Doug Hutcheson Net Worth is $3 Million (as of 2019)
As for the day, Doug Hutcheson net worth is estimated at $3 million. He is best known for portraying dark, antagonistic and even sadistic characters such as Obie Jameson on The Chocolate War, Sproles in Fresh Horses and Officer Percy Wetmore on The Green Mile. But above it all, Percy is known for marrying a 16-year-old country singer Courtney Stodden, at the time when he was 51. Sounds like a juicy story, doesn’t it? Well, it really is, thus in this article we are going to talk not only about the sources of Doug Hutchison net worth, but also about his personal relationships with the singer, who is 34 years his junior.
|Net Worth:||$3 Million|
Doug started his professional career in 1988, appearing in Fresh Horses. The coming of age drama film wasn’t a big commercial success, grossing only $6.6 million, but at least some of the movie critics really saw some charm in it. For example Michael Wilmington from Los Angeles Times wrote that due to the exceptional talent of cinematographer Fred Murphy the movie had “a very distinctive look: moody and poetic, grainy and wistful, drenched with a sad, faraway, forget-me-not drizzle of passion and regrets.”. Following this debut the actor has appeared in variety of films, such as The Lawnmower Man, A Time To Kill, Batman & Robin. In the late 1990s Doug landed a role in what became a real box-office hit and critical success, fantasy drama film The Green Mile. The movie grossed more than $290 million on a budget of $60 million, was nominated for Academy Award for the Best Picture and added a considerable sum to Doug Hutcheson net worth. But more importantly, it garnered him a nomination for Satellite Award for Best Supporting Actor – Motion Picture. Most recently (in the period 2008-2009), Doug has filmed for the movies Punisher: War Zone, Days of Wrath and Give ’em Hell, Malone.
While filming for movies, Hutcheson has also had some reoccurring roles on television series. He has appeared on a couple of episodes of The X-Files and The Practice, 9 episodes of Kidnapped and 4 episodes of Lie to Me. Unfortunately for him, since the year 2011 Doug‘s career has been stagnating: he did not appear on any movies or television series, except the appearance as himself on reality television show Couples Therapy, but I don’t think this really counts. And how come his career got stuck in a stalemate? I don‘t think this is a coincidence that Hutchison has not been able to get a role since he married a 16-year-old, who used to be his student at the acting class. The popular reaction to their marriage was fiercely negative: not only the actor was labeled „pedophile“, he has also received death threats. So unless he finds a way to clean-up his image, I don‘t think that Doug Hutcheson net worth will ever grow again.
