Actor, film producer and screen writer Tim Herlihy has an estimated net worth of $30 million. The New Yorker, who regularly teams up with Adam Sandler, nourished his respectable net worth when he wrote modern comedy films, including The Wedding Singer and Just Roll with It. He also produced the Broadway version of the, The Wedding Singer in 2006. Laugh out loud film comedies like The Wedding Singer, Big Daddy, Grown Ups, Waterboy and Just Roll with It wouldn't exist if it wasn't for the participation of this Tony-nominated genius. Herlihy also had acting parts in The Wedding Singer, Big Daddy, plus many others of his creations.
And when there's Herlihy, there's Adam Sandler. In fact Herlihy is one of the key members at Sandler's film company, Happy Madison since its launch in 1999. Big Daddy, Little Nicky and The Wedding Singer are amongst Herlihy's credits with the company. Herlihy and Sandler's most recent (and ninth) collaboration was the 2011 film, Just Roll With it, starring Jennifer Anniston and Nicole Kidman.
Herlihy produced a musical version of The Wedding Singer which premiered in Broadway in 2006. Although the musical received lukewarm reception by critics, Herlihy did receive a Tony Award nomination for Best Book of a Musical. In addition to his credits at Happy Madison, last year (in 2010) Herlihy was appointed to write a feature length adaption of Pixels – a short film which became an instant internet sensation. The film features classic video game characters including Donkey Kong and Pac man. The Herlihy/Sandler relationship (or collaboration) didn't happen overnight. The beautiful relationship flourished back to the college days when they were students at New York University. Before becoming a successful comedy writer and producer, law-graduate Herlihy was an attorney for Wall Street law firm Cahill, Gordon and Reind, working alongside political commenter Anne Coulter.
