Barry Corbin was born a son of Alma LaMerle Scott, a teacher, and Kilmer Blaine Corbin, Sr., a former member of the Texas State Senate. He went to Monterey High School where he played football and then enrolled at the Texas Tech University to study theatre arts. After joining the US Marine Corps, where he spent two years, Barry returned to the college to finish his studies.

Corbin started his career as a Shakespearean actor in the ‘60s, but his first on-screen credit came in an episode of “NBC Special Treat” in 1976. In 1980, he appeared alongside John Travolta, Debra Winger, and Scott Glenn in the Golden Globe Award-nominated “Urban Cowboy”, while he also played in “Stir Crazy” (1980) with Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor, and “Any Which Way You Can” (1980) starring Clint Eastwood. Barry had numerous roles in television series and TV feature movies during the ‘80s, including John Badham’s Oscar Award-nominated “War Games” (1983) with Matthew Broderick, Ally Sheedy and John Wood, which only increased his net worth.

From 1990 to 1995, Corbin played Maurice J. Minnifield in 110 episodes of the Golden Globe Award-winning series “Northern Exposure”, which helped him to increase his net worth significantly, thanks to its popularity and so high ratings. In the meantime, he appeared alongside Sam Elliott and Katharine Ross in a Golden Globe Award-nominated TV movie called “Conagher” (1991), and continued to work on various TV shows and movies throughout the ‘90s. In the early 2000s, Corbin had roles alongside Tom Selleck in “Crossfire Trail” (2001) and in the Primetime Emmy Award-nominated “Monte Walsh” (2003) with Isabella Rossellini and Keith Carradine, while from 2003 to 2009, he played Brian ‘Whitey’ Durham in 90 episodes of “One Tree Hill”, considerably boosting his net worth.

From 2007 to 2012, Barry appeared in 13 episodes of the Golden Globe Award-winning series “The Closer”, while in 2007, he had a part in Joel & Ethan Coen’s Oscar Award-winning “No Country for Old Men” starring Tommy Lee Jones, Javier Bardem and Josh Brolin. Corbin ended the decade with “The Grand” (2007) alongside Woody Harrelson, David Cross and Dennis Farina, in Paul Haggis’ Oscar Award-nominated “In the Valley of Elah” (2007) starring Tommy Lee Jones and Charlize Theron, and in “That Evening Sun” (2009). In 2010, Corbin appeared in “Bloodworth” with Val Kilmer, Kris Kristofferson, and Hilary Duff, while from 2012 to 2014, he played Ed in 100 episodes of “Anger Management” starring Charlie Sheen. Most recently, Barry had a role in “The Homesman” (2014) alongside Tommy Lee Jones and Hilary Swank, while he’s currently filming “An American in Texas” and “The Time War”, which will be released later in 2017; his net worth is still rising.

Regarding his personal life, Barry Corbin was married to Marie Elyse Soape from 1965 to 1974 and has a child with her, while from 1976 to 1993, he was married to Susan Berger, with whom he has two children.

1We still need to feed the public, both physically and intellectually.
2Henry Fonda one time said that every time he had a job, he thought it was gonna' be the last one. And, if you got any sense, you gotta' think that because, you know when somebody's gonna do a dip, some of 'em go pretty far down.
3For an actor, you're rejected eight or ten times a day. All you've got to sell is yourself. You're not selling products, they're not turning down a car, they're turning you down. Most people can't handle that. Most people are essentially not set up that way.
4I worked on 'Lonesome Dove' three weeks all together. When I heard they were doing it, I wanted to be involved since I'd read the book.
5I read that book, 'Lonesome Dove,' and I told my agent that they were gonna make a miniseries out of it and I wanted to be in it. I didn't care what part.
6I think for the last fifteen, twenty years or so, Hollywood has underestimated the appeal of the Western. I think there is still a huge market.
7Bill Cosby, you know, he's a delightful guy.
8I love Westerns!
