Canadian American actor, producer, author, and activist, Michael J. Fox has an estimated net worth of $65 million.
The son of a Canadian military career officer, actor Michael J. Fox made his television debut in Vancouver at the age of 15. Three years later, he moved to the U.S., living in spartan conditions until he was able to get his green card. Things started breaking for Fox in 1980, when he made his simultaneous American TV and movie bow, winning a regular role on the weekly series Palmerstown, U.S.A. and a supporting part in the theatrical film Midnight Madness. Previously billed as Michael Fox, the actor was compelled by the Screen Actors Guild to add the “J” to his name to avoid confusion with an older character actor who went by the same name. At 5’4″, the baby-faced Fox was able to play adolescents and teenagers well into his twenties; during the early stages of his career, however, his height lost him as many roles as he won.
In 1999, the diminutive actor lent his talents to another wee character, voicing the title role of Stuart Little for the film adaptation of E.B. White’s beloved children’s book about a walking, talking mouse. Married to actress Tracy Pollan since 1988 — she played his long-time girl friend on Family Ties — Fox credited her with helping him survive his battle with Parkinson’s Disease, with which he was diagnosed in 1991.
