Peter MacNicol Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Peter MacNicol was born on 10 April 1954, in Dallas, Texas USA, of part- Norwegian descent, and is an actor, known for his numerous roles on stage, in film, and on television. He won a Theatre World Award in his Broadway debut “Cries of the Heart”, and other projects he has been a part of include “Ghostbusters II” and “Bean”, but all of his efforts have helped put his net worth to where it is today.

How rich is Peter MacNicol? As of mid-2017, sources estimate a net worth that is at $5 million, mostly earned through a successful career as an actor. He won a Primetime Emmy Award for his performance in the series “Ally McBeal”, playing the lawyer John Cage. As he continues his career, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.

Peter started his career performing in the Guthrie Theater in 1978, appearing in productions such as “The Pretenders” and “Hamlet”. This then led him to appear in the 1980 off-Broadway play “Crimes of the Heart”, which would move to Broadway a year later. His performance earned him a Theatre World Award, and his popularity began to increase. This led him to be cast in “Sophie’s Choice”, as well as his first film starring role in “Dragonslayer”. In 1987, he joined the Trinity Repertory Company production “All the King’s Men” – his net worth was rising steadily.

He continued doing stage projects in the next few years, including “Black Comedy/White Lies”, and was also given title roles in “Romeo and Juliet” and “Richard II”. His film opportunities continued, including for “Ghostbusters II” and “Addams Family Values” which helped increase his net worth too. In 1994, he became a part of “Chicago Hope”, in which he stayed for nearly two seasons before taking on another role in “Ally McBeal”. His net worth increased significantly, as he became well-known for his performance as the eccentric attorney John Cage, and won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in 2001. He was then cast in the drama “Numbers”, playing physicist Dr. Larry Fleinhardt, and in the sixth season of the hit show “24”, playing Tom Lennox. He would reprise his role in the film “24: Redemption”, and also played a receptionist in an episode of “Cheers”.

MacNicol has also been involved in voice acting work, notably voicing several comic book supervillains in various projects, including “The Batman” in which he voiced Man-Bat, and in “Justice League Unlimited” and “Young Justice”. Other voice projects have included “Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law”, and “The Spectacular Spiderman”, voicing Doctor Octopus. He also lent his voice to the “Arkham” video game series, in which he played the Mad Hatter, and appears in “Batman: Arkham City”, “Batman: Arkham Origins”, and “Batman: Arkham Knight”.

A few of his recent projects include playing Dr. Stark in “Grey’s Anatomy”, and as a guest in the fifth season of “Veep”, for which he was nominated for an Emmy. This was rescinded, however, when there were changes in what qualified as a guest actor.

For his personal life, it is known that Peter has been married to Martha Sue Cumming since 1986.

Looks like we don't have Peter MacNicol salary information. Sorry!


#Fact
1His paternal grandfather, originally surnamed "Jonnsen", was of Norwegian descent. Peter's other ancestry is French-Canadian, Irish, Austrian, German, English, Dutch, and Scots-Irish (Northern Irish).
2In an interview in Starlog 148 (published November 1989), MacNicol revealed that in the original script for Ghostbusters II (1989), the character of Janosz Poha was a rather lackluster villain called Jason. It was MacNicol who suggested to Ivan Reitman and Harold Ramis to make the art restorer come from Carpathia, linking him to the painting of Vigo. During filming, MacNicol spent a lot of time in his trailer, creating Janosz' origin and accent, as well as a mythology for Carpathia. He even came up with his own vision for a Carpathian flag, which featured a snake stepping on a man.
3Is one of four 24 (2001) actors to appear in every episode of the only season in which they appeared. The others are Leslie Hope (Day 1), James Badge Dale (Day 3), and Marisol Nichols (Day 6).
4His wife, Marsue, runs a not-for-profit foundation that helps inner-city children in Los Angeles.
5Listed as one of twelve "Promising New Actors of 1981" in John Willis' Screen World, Vol. 33.

#Quote
1Acting is a kind of madness. A managed madness. As we strive for emotional truth in our playing, we must necessarily reach down into scarred-over wounds, and feel the old pains, over and over again.
