Dennis Haysbert Net Worth is $14 Million (as of 2020)
Dennis Haysbert net worth is currently estimated at $12 million dollars. During this career, which started in the late 1970s he has been extremely active on both movies and television, eventually earning 111 credits. This might seem a right time to stop, just because 111 is a pretty beautiful and memorable number. But I don’t think we are going to hear about Dennis’ retirement in the foreseeable future. Just a couple of months into his 60s, Dennis is still extremely active. This year alone he has featured on three movies, Life of a King, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For and Men, Women & Children. He also voiced a character on Mr. Peabody & Sherman. His working schedule on television has not been as intensive lately, but the actor did recently feature on one of the episodes of television series The Boondocks. Having this in mind, it is not surprising that Dennis Haysbert net worth is still on the rise. But let‘s look at his career from the beginning.

According to Haysbert, he has known he wants to be an actor ever since he was 10 years old. But what helped him to make the final decision and freed him of any doubts concerning the career choice was a short conversation with his brother. Once he asked Dennis: ‘What do you want to do?’ And he replied, ‘Well, I want to be an actor.’ ‘Where do you want to do it? Can you do it from here?’ he continued asking. And when Haysbert answered ‘No, not really’ his brothers advice was pretty straightforward: ‘Well, get the hell out of here then because tomorrow’s not promised.’ Maybe these words would not have had such a profound effect on Dennis, if it was not for a devastating fact that at the time they had this conversation his brother was lying in his death-bed. He lost the battle to cancer soon after. We could say that in the longer run his brother’s advice boosted Dennis Haysbert net worth to millions of dollars, the fortune he would hardly have gained otherwise. But it actually did much more than this. It gave him courage and determination to pursue his dreams without waiting for some lucky chance or opportunity to become available in the future. Because the future may not exist.
Haysbert made his television debut appearing on television series Lou Grant in 1978. Ten years later he ascended to stardom with a movie Major League, which grossed $50 million on a budget of $11 million. Later in his career the actor appeared in the leading roles in the sequels of this comedy film: Major League II and Major League: Back to the Minors. Another source of Dennis Haysbert net worth just I have to mention was on television series 24.
