In 2016 it looked like the actor’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Tuesday (January 22) that Holbrook is the highest-paid actor in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between December 2017 and December 2018, a nearly $60 million lead over his closest competition.

The American actor has an estimated net worth of $275 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Holbrook Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Cleveland Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderholbrook - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Hal) and a fashion line called “Hal Holbrook Seduction”.
