Frank Oz is a true Hollywood Renaissance Man. An actor, director, producer and puppeteer, Frank Oz has a net worth of $80 million. His net worth has been accumulated over many years in the industries of TV and movies, working as a director, voice actor, puppeteer, and more.
He is perhaps most famous for his contributions to the hugely successful Muppets franchise, having created and voiced characters such as Miss Piggie, Fozzie Bear, Cookie Monster, Bert (of Bert & Ernie fame), and Grover. As if that weren’t enough in the field of puppetry, Oz also operated and voiced the Yoda puppet in the massively popular Star Wars films. Oz has also made his mark as a director, having helmed movies like The Indian in the Cupboard, What About Bob?, The Score, In & Out and Bowfinger. His career as a director began in the mid-80s, when he co-directed Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal, a fantasy/adventure movie that featured the most advanced puppets ever seen on film. It remains one of the only movies to feature exclusively puppet actors and is considered by many to be Jim Henson’s masterpiece. But it is a near certainty that none of it could have happened if it were not for the unique talents of Frank Oz. Thanks to his connection to so many popular film franchises, Frank’s films have grossed billions of dollars at the global box office. He has continued to voice Yoda in more recent Star Wars movies like The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi.
