A lot of people with Hulu subscriptions have likely caught an episode or two of the CBS sitcom Young Sheldon since it premiered in 2017. The Big Bang Theory spinoff stars Iain Armitage in the leading role as the titular character, along with Lance Barber as Sheldon's father, George Cooper, who works as the coach of the high school football team.
With the success of Young Sheldon, fans naturally want to know more about its stars. On that note, here's what we know about Lance Barber, including his net worth.

Per the Battle Creek Enquirer, when Lance was only 7 years old, he was wildly impressed by a live performance of Grease at the Barn Theater in Battle Creek, Mich. He went on to perform in various school productions while in the process of earning his associates degree at Kellogg Community College. Moving to Chicago was a step in the right direction for Lance because he was able to spend a few years of his life working his way to the top with the Second City Improvisational Comedy Troupe.
Proving you know how to keep up with funny jokes on the spot isn’t easy for everyone, but for Lance, this was something he clearly studied to perfection. After learning quite a bit of important acting knowledge in Chicago, Lance decided to move to Los Angeles. The move to LA was a brilliant call to make because he was able to snag a role on a WB show called On the Spot in 2003.

On his Instagram, Lance posts pictures to promote the projects he’s working on, pictures with his kids, and even cute pictures with puppies! Although the character he plays on Young Sheldon might be a little annoying sometimes, Lance seems to be an all-around great guy in real life.
