Although born in Connecticut, Kenny grew up on a farm in Weathersfield, Vermont. While attending Central Connecticut State University, he excelled at sports – basketball and American Football in particular. Upon graduation, Johnson spent the next four years working as a model, and prior to settling down in Los Angeles, California, and launching his acting career, he also lived in Boston, Massachusetts. He began his acting career in 1990, initially appearing in television commercials before debuting on the big screen in “The Forbidden Dance” romantic drama movie. These engagements provided the basis for Kenny Johnson’s current net worth.

During the 1990s, Kenny honed his acting skills by appearing in a variety of roles, including support performances in “Family Matters”, “Grace Under Fire”, “The Big Easy” and “The Burning Zone” TV series, as well as in movies such as “Archibald the Rainbow Painter” and “Blade”, both in 1998. He was then cast for the role of Burner in the TV action series “Pensacola: Wings of Gold”, which he reprised ’til 2000. All these appearances helped Kenny to add a significant amount to the size of his net worth.

With the beginning of the 21st century, Johnson’s career was set on the rising path, as he was cast for more and more serious and notable roles, and in 2002 landed the role of detective Curtis ‘Lem’ Lemansky which he portrayed ’til 2006. That year he was also cast for another memorable part – the recurring role of Joseph Shaw in CBS TV’s police drama series “Cold Case”. However, the real breakthrough in Johnson’s acting career occurred in 2007, when he began starring as Hamilton ‘Ham’ Dewey in TNT’s crime drama television series “Saving Grace”, spending the next four years in the character. It is certain that all these accomplishments helped Kenny Johnson to boost not only his popularity, but wealth as well.

Between 2009 and 2011, Johnson starred in “Sons of Anarchy”, while from 2011 to 2012 he was engaged in the “Prime Suspect” TV series. These were followed by notable guest-star performances in the TV series such as “Burn Notice”, “Dexter”, “Covert Affairs” and “Chicago Fire” before opposing Anthony Hopkins in “Solace” (2015), and appearing in the drama movie “Blue” later that year. Some of Johnson’s more recent acting engagements include “Secrets and Lies” and “Bates Motel” TV series, as well as “critically-booed” 2017 action thriller “Check Point”. Doubtlessly, all these ventures have made an impact on the total size of his revenues.

When it comes to his personal life, Kenny Johnson has been married since 2005 to colleague, actress Cathleen Overson with whom he has welcomed one child. Apart from all those efforts already mentioned above, during the early 1990s he was a professional arm wrestler, before completely dedicating himself to acting. With his family, Kenny currently resides in Los Angles, California.

1His hairdo
1On portraying Ham Dewey, one of the female writers on the show wouldn't even look at him: I would have to tell her, It's not me! It's this character! How do you think I feel? I've gotta play the guy! But it really, really makes you feel a certain way towards him. I'm not trying to make him a sympathetic character in any way whatsoever. I'm trying not to judge it personally. It's a very tough line to draw, because I'm married, and this is the exact kind of guy that I'd never want to be. "People automatically say, what a sleaze. There is a sense of denial that this guy is in. But I know real cops. When they're paired up together, they get so close, you know? There's no excuse for it, but these guys do have a connection. They fight like cats and dogs, but when they get in a really messed-up situation, they're there for each other."
2I love people! I am a people person. I am a very curious human being. I am very interested in what people have to say. I love cultures too, so I am always traveling. I am very thankful for anybody who follows anything I do. I never take it for granted that people are out there watching. I want to thank them for giving me the time.
3In my work, I just want to tell a story and help people go on a journey. I'm glad any fans that I do have and I'm usually not aware of it until I get out there or read a message board. I want to thank everyone who follows my work.
