Dule Hill’s Net Worth

Dule Hill's Net Worth

Dule Hill, whose first name is Karim according to Wikipedia, is a television and film actor. Do you recognize him by name? What if we told you that he played the character of Gus on the TV show “Psych”? Or that he was Charlie Young on “The West Wing?” If you weren’t familiar with his name before, then it’s probably ringing a bell now. But do you have any guess as to Dule Hill’s net worth?

Who Is Dule Hill?

According to his IMDB biography, Dule Hill was born in New Jersey in 1975. His parents are Jamaican; Dad is an entrepreneur and mom a teacher. He has one older brother.

Although he ultimately has become well-known for his acting roles on both the small and big screen, Dule Hill started out as a singer and dancer. In fact, believe it or not, he was only three years old when he joined the Marie Wildey School of Dance. Three years old!

When he was still a young child, he got the role of Savion Glover’s understudy for Broadway’s “The Tap Dance Kid.” He went on to perform that lead role for over a year when the musical did its national tour. Wikipedia reports that at age 10 he went on Jerry Lewis’s MDA telethon to tap dance, which he ended up having to do to an unexpected song played live by the orchestra because they couldn’t find his music! IMDB adds that other musicals he was in while young include “Little Rascals,” “Black & Blue,” and “Shenandoah.”

Fun fact from IMDB: Hill still enjoys tap dancing. In fact, he did so with Savion Glover in 2001 at the 32nd NAACP Image Awards show.

High School and College

Although he was doing well on stage, he was also interested in screen acting. Hill started getting jobs in commercials. Then, he appeared in his first film while still in his senior year of high school. The film was “Sugar Hill.” He played the younger version of Wesley Snipes’ character in the film.

Before that year (1993) was over, he had started attending college while at the same time appearing on Jim Henson’s Saturday morning show “CityKids.” Although he had enough success behind him to have given acting a full-time go, education was important to him, perhaps because his mom is an educator. He decided to continue studying acting at William Esper Studio, honing his craft.

But at the same time he gave himself an edge up on life by also attending Seton Hall University where he studied business finance. Whether or not you go into business for a living, knowing about money is good common sense, and it’s surely helped as Dule Hill’s net worth has grown. That said, IMDB reports that ultimately he had to make a decision about whether to stay at Seton Hall of accept the starring role in Broadway’s “Bring in Da’ Noise, Bring In Da’ Funk.” He chose the latter, leaving college during his junior year. He spent over two years in that role and it served I’m well as far as networking and accolades.

Dule Hill’s TV and Film Appearances

We already know that Dule Hill’s first film was “Sugar Hill” in 1993. But what else has he done on the big and small screens that have contributed to Dule Hill’s net worth?

IMDB shows that he had small roles on a variety of different television shows and TV movies from 1993 – 1999. Then in 1999 he was in the film “She’s All That.” Additional films quickly followed including “Men of Honor” in 2000, “Holes” in 2003, “Sexual Life” in 2004, “Edmund” in 2005, and “The Guardian” in 2006.

Dule Hill’s Big TV Roles

At the same time, though, he was making a name for himself on “The West Wing.” He played Charlie Young from 1999 – 2006. In 2001 and 2002, he and the cast won the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series. They were nominated for that award in other years as well.

Then in 2006 he started playing the role of Burton “Gus” Guster on “Psych” which was just a web series at the time. However, it was quickly picked up as a TV series and he continued to play that role for about eight years. During those years, he also made appearances in several films and shorts.

After “Psych” came to an end, Dule Hill chalked up a number of other TV roles:

  • Larry Siefert in “Ballers”
  • Albert Cobb in “Doubt”
  • Alex Williams in “Suits”
  • Marcus Duane Wainwright III in “Black Monday”
  • Mr. Manny in the “Muppet Babies” TV short

Most recently, he’s playing the role of Bill Williams in the new version of “The Wonder Years.”

Additional Movie Mentions

In addition to the movies noted above, there have been three TV movie spinoffs of “Psych.” The first was in 2017. The second in 2020. And the final is filming now. It’s called “This Is Gus” so presumably he is the main focus of this movie. Depending how that does, it could potentially add to Dule Hill’s net worth.

Dule Hill also has three other movies from 2021: “Locked Down,” “Night of the Animated Dead” (which is a voice role), and “Hypnotic.” He sure is keeping busy!

Dule Hill’s Personal Life

Dule Hill married Canadian actress Nicole Lyn in 2004. She had been in some episodes of “The West Wing.” And fun fact, according to IMDB, she also started taking dance classes at age three. They were married for about eight years, divorcing without having any children.

In 2017, Dule Hill became engaged to Jazmyn Simon. She had been on the show “Ballers” with him. She already had a daughter, who Hill adopted. In 2019, the now-married couple had a son together, Levi Dule Hill. Ecelebrityspy reports that the family lives in a 4000 square foot house. It was a 1970s house that they renovated, and you can actually see the renovation on the show “Styling Hollywood” on Netflix.

