Judy Greer's net worth

Judy Greer is one of those actresses that you have seen a million times but don’t necessarily remember her name. She’s been in a plethora of hit films and voiced characters for popular shows. Most recently, she took to the big screen again in Halloween (2018). How has this success impacted Judy Greer’s net worth?

About Judy Greer

Greer was born Judith Therese Evans in Detriot in 1975. Her mother was a hospital administrator and her father was a mechanical engineer. She was raised Roman Catholic and grew up in Redford Township. After graduating high school, she attended The Theatre School at DePaul University and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1997.

You may have noticed that Greer does not use her father’s name on stage. This is simply because there were already a number of Judy Evans in the spotlight and she wanted to make a name for herself. Her mother’s maiden name, Greer, allowed her to be one-of-a-kind when auditioning.

The actress made her debut in the 1998 horror film Stricken. She played a college student who fell victim to a fatal prank. This role was followed by similar small roles in films such as Kissing a Fool, Jawbreaker, What Women Want, The Village, 27 Dresses, 13 Going on 30, and The Wedding Planner. 

Greer has also made guest appearances on popular television shows like Modern Family, The Big Bang Theory, and How I Met Your Mother. However, she’s garnered most of her TV attention through her work as a voice actor in the hit animated series Archer. Greer voices Cheryl on the show.

More recently, she co-starred in Tomorrowland, Jurassic World, and Ant-Man (and its sequel)She reprised her role as Cornelia in War for the Planet of the Apes. Greer has also provided the voice for a character in Ask the StoryBots and StoryBots Super Songs on Netflix.

Just last week, yet another film starring Greer hit the big screen. She played the daughter of Laurie Strode in the latest Halloween film. Many people are saying it is a relatively rare opportunity to see Greer really shine in the spotlight. However, she’s definitely seen a fair amount of success in her career. So, what has that done for her finances?

Judy Greer’s Net Worth

It is estimated that Judy Greer’s net worth sits around $5 million. The bulk of her earnings have stemmed from her work as an actress directly.

Because she’s worked on a number of sitcoms and television shows, Greer has been able to make a steady income. For many of these, you get paid a flat fee per episode. On Arrested Developmentshe made about $175,000 per episode she was in.

Something that makes Greer a bit unique is that she and her husband have been married since 2011. However, the couple only just moved in together in September 2018. “Our married life is a little weird,” she said. “He had his house and I had mine. We spent our nights together back and forth.”

The Los Angeles abode is worth millions and attributes to her overall net worth. Outside of her assets and earnings as an actress, Greer has also been able to earn some cash through endorsements. Her most profitable endorsement so far being her work promoting Hilton Garden.

All in all, Greer has had a successful career and has accrued quite a bit of money as a result. It will be interesting to see how she continues to expand in the years to come.

What is Gamer Optic Nadeshot’s Net Worth?

Optic Nadeshot's net worth
We all know someone who plays video games so much they could make a living doing so but how many people actually make a living that way?

Matthew Haag, better known as Optic Nadeshot, got his start playing his favorite game, Call of Duty. In fact, he’s been able to become a millionaire doing so! So, what is Optic Nadeshot’s net worth and how did he earn so much money gaming?

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?

What is Optic Nadeshot’s Net Worth?

Optic Nadeshot's net worthOptic Nadeshot’s net worth sits at about $2 million. He is pulling in about $1 million per year and most of it is from his competitive gaming career. The average 24-year-old is lucky to make five figures a year, let alone seven!

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.
