Blair Underwood Net Worth is $8 Million (as of 2020)
As for the day, Blair Underwood net worth stands at $8 million dollars. This sum is much smaller than the fortunes of the richest black actors, such as Tyler Perry (with $400 million) and Will Smith (with $200 million), but it is still impressive. In fact, back in 2012, when Blair Underwood net worth was even more modest than it is today (a couple of years ago the actor had $6 million in his disposal) he was named as the 30th most lucrative black actor in the world! Blair has earned his fortunes during the nearly 30-year-long career. And I could bet that if you asked Underwood what makes him more proud: the fact that he has earned $8 million or that he has managed to stay in business for 30 years, he would point to the later. A few years ago the he said: „To be still standing 20 years in this business is a great feeling, I can’t even tell you.“ I assume today he is feeling even greater!

So we all know that Blair has earned his fortunes appearing in various films and television series. In addition to this, he has been working as a voice actor: „ I guess I’ve done about 5 or 6 audio books in the past and I do the animated voice for a show called Fatherhood on Nickelodeon“- he’s said. But how exactly his career started? What were his most significant roles?
The future millionaire has made a debut on both movies and television during the same year, 1985. Talking about his career on television (which was way more successful than his ventures in movies), it all started with a small role in Knight Rider. Following this, the struggling actor landed short stints on One Life to Live and Downtown. Blair Underwood net worth started to grow as he joined the regular cast of popular legal drama series L.A. Law, which ran from 1986 to 1994. Blair started working during the second season and remained at the show till it was canceled. In L.A Law Underwood portrayed Jonathan Rollins, headstrong attorney. I find it funny that in the early 2000 there was a period where Blair was cast to portray three characters with a doctoral degree in a row: Dr. Ben Turner in City of Angels, Dr. Robert Leeds in Sex and the City and Dr. Arthur Bindlebeep in Fatherhood (this was a voice role). And it seems like Underwood is actually great at portraying highly educated men, because those were some of his most critically aclaimed roles! For excample, the performance in City of Angeles has garnered Blair an Image Award for Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series. Needless to say, this role has also increased Blair Underwood net worth!
