Now aged 83, Norris made his last cinematic appearance in 2012's "The Expendables 2". Despite his role being minor, his character proves pivotally instrumental, saving the group led by Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) from a dire situation. As spaghetti western music plays, Norris springs into action, enough to destroy a tank and wipe out all enemies within seconds.

This brief performance demonstrated Norris's good humor and self-deprecation, which were not always his trademarks. During the filming of "Walker, Texas Ranger" (1993 – 2001), media frequently reported that Norris struggled to separate himself from his on-screen persona.

In the '90s, "Walker, Texas Ranger" consistently hit high viewership numbers on CBS, making Norris one of the highest-paid TV actors during that time. The series, more than his '80s film work, propelled Norris to his current status as a social media icon.

Chuck Norris's Retirement

Norris spends his retirement years in Texas, residing on his Lone Wolf ranch (the name hints to one of his best movies, "Lone Wolf McQuade"). Norris now manages the CForce water bottling company, a family-run business. (The company's name derives from the "Delta Force" movie series)

As per "Celebrity Net Worth", Chuck Norris' estimated net worth lies around $70 million. While not on par with the fortunes amassed by action giants like Arnold Schwarzenegger or Sylvester Stallone (where sums reach $500 million), it still exceeds Jean-Claude Van Damme's or Steven Seagal's lifetime earnings.
