Ernie Hudson net worth: Ernie Hudson is an American actor who has a net worth of $15 million. But it's not his surprisingly large net worth that Hudson is most known for. Rather, Ernie Hudson is lodged in most people's consciousness as Ghostbuster Winston Zeddemore in the classic 1980s supernatural comedy Ghostbusters and its sequel. Hudson's career began in the 1970s, appearing in the film Penitentiary, starring Leon Isaac Kennedy. From there, Hudson began working in various TV shows of the time, such as The A-Team and The Dukes of Hazzard. It wasn't until the mid 1980s that Hudson received his most famous role as Zeddemore, the character who has the world's shortest job interview in order to become a member of the Ghostbusters. Interestingly, while Hudson auditioned to do the character's voice on the Ghostbusters animated series, he lost the part to Arsenio Hall. Since Ghostbusters, Hudson has appeared in a variety of projects, not the least of which is Ghostbusters II. He can also be seen in the cult action film The Crow, directed by Alex Proyas and starring the late Brandon Lee, and the HBO prison series Oz. Currently, he can be seen in the BBC science fiction series Torchwood.
