Jason Weaver Net Worth
Jason Weaver net worth and salary: Jason Weaver is an American actor and singer who has a net worth of $4 million. Jason Weaver was born in Chicago, Illinois, and began his professional acting career in the early 90s, appearing in such projects as "The Kid Who Loved Christmas", "Brewster Place", "The Long Walk Home", and "The Jacksons: An American Dream". He then went on to a steady career in both film and television projects, including, "Sister, Sister", "Freedom Song", "Drumline", "The Ladykillers", "ATL", "Jada", "Love for Sale", "Lottery Ticket", "The LeBrons", "He's Mine Not Yours", and "Dysfunctional Friends". He is most widely recognized for his roles on "Thea" and "Smart Guy". He also provided the singing voice of Simba in "The Lion King". He released one studio album, "Love Ambition", in 1995, and one EP, "Stay With Me", the following year. He also performed on the popular track, "Once Call Away", with Chingy.
Lion King Salary/Earnings: In an October 2019 interview with VladTV, Jason revealed that he turned down a $2 million flat fee for his role in The Lion King. That's around $3.5 million after adjusting for inflation to today's dollars. Instead he opted for $100,000 plus a share of future royalties from the songs and movie. In the interview he claimed that over the ensuing decades, this turned out to be a very wise choice because he still earns checks to this day and his total earnings have topped the original $2 million offer. Although, the counter argument would be that $1 million in 1994 (after paying taxes) invested in the S&P 500 with dividend reinvestment, would conservatively be $9 million today.
