Rodger Bumpass spent his childhood in his hometown, and attended Little Rock Central High School which was the first place where he got a chance to get familiar with theater, so he became interested in acting. Upon matriculation, he enrolled at Arkansas State University, where he majored in Radio-TV with a minor in Theater.
Right after graduation, Rodger started working at the radio station on campus, and beside that, he got a job at Jonesboro’s Raycom Media, which was owned by KAIT-TV, where he did various technical jobs as cameraman, film processor, technical director and announcer. While there, his first jobs directly related to acting business happened when he started performing, producing and writing scripts for “Mid-Century Nonsense Festival Featuring Kumquat Theater”, a popular comedy program at the time. His university professors told him that he was very talented and that he should be a professional actor, so he moved to New York in order to pursue an acting career.
Thus, his professional career started in 1977, when he got a role in the music and comedy road show “That’s Not Funny, That’s Sick”, and he went on many tours with them during 1977 to 1978. Right after leaving the show, he was given an opportunity by HBO to appear in the TV film “Disco Beaver From Outer Space” (1978). In the following year, he was guest at the National Lampoon’s album of humorous songs and spoken word skits, “The White Album” as an inventor of the character of Fartman. All of these appearances marked the beginning of an increase of his net worth.
In 1984, Rodger won the role of Chuck Fodder in the TV series “Hot Flashes”, starring alongside Mark King and Kevin Pollak, and during the same year, he was selected to provide his voice in “Alvin & The Chipmunks”. Since then, his career has only gone upwards, as well as his net worth. In 1987 he voiced Moe in the TV series “Mighty Mouse, The New Adventures” through 1988, and in the following year, he landed the voice to Scorch in “Ring Raiders” and to Louis Tully in “The Real Ghostbusters” (1989-1990).
To speak further about his career, Rodger has been voicing Squidward Tentacles in the animated TV series “SpongeBob SquarePants” since 1999, which has added a considerable amount to his net worth. Moreover, he also did voice-overs in “Invader ZIM” (2001-2003), “Lilo & Stitch” (2002), “Ice Age: The Meltdown” (2006), among others.
Most recently, he did a voice-over for the video game entitled “Dragon Age: Inquisition” (2014), was a narrator in the TV series “Mixels” (2015–2016), and will appear in the movie “SpongeBob SquarePants 3” which is scheduled for a release in 2019, so his net worth is certainly still rising.
As he showed great talent during his successful acting career, Rodger has received several notable nominations, including for Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program in 2012 for his work on “SpongeBob SquarePants”, as well as for BTVA Television Voice Acting Award for Best Vocal Ensemble in a Television Series – Children’s/Educational.
