Kyle Chandler Net Worth $5 Million

Born in Buffalo, New York State, Chandler’s family was always on the move because of his father’s job as a sales representative. After several relocations, the Chandler family finally settled in Loganville, Georgia where he spent most of his adolescent years. During is high school years in George Walton Academy, Chandler was fond of playing football but eventually took an interest in theatre, coincidentally after his father’s sudden death due to heart attack.

In college, Chandler studied drama at the University of Georgia. It was also there that a scout from the television network ABC noticed Chandler and asked him to audition in a talent search. In 1988, he was offered a contract with ABC but struggled for a long time before his career took off.

His first role in the world of television was in “Tour of Duty” in 1990, where he had a recurring supporting role. His next project however, was the lead role in the show “Homefront”, where he played the character of Jeff Metcalf for two seasons. In 1994, he once again bagged a lead role in the television show “Early Edition”, a hit among audiences, playing the role of Gary Hobson who has the power to change the future. Though the show was cut short in 2000, Chandler’s performance in the show established his career as an actor and helped in his net worth.

Chandler went on to star in various movies including “King Kong” and “The Day the Earth Stood Still”, and in short-lived television shows including “What About Joan” and “The Lyon’s Den”, but his notable performance in a guest appearance in the medical drama “Grey’s Anatomy” in 2006 earned him a nomination in the 58th Primetime Emmy’s. It was during this appearance that he was approached for the project “Friday Night Lights”.

Though he didn’t want to play the character at first, Chandler eventually starred in the drama series “Friday Night Lights”, which was based on a book and a subsequent movie, in which he played the lead role Eric Taylor, in a town where every one’s lives revolves around football. The show was a big hit, not only among audiences but among award-giving bodies as well, earning him a Primetime Emmy Award. The show’s success not only made him a very successful actor but also increased his wealth.

After the show ended in 2011, Chandler became busy doing films such as “Argo”, “Zero Dark Thirty”, “Broken City” and “The Wolf of Wall Street” to name a few. Most recently, Chandler was cast in a role in a new series entitled “Bloodline”.

In terms of his personal life, Chandler married his wife Kathryn in 1995, and has two daughters, Sydney and Sawyer.

Quotes

#Quote
1My wife, she likes to have things uncluttered, and if something is missing, then one has to be very careful not to ask her if it was thrown out - you have to ask her simply where it might be.
2When I'm around authority, I still feel like I'm 14 or 15 years old.
3I did play two years of high school football and was very short and uncoordinated but the second year I was very tall and skinny and very uncoordinated.
4My grandparents got married at a very young age, and a lot of what I think about marriage is based on their relationship. I watched them over the years and saw how they dealt with everything together, as a team.
5I don't think I had a script on 'King Kong.' But usually you read a script and then you go and audition for it. It's rare when there's no script. I sort of like the latter better, because I'm more successful at it.
6It's much more enjoyable being an actor.
7The only reason anyone ever called me a hero is because I get this paper, here.
8I'm in a great position now where I've got recognition. I'm not recognized too much.

14I can gab with pretty much anyone.
15I love playing a role where I think I'm right and then you learn you're not. And it's what you do with that information.
16Television, cable, features are always out there.
17Look, isn't there any way you can just stamp me as not crazy and let me get outta here.
18Thank goodness I've saved my money.
19One way I differ from my character, Coach Taylor, is that I never would have taken this faraway job without my wife's consent.
20Sometimes a scene may be about one thing, and it may end up still being about that, but the emotionality of it comes from somewhere else, or the humor of it comes from somewhere else, and it gives it that real-life quality.
21I want to find material that piques my interest, keeps me outside the box and challenges me.
22My grandparents got married at a very young age, and a lot of what I think about marriage is based on their relationship.
23I own my own time.
24I work six months and get three or four with the family.
25Marriage is hard work, period.
26I was never upset that I did not get an Emmy. That I did get an Emmy nomination, I couldn't be happier and prouder.
27I also played two years of high school football but I wasn't very, how shall I say it, talented.
28Everything moves a little quicker in Los Angeles.
29I always treat all the jobs I do as an acting class.
30I don't want to say I'm never going to direct again, but directing's hard work.
31I've stopped racing to get to the red light.
32What I do is not rocket science, but I sure do love it.
33I do like to cook; I'm sort of a mad scientist in the kitchen.
34Austin is such a free and creative place, but I can't enjoy it as much because everyone I love is back in L.A.
35What, am I supposed to run around in a little red cape and save the world?
36If you're not really having a good time, it's not worth it.
37I love the institution of marriage, and I love my marriage.
38I grew up in Chicago, so I've always been a Bears fan.
39I work six months and get three or four with the family. I've stopped racing to get to the red light.
40High school was interesting, because I went from a public school middle school to an academy where the first year we were doing Latin, chemistry, biology. I mean, I was woefully unprepared for the type of study.
41When you walk out of your house in the morning, you don't know what you're going to see.
42I think that sense of humor is important in marriage. A sense of humor gets people through marriage.
43We ended up moving out to Texas. We live outside of Austin. We've got a couple horses, we've got three miniature donkeys, we've got four dogs. Miniature donkeys are very warm, loving animals.
44Every actor wants to be everybody - play all the roles.
45We run into some pretty tough arguments sometimes, but the idea is that at the end of the day, my wife and I realize that we'll always be holding each other's hand. This is a lifelong relationship, and after 12 years she hasn't gotten rid of me yet.
46I really love to ride my motorcycle. When I want to just get away and be by myself and clear my head, that's what I do.
47We run into some pretty tough arguments sometimes, but the idea is that at the end of the day, my wife and I realize that we'll always be holding each other's hand.
48I grew up in Chicago, so I've always been a Bears fan. Dad used to take me to Bears games and Cubs games. My brother used to ride me over to Lake Forest College on his Honda Supersport and we'd watch the Bears practice. I remember those guys out there as monsters - they were the biggest things I've ever seen!
49Opportunity does not knock, it presents itself when you beat down the door.
50Oh, man, if in real life I was as cool and suave as Coach Taylor and had all the answers, things would be easier.
