James Michael Tyler’s Net Worth At The Time Of His Death May Surprise You



As Celebrity Net Worth notes, James Michael Tyler didn’t exactly study acting in school. Instead, the Mississippi native graduated from Clemson with a Geology degree. The outlet reports that he did go on to get his Masters of Fine Arts in Theater, however.

Believe it or not, Tyler earned the role of Gunther on “Friends” because he was apparently the only extra on the set who had knowledge of how to use an espresso machine, which made him the perfect candidate for a “job” at Central Perk (via Insider). The unlikely star started out making $5,000 per episode, but by the end of the show’s iconic run, Tyler was earning $40,000 per episode.

Needless to say, by the time “Friends” filmed its final episode, according to Celebrity Net Worth, Tyler would have made $4.65 million. Royalties added up to another couple million bucks, in all likelihood.

When he died, Celebrity Net Worth estimates the star’s net worth was $4 million.
