Ed Begley Jr. Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2016

Edward James Begley Jr. was born on 16 September 1949, in Los Angeles, California USA, to Allene Jeanne Sanders and Ed Begley, both actors, of Irish descent. He is an actor perhaps still best remembered for playing Dr. Victor Ehrlich in the ’80s television series “St. Elsewhere”.

A respected actor, how rich is Ed Begley? Sources state that Begley has acquired a net worth of over $5 million, as of late 2016. His wealth has largely been earned during his acting career which now spans almost 50 years.

Begley grew up in Buffalo, New York State, attending Stella Niagara Education Park Cadet School in Lewiston before his family moved to California in 1962, where he matriculated from Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks. He later enrolled at Los Angeles Valley College in North Hollywood.

Begley made his television debut in 1967, appearing in the sitcom “My Three Sons”, but then became a stand-up comedian, and an assistant cameraman on TV commercials. In the early ’70s he returned to acting, and went on to appear in numerous series during the decade, including recurring roles in “Room 222”, “Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman” and “Battlestar Galactica”. His film debut came with the 1972 Disney film “Now You See Him, Now You Don’t”, after which he landed numerous other film parts, the most notable being in “Stay Hungry” and “Blue Collar”. His net worth was at its start.

Begley’s breakthrough came in the early ’80s, with the role of Dr. Victor Ehrlich in the popular television series “St. Elsewhere”. His six-year tenure on the show earned him six Emmy nominations, significantly contributing to his popularity and to his wealth as well. In the meantime, he landed several notable film roles too, such as in “An Officer and a Gentleman”, “This Is Spinal Tap” and “The Accidental Tourist”.

The ’90s saw Begley making numerous television guest appearances, as well as taking several film parts, including in “The Pagemaster” and “Batman Forever”. In the next decade he landed recurring roles in the series “7th Heaven”, “Arrested Development” and “Six Feet Under”, and starred as Paul Weffler in the sitcom “Wednesday 9:30 (8:30 Central)” and as Dr. Jesse James in the series “Kingdom Hospital”. From 2007 to 2010 he starred along with his wife in his own green living reality television show entitled “Living with Ed”, portraying his huge passion for environmental issues. Begley’s numerous film appearances at the time included “Whatever Works”, “Pineapple Express”, “For Your Consideration” and “Recount”, to name a few. The following years were also fairly busy for the actor, as he made a number of television guest appearances, as well as film roles, which maintained his net worth.

Begley has also been active on stage, starring in several David Mamet productions, including “Cryptogram”, “Romance” and “November”. In 2003 the play called “Cesar and Ruben” was written and directed by himself, which won him a Nos Otros Award and four Valley Theater League Awards, contributing to his net worth.

His last film appearances were in the 2016 action comedy “Gostbusters” and the mocumentary “Mascots”, which both added to his net worth.

Aside from his acting career, Begley has written the books “Living Like Ed: A Guide to the Eco-Friendly Life”, and “Ed Begley Jr.’s Guide to Sustainable Living: Learning to Conserve Resources and Manage an Eco-Conscious Life”. In 2014 he released “A Vegan Survival Guide for the Holidays”, co-written with Jerry James Stone, all helping his bank account.

In his private life, Begley was married to Ingrid Taylor from 1976 to 1989; the couple has two children together. As of 2000, he has been married to actress Rachelle Carson, with whom he has one child. The actor has been involved in philanthropy. He serves on the board of a number of charitable organizations, including the Coalition for Clean Air and Green Wish.

Begley has been an ardent environmentalist, frequently sharing and preaching his environmental ideas in television shows and in public. Aside from being a vegan living in in a solar-powered home and driving an electric car, he produces and sells “Begley’s Best”, a product described as an ‘all-natural household cleaning product’, and various other eco-friendly products. He is involved in numerous environmental affiliations.

