About Optic Nadeshot

Optic Nadeshot, as stated previously, is a professional gamer who has been able to make his way to the top of the gaming community. What made Nadeshot so successful was the rise of competitive gaming.

The gaming professional got into competitive gaming at just the right time. Although it is a relatively new concept, he was able to capitalize on it quickly. He began as a competitive amateur playing Halo 2 and, by the time he was 16, he was making his professional gaming debut playing Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, where he thrived.

By June 2010, Haag became a member of Optic Gaming, a community for professional gamers. He took the role of President of Optic Gaming for one year. During his time as an active member of the Optic community, he focused on the Call of Duty games. Each COD game that has been released has been played (and conquered) by Nadeshot.

100 Thieves

In 2015, Nadeshot left Optic Gaming to pursue other opportunities, namely 100 Thieves. He founded 100 Thieves in April 2016. Now, it is a multi-million dollar organization that is made up of some of the world’s best players.

There are teams within 100 Thieves playing popular games such as Fornite, Clash Royale, League of Legends, and Call of Duty. Hundred Thieves has been able to get sponsorship from large companies like Rocket Mortgage. Not to mention, the Cleveland Cavaliers Dan Gilbert invested millions into the organization.

Founding and managing 100 Thieves made Nadeshot one of the most – if not the most – influential people in gaming today. So, what has all of this done for Optic Nadeshot’s net worth?

Nadeshot really made the best decision of his career when he decided to focus his time on the Call of Duty series. COD has become one of the most famous video games in the world. Gamers have logged millions of hours playing the game, making Haag’s skills coveted. He pulls in revenue from his Youtube channel, which has practically 3 million subscribers, as well as cash prizes from competitions in which he participates in throughout the world.

Cash isn’t the only thing Nadeshot is raking in either. He is often times showered with gifts when he goes to gaming conferences. Some of his “perks” include cars and free hotel stays while he’s in the area. Many of the sponsoring companies offer the pro gamer VIP treatment.

As mentioned above, Nadeshot stepped down from the President seat of OpTic Gaming but did not disappear from the world of gaming. He went on to manage 100 Thieves, a professional American gaming organization. This organization, located in Los Angeles, has partnered with companies like Rocket Mortgage, to hold large-scale competitions. However, there is no information on how that may have impacted his net worth in recent years.

Haag’s skills aren’t limited to gaming either. He published a book called OpTic Gaming: The Making of eSports Champions. It has been relatively popular among gamers.

As far as future plans, he still hopes to become a full-time video game content creator. So, instead of playing against Nadeshot you may be playing a game created by the famed gamer in the years to come.

Tom Hardy will be appearing on the big screen once again this weekend in the highly-anticipated film Venom. In fact, many of the films he’s appeared in have done really well. So, what has all that success done for Tom Hardy’s net worth?

About Tom Hardy

Edward Thomas Hardy was born in Hammersmith, London in September 1977. He was an only child and always had a love for acting. Hardy nurtured this love by studying at the Richmond Drama School.

He got his start by winning The Big Breakfast’s Find Me a Supermodel competition in 1998. After a brief contract with Models One, he joined the Drama Centre London. However, he was taken out of the acting program early after winning the part of U.S. Army Private John Janovec in the HBO-BBC miniseries Band of Brothers. 

Many people don’t know that during this time Hardy was also a rapper and hip-hop producer. He worked with his friend Edward Tracy and the pair produced a mixtape in 1999 called Falling On Your Arse. The mixtape remained unreleased until 2018.

Hardy made his film debut in the hit war thriller Black Hawk Down in 2001. The following year he gained international exposure for his role in Star Trek: Nemesis. In 2003, he appeared in the motion picture Dot the i, as well as a couple of other films in the United Kingdom. He was awarded the 2003 London Evening Standard Theatre Award for Outstanding Newcomer for performances at the Royal Court Theatre and Hampstead Theatre.

He continued to work in the theater and on BBC shows for years. In 2011, he starred in the film Warrior (September 2011) and the movie was a hit. He then appeared in the 2012 film The Dark Knight Rises as the supervillain Bane.

You may have also seen him in the BBC series Peaky Blinders since his appearance in Batman. He also landed the major role in the 2015 adaptation of Mad Max. Hardy also appeared in the award-winning thriller The Revenant alongside Leonardo Dicaprio. In fact, he won his first Academy Award for his role in the film.

Now, Hardy has landed the lead role in Venom as Eddie Brock. And, in 2019, he’s slated to star in the Al Capone biopic Fonzo. 

Tom Hardy’s Net Worth

If you’re wondering about Tom Hardy’s net worth after such a successful career, you’re not alone. His net worth has reached an estimated $30 million. There isn’t much known about his annual learnings, simply because he isn’t always on the big screen. Most of his earnings have been through theater and BBC productions.

Gross earnings for his major films are listed below.

  • Inception (2010): $292.6 million
  • Warrior (2011): $13.7 million
  • Lawless (2012): $37.4 million
  • Dark Knight Rises (2012): $448 million
  • Legend (2015): $1.8 million
  • Mad Max Fury Road (2015): $154 million
  • The Revenant (2015): $183.6 million
  • Dunkirk (2017): $190 million

It is important to note Hardy only made a fraction of the earnings from the films listed above. However, he does own an Audi R8 Spyder valued at $160,000. Hardy also recently moved to a $4.6 million home in Southwest London. He was forced to move due to threats from an enthusiastic fan/stalker.

Outside of his earnings here, Hardy hasn’t actively endorsed any brands. He is constantly looking for new ways to expand his acting career on stage and on the big screen.