Dule Hill’s Net Worth

Okay, so we know how Dule Hill started off in life. We know about his early Broadway work and his ongoing work in TV and film. But do we know Dule Hill’s net worth? Celebrity Net Worth is typically our most accurate source for this type of information. They say that Dule Hill’s net worth is $8 million. Ecelbrityspy makes a guess that Dule Hill earned  somewhere between $200,000 and $500,000 per episode of “Psych” but we have not been able to confirm the accuracy of that guess.

Elizabeth Olsen’s Net Worth

Elizabeth Olsen's Net Worth

The Olsen family is an interesting creative family. Almost everyone knows Olsen twins Mary-Kate and Ashley. Together, and separately, those two have amassed an astounding net worth. However, we’re increasingly noticing their little sister Elizabeth. Although she’s nowhere near as famous as her big twin sisters, she’s a terrific actress in her own right. So, what is Elizabeth Olsen’s net worth?

Who Is Elizabeth Olsen?

As we’ve established, Elizabeth is little sister to famous twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. The twins first became famous playing Michelle on the original “Full House” series. Then they went on to dominate the Hollywood headlines for various positive and negative things over the years. Sister Elizabeth is three years younger than the twins. IMDB reports that she also has an older brother named Trent. Moreover, she has two younger half siblings, Jake and Courtney. Her parents divorced when Elizabeth was still in elementary school.

A Creative Family And The Start of An Acting Career

Obviously, the Olsen twins were very young when they first became known for their role on “Full House.” As their stars began to shine brighter and brighter, Elizabeth was the lesser-known little sister. However, her parents always encouraged creativity. And she had just as much interest in performing as her sisters did. According to IMDB she took ballet and singing lessons as a child. (Her mother, Jarnette, was an LA ballet dancer.) After high school, Elizabeth Olsen took classes at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts as well as a semester of study at the Moscow Art Theatre School.

Moreover, although she wasn’t as well-known as her big sisters, she started acting almost as young as they did. She got her first small gig at age 4. When her sisters were in “The Adventures of Mary-Kate and Ashley” and “How The West Was Fun”, Elizabeth appeared alongside them in small roles. By age ten, trying perhaps to get out from under her sisters’ shadows, she started auditioning for a variety of different film projects unrelated to what the twins were doing.

However, around 2004, her sisters started getting into a lot of controversy. In particular, there was stigma around sister Mary-Kate’s challenges with an eating disorder. IMDB reports that Elizabeth almost quit acting altogether at that time, desiring to remain out of the controversy spotlight. She is quoted on IMDB as saying “When I was 14 or 15, I was a really good volleyball player, so I thought, ‘Well, maybe I’ll just get a scholarship to an Ivy League school through volleyball.’ Then I quit when I decided to focus on theater.

Elizabeth Olsen’s Acting Career

After a little bit of time had passed, though, Elizabeth returned to acting. We started to see her emerge in 2011. She’s appeared in multiple movies and TV shows every year since with the notable exception of COVID-19 year 2020.

In 2011, Elizabeth acted in the films “Silent House,” “Peace, Love, and Misunderstanding,” and “Martha Marcy May Marlene.” In the latter film, she played the title star in a dramatic tale of dealing with trauma after fleeing a cult. The critics took note and she was nominated for several awards for her role.

2013 was a big year for the actress. She was in “Very Good Girls” with Dakota Fanning. She co-starred in “Oldboy”, a remake of a 2003 South Korean film. Then she also gained attention for playing Edie Parker (first wife of Jack Kerouac) in “Kill Your Darlings.” Moreover, this was the year that she graduated from the Tisch School of the Arts after six years of off and on study. Additionally, she was nominated for the BAFTA Rising Star award that year.

Elizabeth Olsen’s Avengers Roles

In 2014 she appeared in the “Godzilla” remake. Then in 2015 she joined the Marvel family, playing the role of Wanda Maximoff and the Scarlet Witch first in “Captain America” and then in “Avengers.” There have since been several additional Avengers films that she’s played key roles in. As a result, this is one of the characters she is most well known for. Certainly a decent portion of Elizabeth Olsen’s net worth comes from her relationship with Marvel. This continues with the 2022 planned release of “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.”

Elizabeth Olsen’s TV Appearances

In recent years, she’s also performed in a number of different television shows and mini-series. One of these is Avengers-related as well. She continued her role as Wanda Maximoff / The Scarlet Witch “WandaVision,” a 2021 TV mini-series. Prior to that, she had spent two years in the role of Leigh Shaw on “Sorry for Your Loss.” She is currently filming an upcoming TV mini-series called “Love and Death.”

Awards and Nominations

Acting awards and nominations don’t necessarily directly contribute to Elizabeth Olsen’s net worth. However they help establish credibility in the industry which can boost the amount an actor can ask for in future rules. As aforementioned, she was nominated for the 2013 BAFTA Rising Star award.

