Michael Madsen net worth: Michael Madsen is an American actor, poet and photographer who has a net worth of $2 million. Michael Madsen has made his net worth from his roles in movies, TV, voicing in video games and so much more. Born Michael Søren Madsen on September 25, 1957, in Chicago, Illinois, he has proved that he is more into delivering a good performance than enjoying the perks of fame. Madsen first started learning the craft at Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre, where he studied under the direction of fellow actor John Malkovich. Soon after, he landed his first film roles that were minor ones, in projects like Against All Hope (1982), Racing with the Moon (1984) and The Natural (1984). Once he moved to Los Angeles, Madsen went on to build his credibility making several television and film appearances. These led to bigger parts such as: deranged killer Vince Miller in Kill Me Again (1989) and then as Susan Sarandon's rough-edged boyfriend Jimmy in Thelma & Louise (1991). His knife-edged performance in the latter caught the attention of famed director Quentin Tarantino, who would give Madsen his breakthrough opportunity in 1992's low-budget hit Reservoir Dogs. Madsen earned for the role both critical acclaim and a nod from audiences, while securing his reputation for him as psychopathic murderer on screen. He has since played in hundreds of movies portraying various roles, including a loving foster parent in Free Willy (1993), a kitten-loving sociopath in The Getaway (1994), a seasoned alien assassin in Species (1995) and CIA agent in Die Another Day (2002) among others. But off-screen, Madsen has had two more dedications: writing and photography. As a writer, he penned several books of poetry and prose, establishing himself as a true rebel poet in the style of the classic beats and Charles Bukowski. An accomplished photographer, he released his first book of photography entitled: Signs of Life, in 2006.
