Fisher was born to painter and AIDS activist Sally, and furniture executive Norman Fisher, and apart from American is also of Jewish descent. He became interested in acting at the age of 12 and soon after began appearing in stageplays, including “A Christmas Carol” and “Brighton Beach Memoirs”. His official acting debut occurred in 1981 when he had a brief role in Tony Maylam’s horror movie “The Burning”. This was followed by appearances in “Baby It’s You” (1983) and “The Brother from Another Planet” (1984) as well as “The Flamingo Kid” (1984). All these engagements provided the basis for Fisher Stevens’ net worth.
The real breakthrough in Stevens’ career occurred in 1986, when he was cast for the role of Ben Jabituya in John Badham’s Sci-Fi comedy movie “Short Circuit”. In 1989, Stevens appeared in the “Columbo” TV series, which was followed by the role of Ambrose ‘Bulldog’ Merryweather in “The Young Riders” western TV series. Through the 1990s, Fisher managed to maintain a continuous streak of acting engagements, which included appearances in movies such as “Reversal of Fortune” (1990), “Cold Fever” (1995), “Hackers” (1995), “Four Days in September” (1997) as well as in the TV series “Key West”, “Friends”, “Law & Order” and “Early Edition”. It is certain that all these ventures have made a huge impact on Fisher Stevens’ wealth.
Apart from all those mentioned above, Fisher has added several other memorable acting credits to his professional acting portfolio, such as movies “Undisputed” (2002), ”The Experiment” (2010), “Hail, Caesar!” (2016) and TV series “Law & Order: Criminal Intent”, “Numb3rs”, “Lost” as well as “The Legend of Korra”, “The Night Of” and “The Blacklist”. Besides his on-camera engagements, he has also starred in several Broadway and off-Broadway productions, including “Carousel”, “Torch Song Triology” and over 50 other stageplays. Doubtlessly all these accomplishments have increased Fisher Stevens’ net worth by a large margin.
In 1986, Steven alongside several friends co-founded the off-off-off-Broadway production company Naked Angels, while in 1996 he co-founded a film production company Greene Street Films. In 2010 he debuted as a director with the one-man stage play “Ghetto Klown” while later that year he won an Academy Award for co-producing “The Cove”. In 2012, Fisher directed “Stand Up Guys”, a crime comedy featuring Christopher Walken, Al Pacino and Alan Arkin in the title roles. Fisher’s most recent directing project is the 2016 documentary “Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds” which pictures the mother-daughter relationship between the two. All these accomplishments have helped Fisher Stevens to dramatically increase the total of his net worth.
When it comes to his personal life, Fisher Stevens was in a relationship with Michelle Pfeiffer between 1989 and 1992. In early 2017, Fisher married his long-term girlfriend Alexis Bloom, with whom he recently welcomed their first child, a daughter.
When not acting or directing, Stevens is also an avid skier and scuba diver.
He studied drama at HB Studio in Greenwich Village in New York City.
After getting into Screen Actors Guild for the film The Burning (1981) , he changed his name to Fisher Stevens since there was already a Steven Fisher in the Guild.
Avid scuba diver.
Very good friends with actor Rob Morrow, and the two regularly ski together. Once, while skiing with Chad Lowe, the three got lost and had to be rescued.
His sister Julie Stevens is an architect in Chicago.
I really wanted to be born a woman. It all started there. A South American woman. And I'm upset that I was born a white Jewish male. I've been angry since.
I have a bit of a traveling addiction, and, ah, yeah. I went to, ah, Bali this summer.
I'm really obsessed with the past.
It got a little boring I guess, playing the same note over and over.
But I like being nasty. I like being cranky. Especially if it's a cold day in Chicago, it's nice to just take it out on Kyle, because he's so easy to scream at, you know?
No, but I'm really lucky, because I'm not the superhero.
But I'm trying to play into this role as much as possible and be a nicer person in real life.
But basically what I like are the possibilities, and the fantasy element of the show. Not science fantasy so much, but fantasy, the humanistic elements and how people relate when they're in a dire situation or comedic situation.
I used to be more of a wild kid. But I've slowed down.
But I used to have a bit of a gambling problem. And that would have been the answer to my prayers. It got worse when I started playing this character, too.
Unfortunately, the public might not know that we get a script usually two days before shooting. So sometimes I'm shooting an episode and don't even know how it's going to end because I haven't read that yet.
But did I think it would last more than 13 episodes at the time? No, I didn't think that. I never know.
I like people and get along, and I'm afraid to express my anger and my rage.
You know, it's a very sexist society, Indonesia.
And TV is not the easiest place to be dangerous or on the edge. Especially on a Saturday night.
I wanted to do an episode about Chuck having a gambling problem. I wanted to portray my addiction on the show. But I think it's a little edgy for Saturday night.
The reason I took Early Edition - besides the fact that I liked it - was that it enabled me to start a production company in New York City. It's a low-budget film company to produce and direct movies.
I use that as my responsibility on the show, to be the pragmatist.
Well, I just wanted to be a person. I just wanted them to keep writing me as humanistic as possible.
