About Dave Franco
As for the day, Dave Franco net worth is estimated at $2 million dollars. Dave, who is most famous for his roles on movies 21 Jump Street, Charlie St. Cloud, Fright Night, Now You See Me, Warm Bodies and Neighbors, is a younger Brother of American actor, director, producer, author and teacher James Franco. James started his Professional career in 1997 and ascended to stardom with cult hit television program Freaks and Geeks by the time his younger Brother turned 15. Partially due to his older age, so far James has managed to achieve much more than Dave. He already holds Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Miniseries or Television Film, Independent Spirit Award for Best Supporting Male, National Society of Film Critics Award for Best Supporting Actor and a fortune that makes Dave Franco net worth seem pretty miserable ($20 million).
If you look at some of his quotes, you will notice that at least for a long period in the past Dave has felt like he is living in the shadow of his brother. For example, the actor has admitted that he has been trying to distance himself from James: „As much as I love and respect my brother, I’m doing my best to distance myself from him and kind of show people that, even though we do look similar and have similar mannerisms, we are completely different“. I think this was his way of trying to get people to appreciate him for who he is – an adult, independent actor. Plus, it looks like Dave had to fight against common misconception that he owes his fame to his brother and would not be capable of building a lasting career as an actor on his own. For example, he is quoted saying: „my brother helped me get a manager, which I don’t take for granted. (…) But from there, no one’s going to cast me just because I’m James Franco’s little brother.“ I think while saying these words Dave was actually exaggerating the problem. Because if the reputation of his Brother was such a major obstacle as he fought, today Dave Franco net worth would not amount to $2 million dollars. The actor who is this rich must have something more, than good connections.
So what is it that Dave has? Personally, even though I actually consider him as talented actor, I don‘t think it was his acting talent that played a major role in helping him to secure roles so far. As for the day, Dave still hasn‘t received any significant recognition from the critics, but he does hold a Young Hollywood Award for Fan Favorite. So I guess it is his innate charm and unexplainably attractive manners that are actually responsible for the rapid growth of Dave Franco net worth.
