Judge Reinhold Net Worth and Salary: Judge Reinhold is an American actor who has a net worth of $5 million. Reinhold is best known for appearing in a number of films throughout the 80s, including "Ruthless People," "Fast Times at Ridgemont High," "Gremlins," and well-known franchises such as "The Santa Clause" and "Beverly Hills Cop." All in all, Reinhold has appeared in more than 60 movies.
Early Life: Edward Ernest Reinhold Jr. was born on May 21st of 1957 in Wilmington, Delaware. Fathered by a lawyer, Edward was raised in Fredericksburg, Virginia before his family moved to Martin County, Florida. After finishing up high school in Florida, Edward attended Palm Beach Community College. He earned the nickname "judge" from a very early age, as he allegedly looked stern and "judge-like" as a baby. Judge was raised in a Christian household and remains faithful to this religion today.
Career: One of Judge's first appearances was in an episode of "Wonder Woman" in 1979. He then booked the lead role in the film "Running Scared," in which he played a US soldier. He then booked a role in the comedy film "Stripes" before taking part in the box-office flop "Pandemonium." Reinhold's real breakthrough came in 1982 with the release of "Fast Times at Ridgemont High." He appeared alongside a host of then-unknown actors, including Sean Penn, Nicholas Cage, and Forest Whitaker.
Although "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" helped put Judge on the map, his next few roles in "The Lords of Discipline" and "Gremlins" were relatively minor. It wasn't until 1984 that he took another major step forward with a supporting role in the film "Beverly Hills Cop." He played Detective Billy Rosewood, a character who becomes friends with Eddie Murphy's character.
Despite this success, Judge's career went through another lackluster period with roles in less-than-impressive films such as "Roadhouse 66," "Head Office," and "Off Beat." However, he had more luck with "Ruthless People" in 1986, a film that cemented his reputation as an actor who played the "average joe" character. He followed up with "Beverly Hills Cop II" in 1987. He then booked the lead in "Vice Versa," a film that ultimately flopped at the box office. After the failure of "Vice Versa," Reinhold admits that his "phone stopped ringing." He also admitted that he had developed a reputation for being difficult to deal with on set, and that he was very demanding. Work was hard to come by over the next few years.
However, he still managed to book a number of supporting roles in various films throughout the late 80s and early 90s, including "Rosalie Goes Shopping," "Daddy's Dyin': Who's Got the Will?," "Enid Is Sleeping," and "Zandalee." In the mid-90s, he reprised his earlier role in "Beverly Hills Cop III" and appeared in "The Santa Clause." For the later film, he played the role of Dr. Neal Miller, and he reprised this role in the various sequels.
In addition to his various film roles, Reinhold has appeared in series such as "Seinfeld" and "Into the West." Many years later, Judge appeared in the film "Swing Vote." Starting in 2003, he also began appearing as a judge of a fictional court show in "Arrested Development." He is rumored to be involved in a fourth installment of the "Beverly Hills Cop" film franchise.
Legal issues: In 2016, Judge was arrested in Dallas Love Field airport for disorderly conduct. He refused to go into a private room and go through additional screening, and he allegedly acted in a belligerent manner towards TSA workers and the police, who arrived on the scene after he caused a disturbance. As a result, Judge spent ten hours in jail and later accepted an adjudication agreement.
