Who is Barry Van Dyke?
Born on the 31st of July 1951, in Atlanta, Georgia USA, Barry Van Dyke is a 66-year-old Caucasian actor, writer and director, perhaps best known for his co-lead role as Lieutenant Detective Steve Sloan and the son of Dr. Mark Sloan (portrayed by his father) in the crime mystery drama by Joyce Burditt entitled “Diagnosis Murder”, which ran for eight years, from 1993 to 2001. He has had a number of other contracts in the world of cinematography, too, having been active in the sometimes lucrative acting business since 1962.

Early Life and Education
After fulfilling his promise to his father, Barr began starring in his father’s show, this time entitled “The New Dick Van Dyke Show”, in which he had a number of different roles throughout the show from 1971 to 1974. For two years afterwards, Barry made no appearances on television, but in 1976, he for the first time had a role in a project that didn’t involve his father, although a minor one in the film entitled “Stalk the Wild Child”, proving he isn’t just pushed through by his family, but actually had talent. After a number of appearances in various other films and shows preceding 1993, he finally landed the role that would serve as a springboard for his career – Steve Sloan in 178 episodes of the eight-year-long aforementioned sitcom “Diagnosis Murder”. The show went on to extend the story in two subsequent feature films, entitled “Diagnosis Murder: Town Without Pity” and “Diagnosis Murder: Without Warning” chronologically, which both came out in 2002, a year after the original show had ended. He subsequently appeared as Mike Bryant in the four film franchise of “Murder 101” from 2006 to ’08, then in several TV films, and features on the big screen. Currently, Barry is working on two projects, one of which is in post-production and set to release late in 2018, while the other is completed and will come out in 2019.

What is Barry Van Dyke’s Net Worth?
Have you ever wondered how rich Barry Van Dyke is, as of early 2018? According to various authoritative sources, it has been estimated that the current total of Barry’s accumulated wealth is close to $3 million, largely aided by his numerous successes in the movie industry, the greatest contribution coming from his long-term appearance in “Diagnosis: Murder.“ As his career continues, the said amount can be expected to increase.

Concerning the physical attributes of the aspiring actor, his vital statistics are not currently known to the public, while various sources claim that his height is at 6ft 1in (1.85m), but his body weight is unknown.
Social Media Presence
Due to the major influence of social networks, it is nowadays a regular thing for active actors to nourish a close and active relationship with their fans, for the sake of increasing the popularity of the titles they’re working on, and thus their net worth. However, Barry himself doesn’t seem to be an active subscriber to this celebrity trend, as his social media presence is almost non-existent. Any Facebook account is either hidden from the public or it doesn’t exist at all, while his Twitter page has only 162 followers, and his Instagram account just 163.