And she also received lots of nominations and award in 2011 for her role in “Martha Marcy May Marlene.” For example, that film earned her Best Breakthrough Performance from the Alliance of Women Film Journalists. Furthermore, she won:

  • Central Ohio Film Critics Association’s Best Actress Award
  • Chicago Film Critics Association Awards Most Promising Performer
  • Florida Film Critics Circle Awards Pauline Kael Breakout Award
  • Ghent International Film Festival Special Mention
  • Indiana Film Journalists Association, US Best Actress Award
  • Nevada Film Critics Society Best Breakthrough Performance
  • Phoenix Film Critics Society Awards Best Actress in a Leading Role as well as Breakout on Camera Award
  • Vancouver Film Critics Circle Best Actress

And that’s just for that one role. She’s received numerous other award nominations and some wins for various roles. Most recently, she won the 2021 MTV Movie + TV Awards Best Performance in a Show as well as Best Fight (shared with Kathryn Hahn) for WandaVision.

Elizabeth Olsen’s Net Worth

Although she started acting in small roles when she was just a child,. Elizabeth Olsen has really come into her own in the past decade. In particular, her relationship with Marvel has contributed a lot to Elizabeth Olsen’s net worth as well as her celebrity status.

So what is Elizabeth Olsen’s net worth? Current sources report that she’s worth $11 – $12 million. Celebrity Net Worth, typically a reliable source for this information, puts her value at $11 million. However, several other news sources, such as InStyle place her closer to $12 million.

InStyle notes that this means Elizabeth Olsen’s net worth is paltry compared to her twin sisters, who are collectively worth $500 million (which they split evenly.) Of course, the twins’ early success was a huge contributing factor. InStyle reports that they started out earning $2400 per “Full House” episode but were earning $80,000 per episode by the end of the series. They were still toddlers at the time. At 18, they took over their own entertainment business, which produced most of their own acting work, generating additional strong income.

The Olsen twins haven’t done a lot of acting as adults. Instead, they switched to the world of fashion, where they have had massive success. Their brand “Elizabeth & James” is obviously named in part after their little sister. With the twins’ fashion focus and Elizabeth’s growing acting success, she’s poised to dominate the acting scene as far as the Olsen family goes. This could mean that her net worth will rise considerably in the years to come.

The World Series of Poker Online tends to showcase the sport’s most up-and-coming talent and Justin Saliba appeared to be this year’s front-runner. Continue reading to find out how to learn from Justin Saliba.

A triumphant start 

In July, Justin Saliba achieved the unachievable to beat 188 players to win the 2021 World Series of Poker Online Event #15 $5,300 NLH High Roller and walk away with $253,800 and his first gold bracelet. In the years leading up to his triumphant win, Saliba had lifetime earnings of $171,616 spanning across two years with $163,465 accumulated in the past three months alone. He may have been making waves in the industry in the years leading up to his participation in the World Series of Poker Online, but his triumphant win has secured his position as one of the game’s most promising players in both online as well as in-person matches.

A life-long passion

As is the case with most professional poker players, Saliba’s love for poker emerged at a young age when he caught a glimpse of coverage of the World Series of Poker Main Event and the relatively short-lived scripted poker drama, Tilt. He then, naturally, sharpened his skills by participating in amateur games hosted by online casinos, such as GGPoker, and even challenging his siblings to live matches if and when he could. As a young adult, he funded his hobby by completing online surveys in exchange for $10 free-play vouchers for a number of top-rated online casinos and learned a great deal in the process. As a recent graduate, he returned to poker and began training with a number of experienced players who took him under their wing and taught him everything he needed to know as a budding professional poker player.

His professional debut

Upon realising his passion for poker, Saliba relocated to Las Vegas in 2019 where a friend encouraged him to participate in the upcoming World Series of Poker Main Event. By doing so, he uncovered a love for professional poker tournaments and delved into online events if and when he could. 2020, however, was the year that saw his career thrust to new heights by working alongside a number of big names in the online as well as live poker industry. With live poker tournaments making a triumphant return in 2021, he made the decision to participate in as many events as he could in an attempt to make a name for himself in the poker community as a whole.

An inspirational journey 

As one of the latest World Series of Poker Online winners, Saliba attributes his success to his coach, Jonathan Little, who has worked with the star since 2017 in exchange for improving his social media presence at the time. During this time, he contemplated playing poker as nothing more than a hobby but with his recent win cementing his position as one of the most promising and inspirational poker players of the past decade, his future is bright.

During this year’s version of the World Series of Poker Online tournament, Justin Saliba emerged as one of the industry’s most up-and-coming players. By analysing his stratospheric rise to fame, you can begin to understand the importance of perseverance and soldiering on despite experiencing a number of setbacks along the way.
