About Bill Pullman
As for the day, Bill Pullman net worth is estimated at $18 million dollars. Those of you who are not particularly interested in movies, but love American Dad!, might know this actor as a cartoon character. In one of the episodes of this American adult animated sitcom Bill is portrayed as a very mediocre and forgettable actor, who often confuses himself with another actor, Bill Paxton. However, I would argue that in real life Paxton is nothing like the caricature character based on him. I will support my statement with the number that I have already mentioned: Bill Pullman net worth amounts to $18 million dollars and this is not the kind of money that is paid for mediocre actors. But let’s take a closer look at his career, so you could form an opinion all by yourself.
Bill was born in New York, where he graduated from Hornell High School. Following this he has received a profound education from State University of New York at Delhi, State University of New York at Oneonta and University of Massachusetts Amherst. After earning his Masters of Fine Arts in the latter of these universities, Bill has started teaching theatre at the SUNY at Delhi, where he was formerly a student. Sometime in his early 20s, when the future millionaire was still studying, he received a serious injury. After falling over during one of the rehearsals he has spent a several days in a comma. Fortunately, the actor woke up, but he no longer had a sense of smell. Bill likes to joke that sometimes when he is working in a ranch, which he owns together with his brother’s family, this disability actually proves useful.
Now strangely enough, Pullman has made his movie and television debut only in 1986, when he was already 33 years old. As far as I know, before that Bill did not even seriously consider pursuing career in movies and television and he only attempted for a role with a great encouragement from his students. Thanks to his education and skills, Bill Pullman net worth began growing pretty rapidly soon after his debut in Ruthless People, where he played a supporting role as Earl Mott. The following year he starred in American comic science fiction parody film Spaceballs. The movie received mixed critical reviews, but mostly not because it wasn’t funny, but just because making a Star Wars parody ten years after the original film reached the cinemas seemed pointless.
I think the most successful period in Bills career was the year 1995-1997. during his time four relatively successful and memorable movies of his reached the cinemas: While You Were Sleeping, Casper, Independence Day and Lost Highway. The salary for each of them has made a significant contribution to the overall Bill Pullman net worth.
