According to The Hollywood Reporter, Brown will receive $250,000 per episode this coming season, along with co-stars Milo Ventimiglia (Jack), Mandy Moore (Rebecca), Chrissy Metz (Kate) and Justin Hartley (Kevin).

The main cast negotiated and will be awarded raises that will earn them $4.5 million each for the hit TV drama’s third season over 18 total episodes.

The five didn’t start out making the same amount of money, though. Metz earned $40,000 per episode during the show’s first season.

Stirling K Brown net worth

Brown, unlike newcomers such as Metz, has had years in Hollywood to build up his total net worth. He landed his first minor role in 2002 and went on to appear in shows including Supernatural, Army Wives, and The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.

He landed a starring role in This Is Us in 2016.

As of 2018, Brown is reportedly worth an estimated $4 million, according to multiple sources.

In 2018, Brown went from playing a dad and brother to portraying … another dad and brother. Except this one was related to a superhero (spoilers) and didn’t have quite the same family values as Randall Pearson and company.

He played N’Jobu, T’Challa’s uncle. Though not technically a major role, he wasn’t allowed to reveal which character he was portraying. He managed to keep his character’s identity secret from even his wife.

The film earned over $1 billion in box office sales worldwide.

‘This Is Us’ Golden Globe and Emmy Awards

In 2018, Brown won a Golden Globe award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series for his role on This Is Us.

In 2017, he won a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series.

He also shares a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series with the rest of the This Is Us cast, and won Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series that same year (2018).
