Richard Roundtree Net Worth: Richard Roundtree is an American actor and former fashion model who has a net worth of $2 million. Born on July 9, 1942 in New Rochelle, New York, US, Roundtree was prominent leading man in early 1970s blaxploitation films. A graduate from Southern Illinois University Carbondale, he turned into a handsome black lead as he gave incredible portrayal of the smooth title character in the classic action film "Shaft" (1971). Even though not exactly a blaxploitation movie itself, Shaft spawned a generation of them. Richard Roundtree subsequently had the chance to play the private detective in the movie's two sequels "Shaft's Big Score" (1972) and "Shaft in Africa" (1973), as well as on a CBS TV series, "Shaft" (1973-1974). Meanwhile, he has also took on few other leads and occasionally guest starred in various projects including on an episode of the hit series Beverly Hills, 90210. In the post-Shaft period, there was a time when Roundtree's career seemed to have stopped. It was all because Richard Roundtree underwent a double mastectomy and chemotherapy, after he was diagnosed with rare form of male breast cancer in 1993. However, Roundtree managed to get back to action in the second half of the 90s with numerous films and TV shows. In 1997, he was tapped to lead an ensemble cast, playing the lead in the Fox drama series "413 Hope Street" (1997). He could be also seen in the movies George of the Jungle (1997) and Brick (2005), as well as on such TV projects as Y2K - World in Crisis (1999-2000) and Lincoln Heights (2006) among others.
