For The Office cast, net worth increases due to the show’s popularity were an inevitability. For nine seasons, it reigned as one of the most popular sitcoms on TV. And it only seems to have grown more popular in the years since it ended. The beloved series has also held the title of Netflix’s most-watched show for several years and wracked up billions of viewing hours for the streaming giant.
Fans were less than thrilled when The Office left Netflix. However, they’ve had more opportunities than ever to connect with the stars of their favorite show through social platforms like Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and the Office Ladies podcast.
Most of the show’s cast has stayed busy since The Office ended. Several cast members went on to star in their own sitcoms, some have had various TV and movie roles, and others have worked behind the camera, continuing to grow in both their careers and their net worth. Here are answers to some burning questions about them.
Steve Carell’s net worth
Unlike Michael Scott, Steve Carell need not worry about declaring bankruptcy. His net worth (according to Celebrity Net Worth) is estimated to be about $80 million. Carell was a huge hit as Michael Scott on The Office, and he’s had a very successful career overall. The comedic actor has also starred in films like Anchorman, The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Despicable Me, and Crazy, Stupid, Love.
In 2010, TV Guide reported that Carell was making about $300,000 per episode for The Office, which is about $7.8 million per season. The report came out ahead of Season 7, and it’s unclear how long Carell was at this salary.
John Krasinski’s net worth
Big Tuna himself is doing quite well too. John Krasinski’s net worth is currently estimated to be around $80 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. Outside of The Office, Krasinski has directed and starred in the widely popular films A Quiet Place and its sequel A Quiet Place Part II and he also plays the titular character in the Amazon Prime Video series Jack Ryan.
Entertainment Weekly reported in 2007 that Krasinski was paid $20,000 per episode for the first few seasons of The Office but had his salary bumped up to $100,000 per episode by Season 4. This would be somewhere between $1.9 million to $2.9 million per season depending on the number of episodes. It’s unclear whether he got a pay increase from there.
Jenna Fischer’s net worth
Pam Beesly noted in one Season 7 episode that she was making $41,000 a year working at Dunder Mifflin. In real life, The Office main cast member Jenna Fischer has a net worth of about $16 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. Outside of the hit series, Fischer has had roles in comedies like Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story and Hall Pass. She starred on the ABC sitcom Splitting Up Together.
It sounds like Fischer was paid exactly the same salary as Krasinski. According to Entertainment Weekly, she, too, started off at $20,000 per episode and eventually received a raise, earning $100,000 per episode. It’s unclear whether Fischer got a raise beyond Season 4. In 2020, she launched the Office Ladies podcast with co-star Angela Kinsley.
Rainn Wilson’s net worth
For an assistant to the regional manager, Rainn Wilson has been quite successful. Wilson is estimated to be worth approximately $14 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. Outside of The Office, Wilson has starred in several big movies including Super, directed by James Gunn. He also had a major role in the shark blockbuster The Meg, playing the billionaire who funds the deep-sea expedition. Wilson recurred in the popular CBS sitcom, Mom, playing Allison Janney’s character’s therapist.
Mindy Kaling’s net worth
Mindy Kaling did not just star as Kelly Kapoor on The Office; she was also one of the show’s writers and executive producers. Kaling has had an extraordinary amount of success outside of The Office, starring in and creating The Mindy Project and having roles in films like A Wrinkle in Time and Ocean’s Eight. She is estimated to be worth $35 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
Ellie Kemper’s net worth
Ellie Kemper was a latecomer to The Office. She joined the series as receptionist Erin Hannon in Season 5. She is estimated to be worth about $9 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. After The Office, Kemper starred in her own sitcom, Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, which earned her multiple Emmy nominations.
Ed Helms’ net worth
Ed Helms joined The Office several seasons in as Andy Bernard. He quickly becoming a fan favorite and then slowly devolving into one of the absolute worst characters on the show.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Helms is worth approximately $25 million. He was already a successful actor before joining The Office, having been a correspondent on The Daily Show. But his career really took off after he starred in The Hangover while The Office was still on the air.
