Harry Shearer Net Worth $65 Million

Harry Shearer was raised in Los Angeles, by his parents, Mack Shearer and Dora Warren, who were Jewish immigrants from Poland and Austria. He started earning money working for the school newspaper “Daily Bruin”, during his studies at the University of California in Los Angeles (UCLA), before he continued his education at Harvard University. Soon after, he decided to leave The University and pursue a career in the entertainment industry.

Shearer’s professional career began when he was still a child; he had his first audition at the age of four. When he was seven years old, he appeared in the Jack Benny Program, even before he made his debut film appearance in the “Abbot and Costello Go to Mars” (1953). In the same year he was also cast in the film “The Robe” (1953). Until the beginning of the 1960s, Shearer appeared in various TV series, including “Alfred Hitchcock Presents” (1957), “Leave It To Beaver” (1957), “The Reader’s Digest” (1955-1956), and several others. After he appeared in the pilot episode of “Leave It to Beaver”, his parents thought it would be better for him to leave the acting world until his childhood ended. Regardless, from 1969 to 1976, he was a member of the radio comedy group called “The Credibility Gap”, alongside Michael McKean, David Lander and Richard Beebe.

Shearer continued with acting in 1976, appearing in an episode of the TV series “Serpico”, and in 1977, he was featured in the film “American Raspberry”. In 1979, he was hired as a writer for the Saturday Night Live show, but left in 1980 after an argument with other writers and cast members; nevertheless, the show inspired him to develop more as a writer, which resulted in a film creation in 1984 entitled “The Spinal Tap”, which increased his net worth by a large margin, as the film became a major success. In 1989, Shearer was hired as a member of the animated TV series “The Simpsons”, which became a main source of his net worth, considering the longevity of the series, and that his salary is $300,000 per episode. During the show, Shearer has voiced numerous characters, including Kent Brockman, Ned Flanders, Charles Montgomery Burns, Seymour Skinner, and several others.

To speak further of his successful career in the entertainment industry, Harry has appeared in the TV series “Nixon’s The One” (2013), as President Richard Nixon, “Dawson’s Creek” (2001-2002), “Friends” (1995), and numerous others, which have contributed to his net worth. He has also made numerous film appearances, such as in “Teddy Bears’ Picnic” (2002), which he also directed, “The Simpson Movie” (2007), and “The Truman Show”, to mention a few.

Overall, Shearer has appeared in more than 160 TV and film titles, during his 60 year long career, and for his achievements, Harry has been rewarded with several prestigious awards, including the Primetime Emmy award for the Outstanding Voice-Over Performance for the “Simpsons”, and the Lifetime Achievement Award by the St. Louis International Film Festival.

During his career, Harry has also dabbled in radio programs; he has run the radio program entitled “Le Show” from 1983 until 2013 on KCRW, but then switched to KCSN. For his accomplishment in the entertainment industry, he has several Grammy Award nominations. He also received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in the radio category.

Speaking about Harry Shearer’s personal life, it is known that he has married twice. His first wife was Penelope J. Nichols, from whom he divorced in 1977. His second wife is Judith Owen, an American actress and singer; they have been married since 1993. They live in three places – Santa Monica, New Orleans and London. He is also recognized as a big supporter of several charities and foundations, such as “Dream Foundation”, “Live Earth”, “ActionAid”, etc.

1 In his lawsuit against distribution companies Vivendi and StudioCanal, he is represented by Peter Haviland at Ballard Spahr LLP.[October 17 2016].
2 Filed a $125 million lawsuit against distribution companies Vivendi and StudioCanal for fraud, breach of contract, breach of implied covenant of Good faith and Fair dealing.[October 17 2016].
3 In his lawsuit against distribution companies Vivendi and StudioCanal he is seeking $125 million in compensatory and punitive damages .[October 17 2016].

5 Performed the precursor to the Eddie Haskell character in the pilot episode of the television series Leave It to Beaver (1957). After the filming, Shearer's parents said they did not want him to be a regular in a series. Instead they wanted him to just do occasional work so that he could get a normal childhood. Shearer and his parents made the decision not to accept the role in the series if it was picked up by a television network.
6 Biography/bibliography in: "Contemporary Authors". New Revision Series, Volume 171, pages 373-377. Farmington Hills, MI: Gale Cengage Learning, 2008.
7 He's the only one of the six principal voice actors on The Simpsons (1989) not to have done a DVD commentary for the series.
8 The last primary member of the cast of The Simpsons (1989) to win an Emmy Award for his work on the show after finally taking the award home in 2014.
9 Although he was the second actor (after Chris Latta)to voice Mr. Burns on The Simpsons (1989), he was the first to utter the line "Smithers . . . release the hounds.".
10 One of three voice artists on The Simpsons (1989) to guest star on the show Friends (1994). The other two are Dan Castellaneta and Hank Azaria.
11 At 21 characters, he has the widest range of roles on The Simpsons (1989), including the maniacal Mr. Burns, local celebrity news anchor Kent Brockman and the Springfield God Squad Reverend Lovejoy and Ned Flanders.
12 Is the voice of the announcer for between-show trivia tidbits and network commercials on TV Land.
13 Appeared in This Is Spinal Tap (1984) before being cast on The Simpsons (1989). In the episode "The Otto Show," Bart and Milhouse go to a Spinal Tap concert. Shearer, as well as Michael McKean and Christopher Guest, all reprised their roles. This marked the only time on the show that a cast member reprised a film role for the series and makes Shearer the only regular cast member to have done so.
14 His middle name is Julius, which is also the first name of Dr Hibbert, a character for which he does the voice on The Simpsons (1989).

#Quote
1 [on Richard Thompson and Danny Thompson] There are two towering figures in British music by the name of Thompson. Neither of them twins (The Thompson Twins).
2 I have to say about [The Simpsons]: Something that I've learned from my six years of psychoanalysis, which is one mark of adulthood is that you can hold two conflicting emotions about the same thing at the same time, two things can be true at the same time. So it is true that, as an actor on an insanely successful TV series, I am, by any standard of the human species, obscenely overpaid. It is also true that, as an actor on one of the most insanely successful television series of all time, I am getting royally screwed. Both things are true! [...] It's nobody's fault, it's what happens when you think you know what you want and you are determined to get it.
3 I write about broadcast indecency with something of a pedigree. Although it's not widely known - since the comedy group I was part of was not widely known - I was party to the first broadcast utterance of the word 'twat.'
4 [criticizing the decline in quality of The Simpsons (1989)] I rate the last three seasons as among the worst, so Season 4 looks very good to me now.
5 [asked how many characters on The Simpsons (1989) he voices] I think I do about 12 regular characters but I've been able to pad the resume with God, The Devil and Hitler.
6 [on which character in The Simpsons (1989) is hardest to voice] Burns requires lots of tea and honey.
7 If absolute power corrupts absolutely, does absolute powerlessness make you pure?
