With an estimated net worth of approximately $10 million dollars, Scott Bakula has done better for himself than his low-key persona would indicate. But the proof is in the net worth, and Scott Bakula is a hard-working actor with talent to spare. Bakula's career in acting began after he was cast in a touring production of Godspell. Unfortunately, the production was discontinued before it began and he ended up working in a dinner theater in New York City. He was destined for better things as an actor than dinner theater, though. He soon made his Broadway debut in the stage production Marilyn: An American Fable, playing the part of Joe DiMaggio. His star on the Broadway stage continued to rise until he was cast as the lead in the scifi TV drama Quantum Leap, which featured his character "leaping" into a new time period every week. The show was a cult hit and respectable ratings success, lasting five seasons, and became his signature show. Since Quantum Leap, Bakula has continued to appear on TV and on stage, most notably on the TV series Star Trek Enterprise and Men of a Certain Age, on which he did his most acclaimed work to date.
