Oliver’s first engagement dates back to the very early age of two, when he was featured as a baby model in a catalog for Sears. At the age of six, he appeared in a commercial for the Chevron Corporation, when he caught the eye of a casting agent which led to his, although short-lived, movie career. In 1990, Oliver was cast for the role of Junior Healy, the title role of Dennis Dugan’s family comedy movie “Problem Child” – this engagement provided the basis for Michael Oliver’s current net worth.

Later that year, Michael also made a brief appearance in one episode of the “Amen” TV series, which was followed by one more short appearance in “The Munsters Today” TV series. Following the commercial success of the first movie, Oliver was cast to reprise his role of Junior Healy in the 1991 sequel, simply named “Problem Child 2”. This engagement helped young Michael Oliver not only to earn a nomination for Young Artist Award, but also to add a sum of $80,000 to his net worth.

For his performance as Mitchell in “Drexell’s Class” TV series in 1991, Michael Oliver was honored with Young Artist Award nomination for the Best Young Actor in a TV series. In 1995, Michael was cast in what later turned out to be his final child role and the end of his acting career, the role of Sam Dalton in 1995 John Purdy’s crime thriller “Dillinger and Capone”. Doubtlessly, these on-camera appearances helped Michael Oliver to further increase the total amount of his revenues.

As it was later acknowledged, during filming Problem Child 2″ Oliver’s manager-acting-mother sued Universal Pictures, demanding a sum between $80,000 and $500,000, in order not to remove him from the set. After the trial, Universal was ordered to pay the sum of $80,000. After the movies were released, the studio sued Oliver’s mother for extortion.