#Quote
1 [on Norman Lloyd]: Not only did I enjoy working with him, but I see him, fairly regularly, I just had dinner with him, 4 nights ago. We had dinner together at Sarah Nichols's house, his neighbor of mine and friend of his. We had a lovely time and reminisced - he's unbelievable. He's going to be 100 years old, this year, and still very active, getting around on his own. He's a force of nature, so Norman Lloyd was somebody I idolized. When I was quite young, wow James Dean is great and this is one and that. Now look at Janis Joplin, what a great voice and Jim Morrison, those people left us so young, like my point of view has change somewhere, in the late 1970s and early 1980s, saying, 'No, you idolized Jimmy Stewart, Gloria Swanson.' The people that have families and happiness and a long, economy life. You know, Norman Lloyd, he wasn't much older than me, when I did 'St. Elsewhere,' and I went 'These are my role models, now, people had a long/happy life and continued to be creative.' Those are my role models, not the people that left us, so early and I'm sorry they did, I don't mean to trifle with that, but, my role models changed from the people who had an incredible, brief spurt of creativity and life, but to people that went the distance, they became my role models at some point in my early 30s really.
2 [on his on- and off-screen chemistry with Norman Lloyd, who played Dr. Daniel Auschlander]: I worked with Norman Lloyd the actor and Norman Lloyd the director, and no one informed me better on the art of storytelling than that talented man. He is a constant inspiration, and my eternal friend.
3 [before he worked with Norman Lloyd on St. Elsewhere (1982)]: Norman directed me in a mystery show on television with Fritz Weaver, Sigourney's dad - I really liked Norman a lot and have great respect for him.
4 I'm a strong proponent of green tech for anyone who can afford it, having spent the last 40 years working toward achieving a smaller and smaller eco-impact for myself.
5 It takes less land to grow a pound of broccoli than it does a pound of beef. Less land to grow a pound of grain than a pound of beef. Less water, less energy.
6 I've been in movies with Meryl Streep, Jack Nicholson - but I was on The Simpsons (1989), and finally, in the eyes of my children, I was a star.
7 I've lived a slower and less expensive life going off the grid, and I'm happier because of it.
8 Los Angeles is a city known as much for it's sun as for its stars and it's dirty air.
9 My favorite form of transportation is walking. I live in a neighborhood where you can walk to restaurants, banks and shops.
10 One of the regular intervals of meditation in my life, believe it or not, is in my car.
11 People don't want to give up their SUVs. They don't want to turn the thermostat down in the winter and up in the summer.
12 The film 'Tapped' illustrates quite clearly how we've been getting 'soaked' for years by the bottled water industry.
13 When I was single, I was down to $100 of power a year.
14 By 1990, I went back to no gasoline; I was just riding around on my bike, taking the bus. I had a tiny little electric car that didn't go very far or very fast. People thought I'd lost my mind. Even my own family thought I'd lost my mind.
15 California has always led the way on environmental protection and always reaped the benefits, pioneering everything from catalytic convertors on cars to stationary source reduction.
16 For decades, community colleges have been the backbone of American workforce training. Because they are nimble and closely attuned to local community needs, they are inherently positioned to be influential leaders of the movement for a sustainable economy.
17 For my own health, I thought it was better to eat a plant based diet. I'm going to be 60 soon and I have boundless energy and I feel really good, so I'm all for it.
18 I bought my first electric car in 1970. Its top speed was 15 mph and it had just a 15 mile range - it was essentially a golf cart with a windshield wiper and a horn.
19 I ride my bike for transportation a great deal - occasionally I ride it for fun. But I also have a generator bike that's hooked up to my solar battery pack, so if I ride 15 minutes hard on my bike, that's enough energy to toast toast, or power my computer.
20 I started composting in 1970 by taking my food scraps out behind where I lived and burying them in a hole next to the railroad tracks - and green things started to grow there!
21 We run around so much - with the best intentions: I want to save the rain forest. I've gotta clean up the oceans. I've gotta save the dolphins. All worthy efforts, but if you're not centered and you don't have the serenity in your life you need to accomplish that task, you're not going to do a very good job.
22 As someone who has grown up living in Southern California, I know all too well about the costs and scarcities of water.
23 I can trace my environmentally-friendly lifestyle back to my childhood. My father was a conservative Republican that liked to 'conserve'.
24 I was a typical Valley teen, in smoggy Van Nuys.
25 I'm not a wealthy person because I was never a star. I was a working actor and a supporting actor.
26 If you're not buying recycled products, you're not really recycling.
27 Some would call me an environmentalist. I don't know why. I reuse the water that falls in my backyard in the winter. I reuse the trash and clippings I produce for mulch. I reuse the rain that falls on my roof, and I reuse the sun that shines on my house for energy. I guess you could call me a strategic opportunist as much as an environmentalist.
28 The environmental crisis is all a result of rushing.
29 My father also encouraged my love of nature. He urged me to become a Cub Scout, and later a Boy Scout, and I found I really liked being outdoors.
30 People are overwhelmed looking up at the Mount Everest of environmental challenges that we face. But you put one foot in front of the other and you recognize that not everyone is Sir Edmund Hillary.
