Musician and actor Chris Isaak has an estimated net worth of about $21 million. That net worth may come as a surprise, since Isaak isn't one of the most ubiquitous pop culture figures out there these days. But with his music featured in such films as Blue Velvet and Eyes Wide Shut, and his continued success as a musician on tour and in the studio, it shouldn't come as a surprise at all. Isaak's career in music began in 1984 with his first album Silvertone. It was two tracks off of that album that were featured in the aforementioned David Lynch film Blue Velvet, and that put Isaak on the map.
In 2001, Isaak branched out into the world of TV comedy, starring in The Chris Isaak Show on Showtime. The show, which featured fictionalized versions of Isaak and his band, also had a theme song composed by Isaak. His career as an actor has continued, with his relationship with David Lynch leading to a major part in the director's Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me. He's also made movies with director Jonathan Demme, including The Silence of the Lambs and Married to the Mob. His latest project is The Chris Isaak Hour, a series featuring interviews with assorted musicians and songwriters.
