Glover attended George Washington High School in San Francisco. He attended San Francisco State University (SFSU) in the late 1960s but did not graduate. SFSU later awarded him an honorary degree. Glover trained at the Black Actors’ Workshop of the American Conservatory Theater.
He is famous for his characters as Mr. Albert Johnson in The Color Purple, as Michael Harrigan in Predator 2, as tainted policeman James McFee in Witness, as Detective Sergeant Roger Murtaugh in the Lethal Weapon film franchise, as Detective David Tapp in Saw and as George Knox in Angels in the Outfield.

Danny Glover was born July 22, 1946 in San Francisco, California. He is famous for his characters as Mr. Albert Johnson in The Color Purple, as Michael Harrigan in Predator 2, as corrupt policeman James McFee in Witness, as Detective Sergeant Roger Murtaugh in the Lethal Weapon movie franchise, as Detective David Tapp in Saw and as George Knox in Angels in the Outfield. A versatile performer, Danny Glover played villains and heroes in all kinds of films.
In March 1998, Glover was appointed as a United Nations goodwill ambassador. Danny Glover has additionally appeared in numerous television shows including ER and Brothers & Sisters. He also appeared in the movie The Royal Tenenbaums (2001). On April 16, 2010, Glover was detained in Maryland during a protest by SEIU workers for Sodexo’s unjust and illegal treatment of workers. He was given a citation and after released. Also in 2010, Starr King School for the Ministry awarded the Doctorate of Humane Letters (Litterarum Humanarum Doctor), in absentia, to Mr. Glover. His call to humanity to see itself as the receiver of a legacy of care and dedication that started with earlier parental and spiritual communities and that it should carry on for the interest of these who will follow are in alignment with Starr King’s values.
Danny Glover net worth now amounts to $40 million, making him one of the richest black men in Hollywood. During his extended career Danny has earned 30 credits as a producer, but however, I think that it’s absolutely safe to state that most of his fortune came from acting. We don’t understand how much just he’s received for each of the films, because as most performers, Glover is usually unwilling to discuss his monetary matters publically, but according to IMDb, the celebrity has received a couple of millions for Gone Fishin’ and $7 million for the performance in Lethal Weapon 4. In case the rest of his characters were at least 1/10th as money-making, it leaves us without any wonder why Danny Glover net worth is as tremendous as it is now. In the end , this guy has more than 160 credits as an actor! But let’s take a closer look at his career and see where the fortune of the performer really came from…
Danny made his movie debut in 1979, appearing on the celebrated movie Escape from Alcatraz as one of the convicts. Six years later he got a starring role on The Color Purple. This interval drama film, where he starred alongside Whoopi Goldberg and Oprah Winfrey, grossed $98 million against a budget of $15 million and got largely favorable critical reviews. To quote one of them, Roger Ebert from Chicago Sun-Times wrote that “The world of Celie along with the others is created so forcibly in this picture that their corner of the South becomes one of those picture places — like Oz, like Tara, like Casablanca — that lay claim to their own geography in our imaginations”. Actually , the film was so popular with critics, movie-making community and also the overall audience, that nobody was surprised when it won an Academy Award for the Best Picture. Needless to say, the success of the picture has set Danny Glover net worth on a faster rate.
Danny’s next important movie, Predator 2, came out in 1990. Although this science fiction action horror film got negative reviews, the critics were usually impressed by the decision to cast Danny Glover as an action hero. For example Rita Kempley wrote that the existence of Glover “brings an unusual depth to the action experience and proves fiercely powerful as the Predator’s new nemesis.” Each one of the roles we have already discussed were significant in Danny’s career, but I think that for the most part, the actor owes his world wide fame to the movie show Lethal Weapon and his character Sergeant Roger Murtaugh. Naturally, these film series has added a solid sum to Danny Glover net worth.
