How rich is Andy Favreau? As of mid-2019, sources inform us of a net worth that is over $600,000, earned through a successful career in acting since 2011.
As he continues his career, it is expected that this wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Career Beginnings
Very limited information is available about Andy’s life prior to his career as an actor, as he hasn’t shared a lot of details regarding his family, childhood and education. It is known that he is of Jewish and Italian descent, with his family adhering to Jewish traditions.
He is likely inspired by his brother, who began pursuing a career in the entertainment industry sometime during college. Andy’s first professional acting credit came in 2011, when he was cast in the film entitled “What’s Your Number?”, a romantic comedy film starring Anna Faris and Chris Evans, based on the book entitled “20 Times a Lady” by Karyn Bosnak. While he had a very small role in the film, it helped set him up for future opportunities both on film and television.
Favreau would gain more notable roles later, when he was cast as the Beach Boys’ drummer Dennis Wilson in the television show entitled “Aquarius”, a period crime drama series which aired on NBC. It received the Critics’ Choice Television Award for Most Exciting New Series, but was still cancelled after two seasons. He went on with guest appearances in several shows, including in “NCIS” which is a police procedural following a fictional team of special agents, and is a spin-off from “JAG”, having been introduced during that show’s eighth season.
He also worked as a guest on “2 Broke Girls”, a sitcom following the lives of two friends, one of whom was raised by a billionaire while the other started out in a life of poverty. The two had different perspectives on life, but work together to raise funds to start a cupcake business. He then made a guest appearance in “Bones”, and the sitcom “The Mick” in which he appeared alongside Kaitlin Olson. One of his latest projects is in the series “Single Parents”, which airs on ABC, and is about a group of adults who must go on a journey through single parenthood.
