The family moved to San Jose when Kevin was a child, thus he attended Pioneer High School there. He showed interest and passion in performing at an early age, and he appeared as a stand-up comedian at the age of 10, then during his mid-teen period, he chased every opportunity he could get to perform. Hence, he would present his prepared jokes in the local cafes when bands went on their breaks; he was very determined to find work and to do what he loved the most. He started touring professionally at the age of 20, pursuing professional career.

In the 1980s he moved back to San Francisco tofind more consistent work, and it was there that he made a name for himself, but his professional acting career really began when he relocated to Los Angeles, and made his debut appearance in George Lucas’ film “Willow” in 1988. The year 1992 was the peak of his career, as he starred with Tom Cruise, Demi Moore and Jack Nicholson in the hit “A Few Good Men”. Other memorable performances followed in “Grumpy Old Men” (1993), “The Usual Suspect” (1995), “Casino” (1995), “The Wedding Planner” (2001), among others, all of which added a considerable amount to his net worth.

Furthermore, in 2009, Pollak launched his own internet talk show entitled “Kevin Pollak’s Chat Show” (2009-2015), in which he interviewed his colleagues and famous actors such as Mattew Perry, Dana Carvey and Jon Hamm. In 2010 he debuted as a director of the TV series “Vamped Out”. Apart from this, he appears in over 70 more movies and has directed and written about 10 pieces of work until today, increasing his net worth by a large margin.

Most recently, he has appeared in such comedies as “Borealis” (2015), of which he was also the executive producer, “Special Correspondents” (2016) and “The Tiger Hunter” (2016). In 2016 he directed the comedy called “The Late Bloomer” which has already won two awards though only released on the 7th October 2016. Furthermore, he is to appear in the thriller called “Axis” which is scheduled for a release in 2017. His net worth is certainly rising.

Kevin Elliot Pollak Quotes

  • (On being a supporting actor) “As my wife puts it, as long as the leading man needs a best friend or an attorney, I’ll continue to work. You know you have to bring your own thing to it, and fortunately if you have a director offering me the part because he wants me to bring my own thing to it, I’m going to be able to do that. I like to think that I choose things that will have an impact on the story so I won’t be just a filler.”
  • (On Bruce Willis) We became good friends during A Few Good Men (1992). He was shooting Death Becomes Her (1992) right next door and, of course, he’d come over to visit his wife and we started hanging out and have been good friends since. He’s amazing. One of the things I admire, separate from his work which I’ve always enjoyed, is that the people he’s surrounded by are friends he’s known for 25 years or more. It doesn’t feel like a posse. It feels like he created his own family at work, which is pretty admirable. When you’re young and thinking about going into show business your closest friends are the first to say, “Someday you’re going to be famous and we’ll all hang out together”. You say, “Yeah, yeah” and it never happens. But I stay in touch with three of my best friends which I’ve known for 35 years. We make an annual trek to Vegas for the Super Bowl and for those three or four days it’s heaven on earth. Bruce is unbelievably generous and loyal and a true inspiration in that regard as well. I love working with him. I love being around him. He’s the party.
  • I am completely and utterly hooked to all the great shows on A&E and Court TV that are about small town murder. These shows like Forensic Files (1996), City Confidential (1998), I just can’t get enough of them. It’s always the same sort of deal. You know that they interview the actual people that lived through the experience. I miss Paul Winfield as the host of City Confidential (1998), may he rest in peace.
  • As rewarding as a good film role can be, there is just nothing like getting up on a stage and taking an audience for a ride. You make a movie, and the audience may not see it for another 10 months. Here, you know immediately their reaction.
