Actor Charles S. Dutton has a healthy estimated net worth of approximately $9 million to go along with his healthy resume. But a net worth like that doesn't come easily, even in Hollywood. Dutton's career began under arduous circumstances. As a result of his rough childhood, he spent much of his younger years in prison – and during a 6-day stint in solitary confinement, Dutton became enamored with the subject of the one book he was allowed to bring with him: Black playwrights. So enamored, in fact, he petitioned the prison's warden to approve the inception of a prison drama group. It was from these humble beginnings that Dutton eventually made it to Broadway, making his debut in 1984 in the play Ma Rainey's Black Bottom.

It was only a matter of time before Dutton made the transition to TV and movies, appearing in movies like Alien3, in which he used his experience in prison to use as a character in an outer space prison colony, and Rudy. Dutton has also found work behind the camera, directing the HBO miniseries The Corner, based on the book by David Simon. Simon, of course, would go on to create the HBO series The Wire, which has many similarities to The Corner. Dutton's latest project is to develop, direct, and star in a series for HBO.
