Award-winning actor, Judd Hirsch has an estimated net worth of $12 million. Hirsch acquired his net worth through forging a life-long career in acting, appearing in classic TV series and plays. Hirsch landed his first acting job in the 70's miniseries The Law and then went on to feature in the drama film Ordinary People (1980). Hirsch received an Academy nomination (Best Supporting Actor) for his role in the film. Since then, Hirsch had prominent roles in a string of drama films in the 80's which include, Without a Trace (1983), Teachers (1984) and Running on Empty (1988). More recently Hirsch has been in Independence Day and A Beautiful Mind.
Without a doubt the 76 year old was at the pinnacle of his career when he landed a lead role in the popular television series Taxi. This time the recognition paid off as Hirsch received two Emmy Awards for Lead Actor in a Comedy Series in 1981 and 1983. Hirsch was also the main character in another 80's popular TV series, Dear John – and the awards just kept on rolling in the actor's way. He won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Comedy series for his role. Hirsch wasn't a stranger to theatres: In the early nineties, he was featured in the play, Conversations with my Father alongside David Krumholtz. Once again he received a Tony Award for Best Actor in a Play. The Hirsch/Krumholtz relationship did not end with the 1992 sensational play: they also appeared in TV series Numb3ers. Krumholtz hailed Hirsch for 'jump-starting' his career. Hirsch also took on the lead role in the play, I'm Not Rappaport in which he received a Tony Award back in 1986.
At the turn of the century, the veteran actor shows no signs of slowing down. Hirsch has made guest appearances in Warehouse 13, Studio 60 on the Sun Strip, Law and Order: SUV and the Whole Truth. Hirsch provided his voice for American Dad and Tom Goes to the Major.
