just a kid, he and his older sister Gloria would regularly perform popular “SNL” sketches to entertain their parents. That’s why Jimmy’s mom, who was his biggest fan by the way, would always encourage him to follow his dreams, in fact, she almost forced him to perform stand up comedy at a comedy club once, and he felt so good that he decided to continue peforming for the rest of his life. He soon moved to Los Angeles in order to pursue his dream. Once in L.A. James was able to quickly land an important role as one of the cast members of Saturday Night Live (SNL), right after that he became a celebrity almost overnight, and that’s also when he started making the real money.
Fallon has appeared and starred as well in a lot of funny movies such as “Factory Girl”, “Whip it”, “Taxi”, and “Fever Pitch”, he’s also recorded several singles and full albums such as “The Bathroom Wall” and “Blow Your Pants Off”. But even though some of Jimmy’s movies have had succes, the real or main source of his wealth is hosting, he had a salary of $5 million dollars per year for hosting his own show “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon”, and now he earns a whopping $11 million every year for hosting “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon”.
But, how much is this guy really worth? Well, according to several online media outlets and magazines James has an estimated net worth of $25 million, other sources claim that he’s worth somewhere around $16 million. However, after doing a lot of research and making our own calculations based on the most recent information about his career, salary and earnings, we have come to the conclusion that he might be a little bit richer than what most people think, or say. We believe that Jimmy has a total fortune of $36 million dollars approximately.
