This list takes a look back at one of our favorite rom-coms and how much the cast is worth now:
9. Jack McBrayer

This actor and comedian got his big break when he met Tina Fey while working at Second City and was offered a series regular role on her show, 30 Rock. He’s also had recurring roles on series like The Middle, Arrested Development, The Jack and Triumph Show and continues to do voice work as a series regular on the Disney’s Wander Over Yonder. Jack also does a lot of voice acting, his most notable role has been on the show Phineas and Ferb, and films like Despicable Me, Wreck-It Ralph and the upcoming film Smurf’s: The Lost Village. All of Jack’s impressive film and television work has led him to an estimated net worth of $6 million!
8. Maria Thayer
Estimated Net Worth: Unknown. Maria is a lesser known American actress and comedian, but best known for her role in the film, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, as well as Accepted and as Tammi Littlenut in Strangers with Candy. She hasn’t done many films, but rather mostly small screen work doing guest appearances on shows like Nip/Tuck, Will & Grace, 30 Rock, Lipstick Jungle, House, Arrested Development, and Married. She’s had a few recurring roles on shows like Those Who Can’t, Gotham, The League, Comedy Bang! Bang! and Cougar Town. She’s also been in a few stage productions and two music videos. Maria’s estimated net worth is largely unknown because she hasn’t had any leading roles and very few recurring roles. Although on account of her guest appearances and roles in big films like Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Accepted, she’s probably worth around $2 million.
7. Bill Hader
Estimated Net Worth: $8 million. Bill Hader got his start on Saturday Night Live where he’s best known for doing incredible celebrity impressions and remained on the show for eight seasons. Today he’s a well recognized actor outside the comedy network.

He’s also lent his voice to big films like Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, and Inside Out. With an impressive resume like this (plus more), it’s no surprise that Bill Hader has an estimated net worth of $8 million.
6. Jonah Hill
Estimated Net Worth: $40 million. Once Jonah Hill got his big break in the film I Heart Huckabees, the movie roles just started rolling in. He’s appeared in so many successful films it’s no wonder his net worth is so high.

He received critical acclaim for his role in Moneyball alongside Brad Pitt and for his role in The Wolf of Wall Street. His best roles have been alongside other comedians like Michael Cera, James Franco and Seth Rogan.

5. Paul Rudd

He’s also appeared in one of the most successful NBC sitcom series, Friends, as Phoebe’s husband and was the writer/producer/lead behind big films like Ant Man, Role Models and Wanderlust. He’s extremely active on the small screen as well — he’s the co-creator, writer, producer behind the series Party Down, and he’s appeared in series like Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, Parks and Recreation, and of course hosted Saturday Night Live. We are surprised his net worth isn’t listed higher, it most likely is, but he’s listed at earning a net worth of $30 million.

She’s recieved a nomination each year since 1999, with 6 wins under her belt from various awards like Teen Choice, MTV, People, and even Golden Globe.
