Sam Gores net worth: Sam Gores is an American talent agent who has a net worth of $50 million dollars. Born in Nazareth, Israel to parents of Lebanese and Greek descent, Sam Gores relocated to Flint, Michigan with his family when he was 14 years. He began working as a butcher when he was 16, and was on his way to a career as a grocer by the time he was 18. He caught the acting bug a few years later, and enrolled in the American Academy of the Dramatic Arts, which had just opened a school on the West Coast. He realized fairly quickly that while he liked performing, he found working behind the scenes to be more interesting. Over the course of the next seven years, he would work for three different agencies, slowly building a positive reputation in Hollywood. In 1986, he opened his own agency, SGA Representation, Inc. SGA went on to become the very powerful agency known as Paradigm, for which Mr. Gores currently serves as Chairman. Current clients include Adrien Brody, Chris Copper, Neil Patrick Harris, Aerosmith, Coldplay, The Black Eyed Peas, and The Fray, among many other successful artists.
