Peter Gallagher is more famous for his legendary eyebrows than his estimated net worth of approximately $16 million. But that net worth came from more than just eyebrows – he's worked steadily as an actor on stage and on TV and in movies since 1980. His big screen debut that year was in the movie The Idolmaker. From there, he got his first seriously acclaimed role in Steven Soderbergh's breakout indie hit sex, lies, and videotape. Three years later, in 1992, he appeared in Robert Altman's The Player, putting his smarmy charm to work as Tim Robbins' professional rival. He continued to work in big movies throughout the 90s and 00s in such movies as Mr. Deeds, American Beauty, and While You Were Sleeping. One of his most famous roles to date is that of Sandy Cohen, public defender on the popular FOX drama The OC. In an inspiring case of life imitating art, Gallagher continues to host The Sandys, an annual award ceremony which offers a law scholarship to a UC Berkeley student who wishes to be a public defender. Peter Gallagher isn't just an actor, though- he's also flirted with a music career, releasing an album entitled 7 Days in Memphis.
