Yaphet Kotto net worth: Yaphet Kotto is an American actor who has a net worth of $5 million dollars. Born in New York, New York, Yaphet Kotto began studying acting when he was in his late teens, taking classes with the Actor's Mobile Theater Studio. He booked his first professional job when he was 19, appearing in a production of "Othello". He then went on to make his Broadway debut as James Earl Jones' replacement in "The Great White Hope". His on-camera career began in the early 60s, and by the early 70s, he was appearing in starring and guest-starring roles in such projects as, "Live and Let Die", "Hawaii Five-O", "Blue Collar", "Alien", "Midnight Run", "Tripwire", and "Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare". He is most widely recognized for his work on the hit dramatic series, "Homicide: Life on the Street", in which he played Lieutenant Al Giardello for seven seasons.
Yaphet Frederick Kotto (born November 15, 1937) is an African-American actor, known for numerous film roles including the science-fiction/horror film Alien, the science-fiction/action film The Running Man and as the main villain in the 1973 James Bond movie Live and Let Die, and his starring role in the NBC television series Homicide: Life on the Street (1993-2000). He appeared opposite Robert De Niro in the 1988 comedy thriller Midnight Run as disgruntled FBI agent Alonzo Moseley. He is also a music producer who is a part of Legendary Inc., founded by Young L of The Pack.
Kotto was born in New York City. His mother was Gladys Marie, a local nurse and U.S. Army officer. His father was Avraham Kotto (originally named Njoki Manga Bell), a businessman from Cameroon. In his autobiography titled Royalty, Kotto writes that his father was "the crown prince of Cameroon." Kotto stated that he found out that his family was royal in adult life while studying his family's lineage, and also stated that he is a descendant of Queen Victoria. Kotto's father, who emigrated to the U.S. in the 1920s, was, according to Kotto, an observant Jew who spoke Hebrew, and Kotto's mother reportedly converted to Judaism before marrying his father. Kotto also stated that his great-grandfather King Alexander Bell ruled the Douala region of Cameroon in the late-19th century and was also a practicing Jew. Kotto has said that his paternal family originated from Israel and migrated to Egypt and then Cameroon, and have been African Jews for many generations. His claim of being a descendent of Queen Victoria has been denied by the Buckingham Palace press office.
Being black and Jewish gave other children (both whites and blacks) even more reason, he has said, to pick on him growing up in New York City. "It was rough coming up," Kotto said. "And then going to shul, putting a yarmulke on, having to face people who were primarily Baptists in the Bronx meant that on Fridays, I was in some heavy fistfi
