Robert Michael Iler is a 36 years old American professional poker player and actor who has a net worth of $12 million as of the latest reports of September 2021. He is best known for his portrayal of the fictional character A.J Soprano on the famous HBO crime drama series The Sopranos (1999 – 2007.) In Hollywood, he has made a popular name while playing a key role in different comedy and superhero movies. His fame came into the spotlight when he played a popular role in the movies like Tadpole (2002) and Dare Devil (2003.) He later got retired from acting and tuned into professional Poker playing.
Oftentimes, career switching is hard and damaging. But Iler is a prime example to prove it wrong. He accumulated a handsome fortune and got both national and international fame after switching his career to poker playing. Let’s have more insights about his career, net worth, and lifestyle along with some interesting facts about him.
How Did Robert Iler Become Rich?
By birth, Iler was gifted with an internal property of parody and mimicry. “He would mimic everyone in the family,” her mom recalls in an interview. Polishing this attribute, he started professionally acting and made his first appearance on television in 1999.
He made his debut with the widely popular crime drama series The Sopranos where he artistically portrayed the character of A.J Soprano. For his worthwhile performance, he got honored with the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance. This is where he came into the limelight and got wide fame. His subsequent acting career included Law & Order: Special Victim Unit, Oz, the Dead Zone, Four Kings, and Law and Order all the way to 2009. Nevertheless, his subsequent drama-acting career did not turn out to be as successful.
In the meantime, he also made his debut in Hollywood and made a minor and ‘supporting role’ in the films like Tadpole, Dare Devil, and the Tic Code from 1999 – 2003. These films did not become as successful as his AJ Soprano role, and he consequently got retired after a short span of four years.
Following the back-to-back ‘failures’ after The Sopranos, he moved to Las Vegas and participated in many games games – the Poker Card Game being the most prominent among them. He currently hosts the podcast named Pajama Pants in collaboration with the famous YouTube comedian Kassem G and the Sopranos co-star Jamie Linn Sigler.
To date, the 36 years former Hollywood actor continues his career as a podcast host and appears in different commercials.
What Is Robert Iler Net Worth?
As of the latest reports of September 2021, Iler has a hefty net worth of $12 million. His sources of income are the short-lived acting career and professional poker card playing. Among his acting career, The Sopranos is the most successful and highly paid drama series he has ever achieved. For his role as A, J Sopranos, he earned a projected amount of $15,000 per episode in the initial stage of the drama series. This amount was added up to $65,000 in the middle and $110,000 per episode in the final episodes. This drama series is the most relied source of his income.
The handsome actor also earns a decent amount from his appearance in different commercials. He does commercials for popular brands like Pizza Hut, AT&T, VHI, IBM, and ESPN. He gets a fair cut from these commercials and ads which ultimately add up to his ever-increasing net worth.