B.J. Novak’s net worth
Like Kaling, B.J. Novak was not just one of The Office‘s stars; he also wrote and produced the series. His net worth is estimated to be about $10 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. While The Office was still on the air, Novak landed a major movie role when he starred as one of the titular “basterds” in Inglourious Basterds. Novak has also had roles in movies like Saving Mr. Banks and The Founder.
Angela Kinsey’s net worth
Angela Kinsey, who played cat lady extraordinaire Angela Martin on the show, is estimated to be worth $12 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. Although The Office was her first major acting role, Kinsey went on to appear in movies like Furry Vengeance and shows like Fresh off the Boat. She was also a series regular on the recent shows The Hotwives of Orlando and Haters Back Off. Now, Kinsey is a co-host of the Office Ladies podcast with Fischer.
Brian Baumgartner’s net worth
After playing Kevin Malone for nine seasons of The Office, Celebrity Net Worth approximates cast member Brian Baumgartner’s net worth as about $10 million. Baumgartner has had one-off roles on a wide variety of TV shows, including Disjointed, Life in Pieces, Scream Queens, The Goldbergs, Chicago Fire, Criminal Minds, Mike & Molly, Hot in Cleveland, and Adventure Time.
Leslie David Baker’s net worth
Leslie David Baker’s net worth is reportedly $4 million, estimates Celebrity Net Worth. Baker continued to work regularly his role as crossword-puzzle genius Stanley ended. He lent his voice to Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, and he appeared in episodes of shows like Life in Pieces, Scorpion, and Key & Peele. He also had a nine-episode role on the CMT series Still the King. Baker also appeared in the Melissa McCarthy comedy The Happytime Murders.
Oscar Nuñez’s net worth
Oscar Nuñez played Oscar Martinez on The Office. He is worth about $5 million, writes Celebrity Net Worth. Nuñez has had roles on many TV shows including Shameless, iZombie, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Life in Pieces, New Girl, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and more. He also had a regular role on the TBS comedy People of Earth. Although Nuñez has mainly stuck with television, he has had several notable movie roles including in The 33 and Baywatch.
Creed Bratton’s net worth
It sounds like the off-screen Creed Bratton is not too different from the on-screen one, except for, hopefully, all the murders and other crimes that the fictional one has clearly committed. Another difference is that the real Creed is worth $3 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
Prior to The Office, Bratton was a member of the rock band The Grass Roots, and has since had a solo music career. His real name is William Charles Schneider, the name of the person Creed says he always transfers his debts to in Season 4.
Phyllis Smith’s net worth
The Office cast member Phyllis Smith’s net worth is estimated to be about $4 million, writes Celebrity Net Worth. Just two years after The Office ended, Smith (who portrayed Phyllis Lapin-Vance) landed a major role as Sadness in the hit Pixar film Inside Out. She also had a regular role on the Netflix series The OA.
Paul Lieberstein’s net worth
Actor Paul Lieberstein is another one of The Office‘s stars who had a bigger role off-screen than you might have realized. In addition to playing Toby Flenderson, he was also one of the show’s writers and producers, and he was the series’ showrunner from Season 5 through Season 8.
So it makes sense that, despite Toby not being one of The Office‘s main characters, Celebrity Net Worth estimates Lieberstein’s net worth is around $14 million — a fact that would likely make Michael Scott furious. Lieberstein has also directed episodes of The Newsroom and Ghosted and appeared in shows like People of Earth.
Kate Flannery’s net worth
Kate Flannery is estimated to be worth about $2 million, writes Celebrity Net Worth. Outside of playing Meredith in The Office, you may have seen Flannery in episodes of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Kevin (Probably) Saves the World, and New Girl. She also reunited with her former co-star Wilson for a small role in the 2014 movie Cooties.
