Drake-Bell-Spider-Man-e1311518680264Ultimate Spider-Man voice actor Drake Bell has filed for bankruptcy. Bell voices Spider-Man on the cartoon and it seems he was spending more than he made in 2013 according to US Weekly.  I think he needs to ask Marvel for a raise.

Here are how the numbers work out. 

*Owes $1.5 million dollars
*2012 Earnings $408,000
*2013 Earnings: $14,099
*Monthly Expenses $18,000
*Monthly Income $2,920

I think you could modify Uncle Ben’s speech in this instance to say “With great power, comes great financial responsibility.”

    He should’ve asked JJJ for an advance.

    I remember reading years ago that the voice actor who did Fufur on NBC Saturday Morning cartoons had the same problem going into season 2. As a result he ended up keeping all of his earnings in the final 3rd season and settled his debts in 4 years and then was only spending money on needed items afterward with his future work.

    “it seems he was spending more than he made in 2013…”

    … and here is where my sympathy ends. You’re in trouble, because you did something you shouldn’t have. Or was he trying to buy health isurance? Cause that might explain things too.

    … health care is really expensive.

    Well now that the show has been renewed, maybe he<ll be able to settle his debt and learn an important lesson about responsability

    This is what happens when you try to live like an A-list celebrity when you are C-list at best.

    How did he only make $14,099 in all of 2013??

    You can work at a fast food place part-time and make more than that in a year.

    $18,000 in monthly expenses… Wow.

  9. #9 RDMacQ says:

    Wow. I can’t believe I’m making as much if not more money than the guy voicing Spider-Man.

  10. #10 Lockdown says:

    Same here RD. I have a house, wife and a kid and my monthly expenses don’t come close to 18 grand.

    It wasn’t even like he just overspent. He REALLY overspent. $1.5 million. Jeez. Presumably he’s getting more cash than just from his voice acting on USM.

    Wow, just wow.

    Though with season 3, hopefully he can pull himself out of debt… But dayum, over 1 million…….
