What Movies And TV Shows Has Ike Barinholtz Been In And What Is His Net Worth?
In Hollywood, there are plenty of multihyphenates. Some are well-known, and others are more behind the scenes. Ike Barinholtz is one of those actors who has skated under the radar but trust us — you’re a fan of his work. The comedic writer, actor, director, and producer has been a part of many major projects. Here’s what you know him from, a little about his personal life, and his net worth.
Barinholtz got his start in sketch comedy
Like many comedic actors out there, Barinholtz started off as a straight-up comedian. He debuted on the small screen in MADtv, as one of the show’s cast members during Seasons 8-12. Many of the actors he worked with on the show, including Jordan Peele, would play a part in his career moving forward.
He rose to prominence with his popular show
After recurring in series such as The League and Eastbound & Down, Barinholtz joined The Mindy Project as a writer and executive story editor. He also played the part of Nurse Morgan Tookers, Mindy Lahiri’s strange yet loyal best friend.
Barinholtz’s relationship with creator and star Mindy Kaling has continued since the series came to an end in 2017. He played a role in her first film, Late Night, which premieres on June 7, 2019, on Amazon Prime.
Barinholtz recently delved into directing
Being a comedian, Barinholtz has been writing for the majority of his career. But he decided to step behind the camera in another fashion with his 2018 film, The Oath, which he wrote, directed, produced, and starred in. The comedy features Barinholtz and Tiffany Haddish as a couple who must survive Thanksgiving with his conservative family after the president asks citizens to sign a loyalty oath.
In addition to being a poignant comedy for the time, the flick featured many more hilarious comedians, including Barinholtz’s real-life brother, Jon Barinholtz, who played his on-screen sibling. The other Barinholtz recurs on the comedy Superstore.
Here’s what else he’s has been up to lately
Like many comedians in his league, Barinholtz keeps himself very busy. He has appeared in popular movies such as Neighbors, Suicide Squad, and The Disaster Artist. Barinholtz also has made guest appearances in TV series such as Married, Friends From College, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
Recently, Barinholtz returned to his live performing roots. He played Mike Stivic, the role originated by Rob Reiner, in an ABC special titled Live in Front of a Studio Audience: Norman Lear’s All in the Family and The Jefferson.
What is Barinholtz’s net worth?
Though Barinholtz has a lot on his plate, his role in The Oath was one of very few in which he portrayed the leading man. Because of this, and because he spends nearly as much time behind the camera as in front of it, he is thought to be worth approximately $400 thousand, according to Celebrity Net Worth. Still, there is a lot of potential from this hilarious comedic mind in the future, so stay tuned.
