Lou Gossett, Jr. net worth: Lou Gossett, Jr. is an American actor who has a net worth of $3 million dollars. Born in Brooklyn, New York, Lou Gossett, Jr., decided to audition for a high school play, after he injured himself playing sports. He turned down an athletic scholarship to NYU to focus on theater, but had to put his college plans on hold, after he was cast in the Broadway production of "Take a Giant Step"while completing his senior year of high school. After appearing in the Broadway cast of "A Raisin in the Sun", he then transitioned to film work, when the play was adapted into a film in 1961. He has since enjoyed a long and distinguished film and television career, and has appeared in such projects as, "An Officer and a Gentleman", "Iron Eagle", "Firewalkers", "Diggstown", "A Good Man in Africa", "Daddy's Little Girls", "The Mod Squad", "Good Times", "Roots", "The Josephine Baker Story", "Touched by An Angel", and "ER". He has won two Golden Globes, a Primetime Emmy, a Daytime Emmy, and an Oscar.
Louis Cameron Gossett, Jr. (born May 27, 1936) is an American actor. He is perhaps best known for his Academy Award-winning role as Gunnery Sergeant Emil Foley in the 1982 film An Officer and a Gentleman, and his Emmy Award-winning role as Fiddler in the 1977 ABC television miniseries Roots. Gossett has also starred in numerous film productions including A Raisin In The Sun, Skin Game, Travels with My Aunt, The Laughing Policeman, The Deep, Jaws 3-D, Wolfgang Peterson's Enemy Mine, the Iron Eagle series, Toy Soldiers and The Punisher, in an acting career that spans over five decades.
Gossett was born in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, New York, to Hellen Rebecca (nA(C)e Wray), a nurse, and Louis Gossett, Sr., a porter. His stage debut came at the age of 17, in a school production of You Can't Take It with You when a sports injury resulted in the decision to take an acting class. Polio had already delayed his graduation.
After graduating from Abraham Lincoln High School in 1954, he attended New York University, declining an athletic scholarship. Standing 6'4" (1.93 m), he was offered the opportunity to play varsity basketball during his college years at NYU, which he declined to concentrate on theater. His high school teacher had encouraged him to audition for a Broadway part, which resulted in his selection for a starring role on Broadway in 1953 from among 200 other actors well before he entered NYU.
Gossett replaced Bill Gunn as Spencer Scott in Broadway's Take a Giant Step, which was selected by The New York Times drama critics as one of the 10 best shows of the year. He was 17, and still a student at Abraham Lincoln High School, with no formal drama training.
Gossett's Broadway theatre credits include A Raisin in the Sun (1959). Gossett stepped into the world of cinema in the Sidney Poitier vehicle A Raisin in the Sun in 1961.
Gossett co-wrote the antiwar folk song "Handsome Johnny" with Richie Havens which Havens recorded in 1967.
His Emmy Award-win
