Michael Madsen net worth: Michael Madsen is an American actor, poet and photographer who has a net worth of $10 million. Michael Madsen was born Michael Søren Madsen on September 25, 1957, in Chicago, Illinois. 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 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 more 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 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 received critical acclaim for his part. He has since appeared many more 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. Off-screen, Madsen has had two more passions: 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. Madsen's net worth would be higher, but he filed for bankruptcy in 2009 and was sued by a former landlord for racking up $80,000 worth of unpaid rent on a house in Malibu. At the time of his bankruptcy filing, Madsen claimed his monthly income was just $3300. His career and finances have recovered nicely since then, thanks mainly to the fact that Michael has appeared in dozens of movies to clear his debts.
