The net worth of John Ratzenberger, an American actor, is $50 million. In the long-running sitcom “Cheers,” John Ratzenberger is most known for his character as snobbish bar fly Cliff. Additionally, he’s an active investor, and he’s provided his voice for a number of Pixar animated features. His voice has appeared in all of Pixar’s current films.
On April 6, 1947, John Ratzenberger was born in Bridgeport, Connecticut. Remington Arms employed his mother while Texaco truck driver Dezso was his father. He has Austrian, Hungarian, and Polish roots. She attended St. Ann’s School in Bridgeport and Sacred Heart University in Fairfield (both located in Connecticut). As a tractor operator at Woodstock in 1969, John Ratzenberger was a part of the festival’s crew. The next year, Ratzenberger relocated to London, where he remained for the next decade.
When John Ratzenberger began his acting career in London, Ratzenberger was a home framer. Sal’s Meat Market was a comedy duo he and Ray Hassett performed in throughout the 1970s. In the late 1970s, he began taking on minor supporting roles before moving on to more prominent roles in the 1980s. “The Ritz” was his debut cinematic appearance and he portrayed a patron.
“Firefox; A Bridge Too Far,” “Superman,” “Superman II,” “Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back” as Important Derlin, “Motel Hell” as a drummer, and “Outland” as a mining worker named Tarlow are just a few of his other minor appearances in major feature films. Martin Sheen provided the voiceover for his role as an American officer in the latter film.
The part of postal carrier Cliff Clavin on the comedy “Cheers” was John Ratzenberger’s big break. His audition for the role of Norm Peterson had gone well, but he soon realised that they were not going to grant him the role. Ratzenberger saw an opening and came up with the brilliant concept of creating a “bar know-it-all” character, which the producers loved. Also, he came up with the concept for Cliff’s trademark white socks. Outlandish stories filled with half-truths, uninteresting facts, and disinformation became the trademark of his persona. In a season six episode of “The Simpsons,” Ratzenberger performed the voice of an animated Cliff.
In both 1985 and 1986, John Ratzenberger was nominated for an Emmy in the category of Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series. At the request of Marriott Services, Paramount Television licenced the “Cheers” bar’s appearance and developed animatronic barflies who resembled Cliff from the show.
John Ratzenberger made an average of $200,000 each episode during his tenure on “Cheers.” That amounted to almost $5 million in revenue per year. In today’s money, that’s around $10 million a year.
The Work of Pixar
Each and every one of Pixar’s major films has had a voice role for Ratzenberger. Among his best-known roles are Hamm the Piggy Bank in the Toy Story films, Mack the truck in the Cars series, and John in the Wall-E movie. Fritz in “Inside Out” and Bill the Crab in “Finding Dory” both have distinctive voices. In “Onward,” he played the construction worker Fenwick in 2020.
Total Revenues from the Movie Industry
The box office earnings of John Ratzenberger are among the greatest ever recorded by an actor. To some extent, this is owing to the fact that John has been in every Pixar film ever, but it also helped since John had a brief appearance in 1980’s The Empire Strikes Back. Total worldwide box office income for John as of this writing is above $6 billion. Samuel L. Jackson is the highest-earning actor of all time, with a worldwide earnings total of $7 billion.
In addition to that,
Last Comic Standing, American Chopper, and Hell’s Kitchen are just a few of the reality series in which he has appeared.
