John Astin is an American actor with a net worth of $3 million. John Astin acquired his net worth through portraying mainly wacky and eccentric characters on prolific television programs. After making a Broadway debut as an understudy in Major Barbara and providing his voice to various TV commercials, Astin's breakthrough role was in the 1961 film, West Side Story. With the help of actor Tony Randall, Astin began to appear in TV comedy shows in the 1960s: he starred in his most memorable role, as Gomez Addams in the original version of The Addams Family. In the new version, Astin took on the role of Grandpapa Addams. Astin was a regular in other popular TV series - he appeared in Batman as Riddler. Astin also appeared as a sheriff in Murder, She Wrote and he had a reoccurring role in the 1980s sitcom Night Court. Astin's acting hasn't gone unnoticed - he received an Emmy nomination for providing his voice of Uncle Gomez in the cartoon version of The Addams Family. He also received an Academy nomination for producing and directing his film called Prelude. In recent years, the veteran actor shows no sign of slowing down: he currently teaches method acting and directing at the Johns Hopkins University.
