Actor Tony Shalhoub, most famous for playing the title role in the popular USA detective series Monk, has a net worth of $30 million. He accumulated this net worth by maintaining a long and prolific career in Hollywood, both on the big screen and on television. Shalhoub's career in show business began on the stage, however, making his Broadway debut in a 1985 production of the Neil Simon comedy The Odd Couple. From there, Shalhoub won a Tony award for this performance in the play Conversations with My Father. It wasn't long before Shalhoub began to get work in television, landing a role on the sitcom Wings that ended up being one of his signature characters. After that, he began to appear in many movies as a character actor. Films such as Barton Fink, The Man Who Wasn't There, Quick Change, and Men In Black all benefit from his presence and taken together showcase his ability to portray a variety of different characters. In 2002, Shalhoub landed what became his most famous role yet (after it was turned down by none other than Seinfeld's Michael Richards) – the obsessive compulsive detective, Adrian Monk, on the mystery series Monk. The show ran for seven years and has gained a cult following, due in no small part to Shalhoub's excellent work in the lead role.
