The ‘Glass Onion’ Cast’s Net Worth Ranked: Here’s Which ‘Knives Out 2’ Star Makes the Most & It’s Not Daniel Craig

Glass Onion

With some of the biggest names in Hollywood, the Glass Onion cast’s net worth is, quite simply, staggering and totals over half a billion dollars. Featuring Daniel Craig—who’s reprising his role as Detective Benoit Blanc—and new characters played by Edward Norton, Janelle Monáe, Kathryn Hahn, Kate Hudson, Leslie Odom Jnr. and Dave Bautista, the follow-up to 2019’s hit murder-mystery Knives Out arrived on Netflix on December 23, 2022.

Glass Onion is a direct sequel to Knives Out with Detective Blanc at the center with a new enthralling case to solve. He finds himself at a lavish private estate on a Greek island. Friends have gathered at the behest of their billionaire friend Miles Bron (Norton) for their yearly reunion. Like some of the best whodunits, each colorful and eccentric character has their own secrets, lies and motivations. When someone turns up dead, everyone is a suspect and Blanc must use his analytical and perceptive powers to get to the bottom of it.

Netflix paid a reported $465 million in March 2021 for the rights to Glass Onion and a third yet-to-be-released Benoit Blanc mystery. In somewhat of a theatrical experiment, Glass Onion was released in cinemas for a week before heading to the streamer. “I’m very grateful to Netflix and the theater chains—this was a big deal for them and they really stepped up in terms of reaching across the aisle,” director Rian Johnson told the New York Times. “My hope is that we do great when it comes on the service, so that we really demonstrate that these two things can complement each other.” Without further ado, here’s the net worth of each of Glass Onion’s cast members ranked.

Net worth: $300 million

Glass Onion character: Miles Bron

Edward Norton’s net worth makes him the wealthiest of the Glass Onion cast, with an estimated $300 million to his name. He began his career in the theater and appeared in the world premiere of playwright Edward Albee’s Fragments. In 1995, Norton scored his first film role in Primal Fear after being discovered by a casting agent. He ended up being nominated for an Oscar and Golden Globe for his role as Aaron Stampler. Four years later, he would earn another Oscar nomination for American History X but his career really began to take off when he starred opposite Brad Pitt in the seminal Fight Club, directed by David Fincher. The film has been ranked as one of the most talked-about and controversial titles of the 90s, but it did not meet expectations at the box office. With a home release, however, it became a cult classic and is now regarded as one of the most important pieces of cinema in history.

Norton’s significant net worth is not thanks to his successful acting career, however. Over the years, he’s made a series of incredibly smart investments in the technology sector. He was a very early investor in Uber and was the first person, other than the rideshare founder Travis Kalanick’s parents, to take an Uber in LA. Norton was the largest individual equity owner in Kensho when it sold to S&P Global for $550 million in 2018 and he also co-founded the crowd fundraising platform CrowdRise, which was acquired in 2017 by GoFundMe. Choosing good solid acting roles, rather than it being his sole focus, is his preference. “I don’t want to look back on my life and see the large majority of it colored with me playing pretend instead of actually doing things,” he once told the New York Times Magazine. “That’s not to pooh-pooh the work or knock anybody else, but I don’t think that actors are better for working more.”

Daniel Craig’s net worth

Net worth: $160 million

Glass Onion character: Benoit Blanc

Daniel Craig’s net worth is the second highest of the Glass Onion cast at $160 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. He’s best known for his portrayal of James Bond in the popular film franchise, of which he has been the face of the franchise since 2006, starring in a total of five films. No Time to Die marked Craig’s final appearance as 007. The actor called his 15-year career as the smooth-talking spy one of the “greatest honors” of his life. “A lot of people here worked on five pictures with me, and I know there’s a lot of things said about what I think about these films,” he said after filming his final scene in the franchise. “But I’ve loved every single second of these movies, and especially this one because I’ve got up every morning and I’ve had the chance to work with you guys. And that has been one of the greatest honors of my life.” He’s managed to command upwards of eight-figure paychecks, including a reported $25 million to reprise Bond in No Time To Die and was paid $100 million to star in Glass Onion and its future sequel, per Variety.

Aside from his acting career, Craig has also earned money through endorsement deals and other business ventures. He has endorsed products such as Omega watches, Heineken beer and most recently Belvedere Vodka, the commercial for which was directed by Taika Waititi. His enormous wealth won’t be passed down to his children, however. He said during an interview with Candis Magazine that he found it “distasteful” to leave heirs massive amounts of money, saying: “My philosophy is get rid of it or give it away before you go.”
