About Eric Stonestreet
As for the day, Eric Stonestreet net worth amounts to $13 million and this fact just begs a question: where all this fortune comes from? The general answer is short, simple and probably known for all of you: the money flows from his acting career, which started in the late 1990s. But what are the exact roles, television shows and movies that increased Eric Stonestreet net worth to millions of dollars? How did he decide to be an actor on the first place? We are going to answer both of these questions in the following paragraphs.
According to the actor, he has never been particularly good at school. The boy was really lazy and the only class he used to pay attention at was sociology. And do you think that like so many kids Eric daydreamed about becoming an actor? If you do, you are pretty far from the truth. In one of his interviews Eric has shared his real childhood dream: “When I was a kid, I wanted to be a clown. I didn’t want to be an actor, I wanted to join the circus and entertain people.”. Hence, at the age of 9 he created a fictional character (which might have also served as his alter ego, or something alike), a clown named Fizbo. He has since brought him back to life numerous times as an adult actor. For example, you may have seen Fizbo in television series Modern Family. Anyway, as we all know Eric’s childhood dream did not come true: he neither became a professional clown nor joined the circus (and maybe that was for the best). However, I think it is safe to say that Stonestreet has kept the passion for making people laugh and managed to transfer it into his acting career. Eric is quoted saying: “The most important thing for me as an actor playing a character is to make you laugh. That’s my No. 1 goal”.
Now let’s cut to the chase and speak about his fortunes. Eric Stonestreet net worth started to grow at a considerable speed in the late 1990s-early 2000s, as he started his career on movies and television. His debut was on TV show Dharma & Greg. The following year, in 2000, the actor featured on a movie Almost Famous. I would say that Eric’s career on movies has never actually taken off. However, he has been pretty successful on television. For the last 5 years the actor has been portraying Cameron Tucker on Modern Family. Not only this role has garnered him variety of prestigious awards, such as Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series and Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series, it has also increased Eric Stonestreet net worth by great deal.
