Michael J. Fox Net Worth 2014 – 2015: $100 Million
I’ve been watching Michael Andrew Fox perform all my life, he was and still is one of the best actors in the world, his ability to perform at such a high level in his latest show “The Michael J. Fox Show”, while struggling with Parkinson’s disease at the same time, is a great example of this man’s talent and will power. His most recent work is not just an example of his outstanding acting capabilities and determination, it’s also a lesson for humanity, and an inspirational story for those who are troubled with terrible diseases such as this one.
Michel J. Fox is one of the most versatile actors of all-time, he was a great comedian, and throughout the earlier stages of his acting career comedy was all he did. Michael was also very capable of pulling off dramatic roles, one great example would be his role as “Jamie Conway” in the 80’s film “Bright Lights, Big City”, where he played a young man addicted to cocaine who was trapped in the New York nightlife during the 1980s.
I loved his comedy films and tv shows, when I was just a kid I remember watching him everyday on “Family Ties”, where he played Alex P. Keaton, one of the first roles in TV history that actually made Nerds looks cool. If you ever saw the show, then you would not be able to disagree with me at this moment, because you have to admit that Alex P. Keaton was a total nerd, but he was fun, witty, and he always outsmarted everyone, sometimes even his own father, the great and wise “Steven Keaton”. That show was so good, that I really wish I could see some reruns right now.
During the 80s Michael J. Fox also starred in Steven Spielberg’s feature “science fiction, action-comedy” film “Back to the Future” as “Marty McFly”, a rebelious teenager who loves skateboarding and has a very close relationship with a mad scientist known as “Doc Emmet Brown” who invents a time traveling machine.
Back to the Future was so successful that they had to make two more sequels, “Back to the Future Part II” and “Back to the Future Part III”, all of them were great, but my favorite ones were without any doubt 1 and 2. But now that I think about it, I believe that Back to the Future 2 was the most fun to watch. You have to understand, I was only 8 years old when that movie was released, so the idea of such an advanced future where cars could fly and skateboards could float really excited me.
Even after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease back in 1991 Michael was able to continue working and performed masterfully. In fact, one of his most successful roles came several years after being diagnosed, when he played Mike Flaherty in Spin City, a role which earned him an Emmy, three Golden Globes, and two screen Actors Guild Awards.
I was really sad to see Michael leave Spin City, especially after finding out about the real reasons why he was leaving the show. Fortunately enough, the network was smart enough to bring someone almost as good as him, Charlie Sheen, but to be totally honest, I felt like the show was never the same again. I’m really happy that Mike’s back again, and he’s actually doing a great job, even better than what I expected. This guy is simply impressive, amazing, hilarious, inspiring, smart, funny, and I could go and on for hours, because there aren’t enough words in the entire vocabulary to praise this man.
But, how much is Michael J. Fox really worth? Well, according to several online media outlets and magazines Mike Andrew Fox has an estimated net worth of $65 million, however, after making our own calculations and taking into account his most recent work, salary and earnings we have come to the conclusion that he has a fortune of $100 million dollars approximately. You might be asking yourself, how come? The Answer is “Royalties” man, ongoing Royalties for all the work he’s put in throughout all his life.
Even though Forbes Magazine has not included Michael J. Fox on their Richest Celebrities list yet, they did rank him as the second most influential celebrity on the planet in 2012, just behind Oprah. Can you believe that? Talk about overcoming obstacles, Mike’s my hero, and if you ever read this man I just want to let you know that I absolutely love and support you. Stay Strong!
