In addition to being one of the most beloved actors ever, the late, great Peter Falk had an estimated net worth of approximately $14 million before his death earlier in 2011. And he certainly wasn't beloved for his net worth. Rather, he had a great screen presence and a mountain of talent to thank for his enduring popularity. His career as an actor began in the theater, making his Broadway debut in a 1956 production of the play Diary of a Scoundrel. He had a generous amount of success on the stage, but he was advised not to expect a thriving career in film because of his now famous glass eye. Falk managed to nab several film roles, though, including a breakout performance in the gangster movie Murder, Inc. From there, Falk defied the naysayers by being cast in the legendary director Frank Capra's final film Pocketful of Miracles. Falk continued to work in small parts in TV and movies until 1968, when he first appeared in what would become his most famous role: Detective Columbo. Falk's portrayal of the ostensibly absent-minded, slovenly police detective went on to appear in a TV series that was also immensely popular. After Columbo, Falk appeared in very artistic films from directors like Wim Wenders and John Cassavetes. He passed away in June, 2011.
