Actor, singer, and TV pitchman Billy Dee Williams has an estimated net worth of $7.5 million. To go along with his net worth, he has the honorable distinction of appearing in a variety of popular movies like The Empire Strikes Back and Batman. Williams' show business career began as a stage actor, making his debut in the 1945 production of The Firebrand of Florence. He's returned to the stage sporadically over the years in plays like I Have a Dream and Fences. His breakout role, however, was on TV, when he played Chicago Bear Gayle Sayers in the popular TV movie Brian's Song, in 1971. From there, Williams continued to work in movies, including in his most famous role as Lando Calrissian in the second Star Wars movie, The Empire Strikes Back. One of the other biggest movies on his resume, Batman, was supposed to have been part of a much larger role for Williams. In it, he appears as Gotham City district attorney Harvey Dent, a character who goes on to eventually become the super criminal Two-Face. However, it wasn't to be, and Tommy Lee Jones was cast in the part instead in the sequel Batman Forever. In addition to his film work, Billy Dee Williams has also found success in the world of TV commercials, famously appearing in advertisements for Colt 45 malt liquor.
William December "Billy Dee" Williams, Jr. (born April 6, 1937) is an American actor, artist, singer, and writer.
Williams was born in New York City, New York, the son of Loretta Anne, a West Indian-born elevator operator from Montserrat, and William December Williams, Sr., an African-American caretaker from Texas. He has a twin sister, Loretta, and grew up in Harlem, where he was raised by his maternal grandmother while his parents worked at several jobs. Williams graduated from the Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art in Manhattan, where he was a classmate of Diahann Carroll, who coincidentally played the wife of his character Brady Lloyd on the 1980s prime-time soap Dynasty.
He first appeared on Broadway in 1945 in The Firebrand of Florence. He returned to Broadway as an adult in 1960 in the play version of The Cool Word. He appeared in A Taste of Honey in 1961. A 1976 Broadway production, I Have a Dream, was directed by Robert Greenwald and starred Williams as Martin Luther King, Jr. His most recent Broadway appearance was in August Wilson's Fences, as a replacement for James Earl Jones in the role of Troy Maxson in 1988.
He made his film debut in 1959 in the Academy Award nominated The Last Angry Man, opposite Paul Muni, in which he portrayed a delinquent young man. He rose to stardom after starring in the critically lauded blockbuster biographical TV movie, Brian's Song (1971), in which he played Chicago Bears star football player Gale Sayers, who stood by his friend Brian Piccolo (played by James Caan), during his struggle with terminal cancer. Both Williams and Caan were nominated for Emmy Awards for best actor for their performances.
After this breakthrough, Williams became America's leading[citation needed] black film actor in the 1970s after starring in a string of critically acclaimed and popular movies, many of them in the Blaxploitation genre. In 1972, starred as Billie Holiday's husband Louis McKay in Motown Productions' Holida
