Cast Of Save The Last Dance: How Much Are They Worth Now?Published on January 12, 2016. Updated April 11, 2019
Save the Last Dance was so much more than just another romantic comedy or “dance” movie. It was a comment on race, prejudice, and views on these issues in the 21st century. It was a great film and as such debuted at No.1 at the box office, and was fueled by a young, extremely talented cast with the likes of Julia Stiles, Sean Patrick Thomas, and Kerry Washington. Although some have gone on to have prolific careers, other stars of the film have seemingly faded from the industry. Check out how much the cast of Save the Last Dance is worth now!
9. Terry Kinney
Estimated Net Worth: $1 Million. Fans of Save the Last Dance will remember Terry Kinney as Roy, Julia Stiles character’s father who she has to live with following the death of her mother.

Kinney has been in The Last of the Mohicans, Body Snatchers, The Firm, Sleepers and starred in the series OZ from 1997-2003.

8. Vince Green
Estimated Net Worth: $100 Thousand. Save the Last Dance is actor Vince Green’s most notable project after he appeared as the comedic relief character, Snookie. Prior to the role Green had only two small roles in Chicago Cab, and ER. While he has continued to act sporadically, Green has never hit stardom appearing in things like Everybody Hates Chris, Criminal Minds and Life as an extra or in small roles.

Since Save the Last Dance he has appeared in NYPD Blue, Training Day, Cold Case, NCIS: Los Angeles and Criminal Minds while also offering his voice for video games.
