Hal was born the youngest child of Charles and Frances Lipshitz and is of American, Lithuanian and Jewish descent. He matriculated from both Herman Ridder Junior High School and High School of Music and Art before enrolling at Queens College in his hometown. Hal later attended Baruch College, but obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree majoring in business from City College of New York. He began his career in the entertainment industry as a clarinet and saxophone player in the early 1950s, touring and performing with Bobby Sherwood, Sammy Kaye and several other big names. While serving in the US Army at Fort Belvoir, Virginia between 1952 and 1954, Hal performed in the United States Army Band.

Although he debuted on the small screen in 1951, in “Search for Tomorrow”, he didn’t officially begin his acting career ’til 1958 when he was cast in the Broadway musical production “Bells Are Ringing”. Throughout the 1960s as well as 1970s, Hal Linden built a respectable stage acting career – for his performance as Mayer Rothschild in 1971 Broadway musical “The Rothschilds”, Hal was rewarded with a prestigious Tony Award. In 1973 he was cast for the role of detective Lou Isaacs in NBC’s TV movie “Mr. Inside/Mr. Outside” featuring Tony Lo Bianco in the leading role. It is certain that all these engagements provided a huge, positive impact on Hal Linden’s net worth.

However, the real breakthrough in Hal Linden’s acting career occurred in 1974, when he was cast for the title role in the eponymous television series “Barney Miller”. During the show’s seven seasons, Hal portrayal brought him seven prestigious Primetime Emmy Award nominations, and is doubtlessly one of Linden’s most memorable professional engagements, which resulted in a significant increment to his overall net worth as well as his popularity.

Hal has since appeared in numerous other TV series, the most memorable are “The Boys are Back”, “Gilmore Girls”, “Law & Order: Criminal Intent”, “Will & Grace” as well as more recently “Hot in Cleveland”, “Supernatural” and “American Project”.

Hal also added several notable movie credits to his professional acting portfolio including “A New Life” (1988), “Out to Sea” (1997), “Time Changer” (2002) and 2008 TV movie “A Kiss at Midnight”. All these engagements have helped Hal Linden to add a significant sum to his wealth.

Parallel to his acting career, Hal Linden was carefully maintained his musical one – ’til the 1980s he was a regular performer on New York City’s nightclub circuit. In 2011, he revived his music career with a cabaret tour “An Evening with Hal Linden: I’m Old Fashioned”. Later that year, he released his debut studio album – “It’s Never Too Late”. These ventures have certainly impacted Hal Linden’s net worth in a positive manner.

When it comes to his personal life, Hal Linden was married to dancer Fran Martin, between 1958 and 2010 when she passed away. He is the father of four children.
