Joe Penny Net Worth $500 Thousand Dollars

Joe Penny Net Worth: Joe Penny is an English actor with a net worth of $500 thousand. Joe Penny was born Joseph Edward Penny Jr on June 24 1956, in London, England. He rose to acclaim largely in the 1980s. Penny was the son of an American father and Italian mother and spent most of his youth in Marietta, Georgia. After his parents’ divorce, he moved along with his mom to California. A high-school pupil at the time, Penny attended Marina High School in Huntington Beach, California. Never a high profile pupil, he seemed to be far more enthusiastic about playing soccer and basketball, rather than taking extra-curricular activities like play courses. Long before he understood that acting was his real calling, Penny did a great variety of odd jobs, including washing postal trucks, team foreman and dishwasher. Under Lee Strasberg’s, the dark and hunky ‘tough guy’ performer soon learned the craft, particularly excelling at playing heroes and mobsters. Once he broke the ice having a minor role on the show Forever Fernwood in 1977, Penny may be viewed in numerous TV films. He also made many guest appearances on hit television shows, such as Touched by an Angel,Lou Grant, CHiPs, Flamingo Road, The Sopranos, 7th Heaven, Tucker’s Witch, Boomtown and CSI. It was in the mid 1980’s that he reached the peak of his career together with his roles as Nick Ryder on the detective show Riptide from 1984–1986, and as Jake Styles in the CBS television series Jake and the Fatman from 1987-1992. As for his major subsequent appearances, they include a character opposite Lea Thompson in the mystery show Jane Doe (2005) to the Hallmark Channel.
