Clancy Brown’s Net Worth

Clancy Brown’s net worth is estimated to be around $5 million, but considering his house, which he purchased in 2002 for $1.2 million, is now estimated to be worth approximately $2.84 million in 2024, he is probably worth more.

Clancy Brown’s Salary

Here are some realistic estimates for Clancy Brown’s earnings from various roles:

Voice Acting in “SpongeBob SquarePants”

As the voice of Mr. Krabs, a key character in a highly successful and long-running series, it’s reasonable to speculate that Brown’s per-episode earnings could be substantial. For a voice actor of his caliber in a popular show, earnings might range from $10,000 to $30,000 per episode, depending on the contract specifics and the show’s success.


Clancy Brown, in his early career, landed the role of The Kurgan in the 1986 film “Highlander.” While there were rumors, possibly stemming from a 2021 interview, suggesting he received no salary for this role, with the experience of working alongside Sean Connery being considered compensation enough, this wasn’t entirely accurate. In reality, Brown, who was an emerging actor at the time and recommended for the part by Sting, did receive a salary, albeit a modest one.

Being a part of the Screen Actor’s Guild (SAG), Brown was entitled to a minimum daily wage. Given the film’s budget constraints, particularly the high cost of bringing in Connery, Brown’s salary was likely quite limited. It’s realistic to estimate that his total compensation for “Highlander” was on the lower end for a feature film, perhaps ranging between $20,000 to $50,000 for the entire film. This aligns with the industry standards for lesser-known actors at the time and the SAG minimum requirements.
“The Shawshank Redemption”

For a significant supporting role in a major film like “The Shawshank Redemption,” it’s conceivable that Brown’s salary was higher than in “Highlander” but still reflective of his rising profile. A realistic estimate could be in the range of $50,000 to $100,000 for his role in the film.

“John Wick” series

By the time Clancy Brown was cast in the “John Wick” series, he had established himself as a seasoned actor with a significant body of work. In such high-profile films, and given his status in the industry, it’s realistic to estimate that Brown’s salary for a supporting role would be substantial. For his appearance in the “John Wick” series, Brown’s salary could reasonably fall within the range of $100,000 to $500,000. This estimation takes into account factors like his screen time and the specific terms of his contract.

This figure stands in contrast to the series’ lead, Keanu Reeves, who has been reported to have earned a staggering $22 million for playing the title character, John Wick. A significant portion of this amount, around $15 million, was for his work in “John Wick: Chapter 4.” For the earlier movies in the series, Reeves’ salaries varied, ranging from $1-2 million to $2-2.5 million.

Clancy Brown’s houses

Clancy owns a house in Los Angeles, California. He purchased this 6-bedroom, 5-bathroom property, which covers 3,682 square feet, in March of 2002 for $1.2 million, according to public records.