There is no telling how Venom may impact his overall net worth, but many fans are optimistic. One thing is for sure, Hardy isn’t going anywhere any time soon. He plans on acting for years to come.

Don’t Laugh! Kevin Hart’s Net Worth Is Astonishing

Kevin Hart's net worth

Despite his short stature, Kevin Hart has had a huge career. From standup to acting to producing, he has done it all. What has all of this success done for Kevin Hart’s net worth?

About Kevin Hart

Hart was born in Philadelphia in July 1979. He grew up in a semi-broken home where his father was addicted to cocaine and was in-and-out of jail throughout Hart’s childhood. This led him to use comedy as a way to cope with his life at home.

He graduated from George Washington High School and briefly attended community college before moving to New York City. His stay in NYC was short, however, and he soon moved to Brockton, Massachusetts. In Brockton, he found a job selling shoes.

The comedian’s first gig was at The Laff House in Philly. He made his debut under the name Lil Kev. This first appearance was a bust and he was actually booed off stage multiple times. He decided to try out the comedy scene in Massachusetts, where he fared better.

Hart didn’t take to the stage immediately. It took time for him to develop a style. He attempted to imitate idols of his, like Chris Tucker but found speaking about his own life experiences served him better in the spotlight.

He began touring in 2009 with his act I’m a Grown Little Man. In the following years, he continued touring with Seriously Funny (2010), Laugh at My Pain (2011), and Let Me Explain (2013). His 2011 act grossed over $15 million, making it one of the year’s top-selling comedy tours. Then, in 2015, he embarked on yet another tour with his act What Now?

Hart’s Film and Television Career

Although his standup career really took off, Hart hasn’t made the bulk of his money on stage. He made his film debut in Paper Soldiers. After that, he was able to gain further recognition through larger roles in popular films such as Get Hard, Scary Movie, This is the End, Ride Along, Soul Plane, Little Fockers, The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Think Like a Man, and Death at a Funeral. And, more recently, he appeared in the 2018 Jumanji remake.

Hart co-created the television show Real Husbands of Hollywood with Chris Spencer in 2013. Hart plays himself in the show alongside Nelly, Robin Thicke, and Nick Cannon.

In addition to his work on stage on screen, Hart has launched a game available via iTunes called Little Jumpman. He is also largely active on social media and YouTube, opening doors for additional income through those channels as well.

He has also hosted award shows such as the BET Awards. Hart has also hosted Saturday Night Live three times and also hosted the Comedy Central Roast of Justin Beiber. With all of this publicity and hard work, his wealth has to be huge, right?

Kevin Hart’s Net Worth

You may be floored when you find out Kevin Hart’s net worth actually sits around $120 million. Most of his earnings have stemmed from his comedy tours as well as his growing career as an actor. His median annual salary sits around $2.25 million per year.

Currently, tickets for The Irresponsible Tour (2018) range from $55 to $190+ each. Although the venue does get a cut of that, Hart is selling out most of his shows and will undoubtedly make a pretty penny from that. As mentioned previously, Hart’s gross earnings from Laugh at My Pain were $15 million. So, depending on how well his newest tour goes, he could raise his net worth another couple million before the year is over.

On top of his standup career, Hart is making bank at the box office too. For his role in Think Like a Man, he was only initially paid $500,000. However, after the movie was a complete success, he got a $10 million bonus in 2013. Over the past 10 years, his films have grossed more than $1.5 billion at the box office.

After Think Like a Man, Hart’s yearly earnings began to pick up significantly. In 2014, he is estimated to have earned $14 million and $28.5 million in 2015. His highest-earning year so far is 2016, where he raked in an astounding $87.5 million, making him the highest-paid comedian in the world. The second place highest-earning comedian, Jerry Seinfeld, only took in $43.5 million, which is significantly less than Hart.

In addition to his earnings on the big screen and stage, Hart is able to earn additional income through lucrative endorsements with companies like Nike, H&M, Hyundai, and Foot Locker. The Nike deal alone earned him an additional $8-$10 million. It is estimated that of the $32 million he made in 2017, 20% of stemmed from partnerships like the one he has with Nike and Tommy John.

Hart is also known to take to his social media channels to further promote brands and projects he’s working with. With more than 62.4 million followers, Hart is definitely sought after in this regard as well.

Additional Earnings and Assets

Many people don’t know that Kevin Hart also owns his own business on top of all his other work. The Funny Business Agency is something Hart and many other comedians have a huge hand in. It is designed to help up-and-coming comedians get booked and find their way to the spotlight. Through the agency, comedians are able to get help landing gigs. There is no data available currently about what the company earns each year.

More recently, Hart has teamed up with Booking.com. He designed a 268-square-foot tiny home that will be rented out of Elizabethton, Pa. for $175 a night. Although there’s no information about what he stands to earn from the deal (outside of additional publicity), it will likely add to his overall wealth in the long-run.

Some of Hart’s assets definitely contribute to his $120 million net worth. Namely, his car collection is worth a pretty penny. Hart has loved cars since he was a kid and now has the collection to prove it. He owns a Range Rover supercharger ($95,125), Mercedes Benz SLS AMG ($300,000), a Mercedes-Benz G63 ($150,000), and a custom Ford Explorer ($30,000). Hart spent two years restoring a 1967 Mustang he calls Eleanor.

He also owns a $2 million home in Tarzana, California, where he lives with his wife Eniko and their son, Enzo. Hart also has two children from a previous marriage to comedian Torrei.
