Net Worth & Salary
The Fly (1958)
In your career, you must be so careful, otherwise you get caught in a particular image and it's hard to break.
[on why he turned down the lead in The Brady Bunch (1969)] I turned it down because after four years of subs and monsters, who needs kids and dogs?
Of course, there are pictures you never want to see again -- most of the films I've made like The Fly (1958), The Lost World (1960), Marines, Let's Go (1961). There's a whole slew of shit I avoid like the plague and when I know they'll be on TV I have a dinner party and invite my friends over so they can't see them.
When I go back to theater I feel good about myself. When I do films or TV, it's to make a little bread to pay my mortgage or whatever and when I've made the money I do theater again. And when I get a part I like, a part I can work on, that satisfies me. I feed good about myself. Most of the time I don't even watch what I do on TV. I go in, get the job done, and just know it's nothing. It's a job. Sometimes, I try something different and I'll watch out of curiosity. Generally, I don't watch too much of what I do. Movies are basically the same, except it's more money spent on sets.
