Michael Madsen net worth 2017, biography & wiki:

Michael Sren Madsen (born September 25, 1958) is an American celebrity, poet and photographer. He’s appeared in more than 150 pictures, a lot of that have been independent films, though he’s starred in principal characters in such movies as “Reservoir Dogs”, “Free Willy”, “Vice”, “Donnie Brasco” and “Kill Bill”, along with a supporting part in “Sin City”. In 2013, he expressed Finn O’Leary of “Mod of the Dead” “Call of Duty: Black Ops II”.

In 1982, Madsen was cast by Edward McDougal for the lead in a independent film, Against All Hope, his first picture. Then he played a little part in the studio picture War Games in 1983. Afterward arrived a memorable part as the razor-wielding, sadistic ex con and jewel robber “Mr. Blonde” in the bloody Quentin Tarantino crime narrative Reservoir Dogs. The picture brought Madsen interest among critics and supporters. Throughout a scene in which Madsen’s psychopathic character Mr. Blonde tortures a police officer, celebrity Kirk Baltz ad libbed a line about being a dad to a young kid. Madsen, who himself had only become a dad, was so disturbed that he found it almost impossible to complete the scene. On some copies of the movie ‘s DVD, as Baltz finishes the line, a voice could be heard off-screen saying “Oh, no, no …” The adlib exacerbated Madsen’s initial unwillingness to do the scene, due to his real life aversion to violence. Madsen was subsequently cast in a number of major studio movies, including Free Willy, Mulholland Falls, Wyatt Earp, Species and with Johnny Depp and Al Pacino in the critically acclaimed Donnie Brasco. He was not able to play the character of Vincent Vega in Pulp Fiction as he could not get out of rehearsals for the movie Wyatt Earp. The role instead went to John Travolta, relaunching his career. Madsen regretted the conclusion above a decade afterwards.

49He points to Robert Mitchum as his idol and role model. Many similarities are apparent, as both are large, intimidating "tough guys" who are generally underrated and Madsen (as did Mitchum) doesn't always appear in films for their artistic merit. They both shared a love for poetry. He and Mitchum also both appeared in War and Remembrance (1988), though they never had any scenes together.
50Because of his strong aversion to violence, Madsen was very uncomfortable filming the torture scenes in Reservoir Dogs (1992), especially in the scenes in which he was required to hit Kirk Baltz.

54Former brother-in-law of Danny Huston and Cher.
55Dennis Hopper wrote the introduction to his book of short stories and poems "Burning in Paradise".
56His character of Mr. Blonde was one of the 200 nominees on the American Film Institute's list of 100 years of the best Heroes and Villains. He was also the only character from Reservoir Dogs (1992) who was nominated. However, he didn't make it into the top 50.
57Announced the second greatest movie villain of all time by Maxim Magazine's "Greatest Movie Villains of all Time" for his character in Reservoir Dogs (1992) of "Mr. Blonde".

Looks like we don't have Michael Madsen salary information. Sorry!


#Quote
1Kill Bill, Species, Free Willy, Thelma And Louise, Reservoir Dogs and Donny Brasco. Six, that's it. That's not a low number. I'm just hard to please. I've made some crap but you've got to pay the bills.
2[2002] The thing with Wyatt Earp (1994)] was, I think every guy in that picture did it because they wanted to walk down the streets of the OK Corral. That's part of history. That's a historical event that actually happened. I remember standing on top of the street with Dennis Quaid on the morning that we started to shoot this sequence and he said, "Let's face it, what we're about to do is the reason that we're all here." And he was right and we all knew he was. It was kind of ironic, if any of us had known how far it was down to the OK Corral, then we would have taken the horses . . . I might have even grabbed a cab. Having seen the movie, it was a long boring exercise in nothingness, so . . . But I still have to say that doing something that was historically accurate and had to do with history was very appealing to me.
3[2002] I liked The Getaway (1994). I think "The Getaway" is pretty good. It was exciting. I don't think that it's comparable to the original [The Getaway (1972)] by any stretch of the imagination, but I still think it stands on its own. I think it was a little bit more exciting than given credit for.
4I like to diversify. And I am all about longevity. I want to be doing this for as long as I can. I have made, I think, 72 pictures now. And I have made a lot of studio stuff and I have made a lot of low-budget stuff. The fun of making independent films is that they are a lot more open and it is a lot easier to ad-lib and create a character and collaborate with the director. With a studio picture, you are a lot more controlled and your whole environment and your whole presentation is a lot more monitored.
5I say my [tough guy] acting days are over, But then [Humphrey Bogart] made 30 pictures playing a [tough guy], and it wasn't until The Maltese Falcon (1941) that he was thought of as a leading man.
6[on his role in Strength and Honour (2007)] It's a movie about fighters, not fighting. You know, I got over seeing myself on screen a long time ago, but watching this film really affects me.
7I grew up in a time when I watched actors like Humphrey Bogart and Robert Mitchum . . . those are the movies that I liked and I responded to. They're all gone now and there's no talent like that anymore, there's no immensity of talent that exists like that in the motion picture industry. Even the movies are turning into a bunch of junk. They think if they put a handsome face in there or a good-looking body and they surround it with enough cars blowing up, that it is going to be entertaining . . . but in the long run it's just not going to last. It's all empty, there's no story anymore . . . the same thing is happening to the motion picture industry that is happening to the landscape.
8My career has been very strange. My career is like a heart monitor. I get involved in a good project now and then to keep things going. And then I make things that I work on that I hope are going to be good so I can make a living and keep a roof over the heads of those little monsters I have in my house. You know, every movie you make can't be great, no matter who you are. Even [Marlon Brando] made some clinkers.
9I probably made a few pictures I shouldn't have done, but I have four sons and I have to pay the rent. If you have a decision to make about whether or not you can buy groceries at the market or whether or not you're going to make a bad movie, you're going to make a bad movie.
10I've been in a few brawls in my time.
11[on Donnie Brasco (1997)] Great film, sure, but not a payday. [Al Pacino] and [Johnny Depp] got all the money. There was none left for me.
12L.A. Confidential (1997) was written with me in mind, but Russell Crowe got the part. Go figure.
13[2004] Maybe I was just born in the wrong era, man. I'm a bit of a throwback to the days of black-and-white movies. Those guys back then, they had a certain kind of directness about them. A lot of the screenplays, the plots were very simplistic - they gave rise to a type of anti-hero that maybe I suit better.
14You get these horrifying straight-to-video things for very little money, then you go to the Cannes Film Festival and they got some poster of you, 40 feet high, in the worst movie in the world. You're like, "Oh my God. Take the fucking thing down!"
15I'm a leading man trapped inside a bad guy's body.
16The oddest thing is when children recognize me from Free Willy (1993) and their parents recognize me from Reservoir Dogs (1992). The kids are, like, "There's Glen!" and the parents are, like, "Don't go near that guy!"
17I encourage my boys to do stuff in the arts, but I'm also an advocate of not taking any shit . . . I have a heavy bag and every morning the boys go three three-minute rounds on the heavy bag with the gloves.
18Is it really selling out if it feeds your family?
19Your children don't have to fear you to respect you.
20Encourage your kids' artistic side. Toughen up everything else.
21[in Men's Health, March 2004] Kids are a great excuse for you to stop acting like one.
22Well, one thing for sure, I won't be remembered for Free Willy (1993). Or maybe I will.
