A vigilant and talented stage artist who made a name for himself as Tom Collins of Rent on Broadway, Jesse L. Martin now plies his image as Detective Ed in TV series Law and Order. The Tony Award recipient was shy in his early career which is hard to predict by his dominant and impressive performances on a TV show and stage drama. Now the producer cast him simply to up the rating and bring a flare to the show.

Career and Progression:

Martin completed his education in Buffalo Academy of Visual Arts and Performing Arts, New York where he found his true self. Jesse was a shy person during his early career; it wasn’t until his mentor cast him as a pastor in after school drama. After his graduation from New York University, he did mention worthy stage work like Rent, Timons of Athens, and Romeo and Juliet. The acting Maestro got several awards including Tony Awards and Pulitzer Awards for 1990’s update of Puccini’s La Boheme.

He is now famous as Detective Ed Green in Law and Order and Detective Joe West in The Flash. Jesse got hooked up for the first TV series in the form of New York Undercover. The detective is now busy with his next venture as Martin Gaye in Sexual Healing.

How Much is Detective Ed’s Net Worth and Salary?

The talented stage artist and TV personality have accomplished the unachievable. His family had the unfortunate background, and Jesse is now charging $100 thousand per episode, and the producer gets every penny of it back as the actor like the rating of the show by miles.

The actor who is racking a handsome salary has a current net worth of $10 million.

Is Jesse a Married Man?

It’s amazingly surprising that the actor of his stature has been able to keep his life intact and out of the sight of media. He rarely gives insight into his personal life. The Tom Collins of the famous Rent was reportedly in a relationship with Venessa Riding in 2006, but the couple didn’t get married as they parted their way before sharing vows. As of now, he is single and doesn’t have a wife.

After his breakup with Venessa, he has never been linked to anyone that let people wild space to speculate about his sexual orientation. As of now, he has declared himself to be gay or straight while the fans are still desperately trying to find out.
