Johnny Galecki Net Worth
Johnny Galecki Net Worth and Salary: Johnny Galecki is a Belgian-born American actor who has a net worth of $100 million. Johnny Galecki was born April 30, 1975 in Bree, Belgium. He gained his American citizenship because both of his parents are American; his father was part of the U.S. Air Force and was stationed in Belgium at the time of his birth. His family moved back to Oak Park, Illinois when he was three years old. Galecki's acting career began at a young age when he appeared in stage productions at age 7. When he was just 11 years old, he had already been nominated for a Joseph Jefferson Award for his role in the play The Member of the Wedding. Galecki started acting for the screen in 1987 and made the rounds of television movies and guest roles in regular shows. In 1992, he joined the cast of the successful sitcom Roseanne where he played the role of David Healy, the soft-spoken and art-inclined boyfriend, and later husband, of middle child Darlene Connor (Sara Gilbert); he played the role until the show's finale in 1997. He then appeared in several films, including Bean, Suicide Kings, I Know What You Did Last Summer, The Opposite of Sex, Vanilla Sky and Bookies. Galecki returned to television in the early 2000s, playing recurring roles in the comedies My Boys and Hope & Faith. In 2007, he joined the cast of the sitcom The Big Bang Theory, which reunited him with his Roseanne co-star Sara Gilbert. On Big Bang he plays the role of Leonard Hofstadter, an experimental physicist from the California Institute of Technology who has a deep crush on new neighbor Penny (Kaley Cuoco) and does everything he can to get her attention. Galecki continues to appear on stage, notably appearing in the Broadway play The Little Dog Laughed, where he was required to do full frontal nudity in his role as a male prostitute.
Johnny Galecki Big Bag Salary History: For the first season of Big Bang, Johnny earned $60,000 per episode. That works out to a little more than $1 million for the season. For seasons two through 4 his salary was boosted to $250,000 per episode. That's $17.5 million in earnings for that 70 episode chunk. For seasons five through seven she earned $350,000 per episode. That's another $25.2 million in earnings. For season 8, 9 and 10 she earned $1 million per episode, which translates to $72 million for the three seasons. For the final two seasons, 11 and 12, Johnny and his main cast co-stars each earned $1 million per episode. That's $48 million for the two seasons.
Total it all up and from original salary alone, Johnny earned $163.7 million. But that's not all!
Royalties and Residuals: During the later seasons of the show when the cast was at the height of their power, the three main cast members (Kaley, Johnny Galecki and Jim Parsons) negotiated a deal where they each would own 1% of the show's backend equity. In the first year of syndication sales, the show generated $1 billion. That meant each of the three earned and extra $10 million in the first year. The syndication sales slowly dwindle but they should each earn around $10 million per year for the next decade.
