Born in Glendale, California, Matheson entered the world of acting at a very early age. When he was 13 years old, he was cast to become part of the show “Window on Main Street”, and his career as an actor had officially started.

After two years in the show, Matheson also did a short stint as a voice talent, lending his voice to a number of animated series in the ‘60s including “Jonny Quest”, “Sinbad Jr. and his Magic Belt” and “Space Ghost”. His early projects as a young actor helped his career and also his net worth.

In 1968, he went back to acting and starred alongside Lucille Ball and Henry Fonda in the movie “Yours, Mine and Ours”. During this time he also became a frequent face on television and appeared in a number of series, including “The Virginian”, “The Quest” and “Bonanza” to name a few. His net worth grew steadily.

During the late ‘70s, Matheson had a career breakthrough when he appeared in the movie “National Lampoon’s Animal House”; his role as Eric “Otter” Stratton hit the right cord with fans, and his partnership opposite actor John Belushi made the movie a hit. The success of the movie not only improved his career but also increased his wealth.

Matheson continued on as an actor, and appeared in many more projects including the series “Tucker’s Witch”, “To Be or Not to Be”, “Fletch” and “Up the Creek”. He was also cast in the movie “A Very Brady Sequel”, one of the movies in the Brady Bunch franchise.

Up until the early 2000s, Matheson was still very much active in acting. He even garnered an Emmy Award nomination for his portrayal of Vice President John Hoynes in the series “The West Wing”.

Aside from acting, Matheson also ventured into directing, being responsible for episodes of some of the most well-known series on television, including “Without a Trace”, “Burn Notice”, “The Last Ship”, “Drop Dead Diva”, “Numbers”, “Cold Case”, “White Collar”, and “Eureka” to name a few. His directorial work also helped in his career and net worth.

Today, Matheson is still active as an actor, in the series “Hart of Dixie” as one of his most recent projects, playing Dr. Brick Breeland in the show which lasted for four seasons ending in 2015.

In terms of his personal life, Matheson has been married twice, firstly to Jennifer Leak from 1968 to 1971, and later on to Megan Murphy from 1985 to 2010. Despite his failed marriages, he is the father of three children from his marriage with Murphy.
