This man has been busy in the movie and television industry ever since the year 1986 and during this period he has earned 67 acting credits. In this article we are going to overview Eric’s professional career, highlighting the most important one of the roles he had.
The actor we are speaking about made his movie debut in 1986, appearing on The Boys from Syracuse. But it took years before Eric McCormack net worth has started to grow with any considerable speed. If you look at his filmography (as provided by wikipedia.org, for example), you will notice that until the early 1990s the actor was unemployed. I think this must have been an extremely difficult period for Eric, because young actors tend to hope every role they apply for would be given to them right away. In one of the interviews McCormack has said: „I think most actors go into the business thinking: ‘I can play everything. Why can’t I play a black woman? Just give me a chance.’ Then you grow up and realize it’s probably better that they cast an actual black woman“.
With years Eric learned to pick out the roles that he actually stood a chance at getting and his career started to go upwards. Over the 1990s he has appeared on variety of television movies (such as Double, Double, Toil and Trouble, Exception to the Rule and The Man Who Wouldn’t Die), some films that reached the cinemas (Exception to the Rule, for example) and even became a series regular: Eric appeared on 43 episodes of the show Lonesome Dove: The Series. But a real breakthrough in his career came up in the year 1998, as the actor was cast for ne of the two starring roles on television series Will & Grace. Over 8 years on this show McCormack has received variety of accolades for the performance as Will Truman. But most importantly, he received a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series and was nominated for 5 Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Television Series Musical or Comedy. Needless to say, the salary for Will & Grace has made a solid contribution to the overall Eric McCormack net worth.

Over the last four years or so the main source of Eric McCormack net worth has been his salary for shows Pound Puppies and Perception.
