Albert Brooks Net Worth: Albert Brooks is an American actor, voice actor, writer, comedian and director who has a net worth of $23 million. Albert Brooks was born July 22, 1947 in Beverly Hills, California. Brooks received an Academy Award for his role in Broadcast News (a romantic comedy-drama). His voice acting credits include Marlin the clownfish in Finding Nemo and recurring guest voices for the animated television series The Simpsons. He has written, directed and starred in several comedy films such as Modern Romance (1981), Lost in America (1985) and Defending Your Life (1991) and is the author of the satire 2030: The Real Story of What Happens to America (2011). He also made two successful comedy albums: Comedy Minus One (1973) and the Grammy Award-nominated A Star Is Bought (1975), after which Brooks left the stand-up circuit to try his hand as a filmmaker. His first film, The Famous Comedians School, was a satiric short that appeared on PBS and was an early example of the mockumentary sub-genre. Throughout the '80s and '90s, Brooks co-wrote (with longtime collaborator Monica Johnson), directed and starred in a series of well-received comedies, playing varied degrees of his standard neurotic and self-obsessed character. His best-received film to date was Lost in America (1985). Brooks also performed in other writers' and directors' films during the '80s and '90s, including a cameo in the opening scene of Twilight Zone: The Movie and in James L. Brooks' hit Broadcast News (1987); Albert Brooks was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor as the insecure, supremely ethical network TV reporter, who offers the rhetorical question, "Wouldn't this be a great world if insecurity and desperation made us more attractive?" He also won accolades for his role in 1998's Out of Sight, playing an untrustworthy banker and ex-convict. In 1997, Brooks married Kimberly Shlain, then a 31-year old website designer and they had two children.
