Michael was born to a job supervisor Gwendolyn Boatman Pugh, and US Army officer Daniel Boatman. After moving to Chicago, Illinois, he enrolled at Western Illinois University where he discovered his interest in as well as talent for acting. Michael appeared in several productions including main roles in “Purlie Victorious” and “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”, and was a member of the comedy troupe named Shock Treatment. For his performances, he was honored with the reputable Irene Ryan Theater Award as well as with an Alumni Achievement Award.

Michael debuted as an actor appearing as Pte Ray Motown in “Hamburger Hill”, a 1987 John Irvin Vietnam War action thriller, immediately followed by a role in the 1988 drama movie “Running on Empty”. A more memorable engagement came later that year when he was cast for the role of Pte Samuel Beckett in the Vietnam War drama television series “China Beach”, starring in its next three seasons, ’til 1990. All these engagements provided the basis for Michael Boatman’s net worth.

Boatman continued to hone his acting skills through the 1990s, appearing in hit TV series including “Quantum Leap”, “The Jackie Thomas Show” and “Muscle”, as well as movies “The Glass Shield” (1994) and “The Peacemaker” (1997). However, his big breakthrough came in 1996 when he got the role of Carter Haywood in ABC’s sitcom “Spin City”; for appearing in 145 episodes through its six seasons, Michael was honored with four consecutive Image Award nominations, between 1998 and 2001. During this period, Michael was also appearing in another hit TV series – HBO’s sport sitcom “Arli$$” in which he played Stanley Babson, and for which was nominated for two Image Awards as well as for NAMIC Vision Award. It is certain that all these achievements helped Michael Boatman to dramatically improve the size of his wealth.

To this day, he has managed to maintain an uninterrupted streak of television appearances, adding several more memorable roles to his professional acting portfolio, such as in “Sherri”, “Anger Management”, “The Good Wife”, “Instant Mom” as well as “The Good Fight”, and more recently “Madam Secretary” and “The Other F Word”. Michael has also appeared in guest roles in “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”, “Gossip Girl”, “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Hannah Montana”. Doubtlessly, all these accomplishments have significantly increased the total of Michael Boatman’s net worth.

Apart from acting, Michael has written a variety of short splatterpunk horror stories, which were released in 2007 as a collection entitled “God Laughs When You Die”. His debut, humoristic horror novel “The Revenant Rod” hit the bookshelves in 2009. All these ventures have certainly boosted Michael Boatman’s revenues too.

When it comes to his personal life, Michael Boatman has been married since 1992, to Myrna Forney, with whom he has welcomed four children.
