John Turturro Net Worth
John Turturro Net Worth: John Turturro is an American actor, writer and director who has a net worth of $24 million. John Turturro was born February 28, 1957 in Brooklyn, New York. He is known for his roles in the films Do the Right Thing (1989), Miller's Crossing (1990), Barton Fink (1991), Quiz Show (1994), The Big Lebowski (1998), O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000) and the first three films in the Transformers film series (2007–2011). He has appeared in over sixty films and has worked frequently with the Coen brothers, Adam Sandler and Spike Lee. Turturro became the go-to guy for volatile, complex characters. Because of his distinct but indistinguishable appearance, the Yale Drama School grad was able to play a wide array of ethnic characters, giving him the opportunity to add more depth to cinema's historically two-dimensional Italians, Jews and Latinos. While Turturro made his home in independent film, he enjoyed commercial success as well. Meanwhile, as a writer and director, he helmed three original films, including his ode to '50s working-class Queens, Mac (1992) and an homage to turn-of-the-century Italian theater, Illuminata (1999). Despite avoiding television throughout his career, Turturro emerged in 2004 with an Emmy for a guest stint on Monk and in 2007 earned kudos for his portrayal of combative Yankees' manager Billy Martin in the ESPN mini-series The Bronx is Burning. His stage directorial debut was in October 2011 with the Broadway play Relatively Speaking in which he guided an ensemble of veteran actors in a production of three comedic one-act plays, written by Elaine May, Woody Allen and Ethan Coen. The cast included Julie Kavner, Marlo Thomas, Mark Linn-Baker and Steve Guttenberg. Turturro's brother is actor Nicholas Turturro; artist Ralph Turturro, composer and film director Richard Termini and actress Aida Turturro are his cousins, and his wife is actress Katherine Borowitz.
