He first became well-known for playing the sassy and rebellious Steven Hyde on the hit sitcom “That ’70s Show.” People fell in love with Masterson because of how charismatic he was on the show. He became a household name during the show’s run from 1998 to 2006.
Years after “That ’70s Show” became a hit, Masterson went into movies and starred in movies like “Face/Off,” “Dracula 2000,” and “The Brooklyn Heist.” Taking on different roles that let him explore different genres and characters showed how versatile he was.
Masterson was very good at acting, but he also followed his love of music. He began a successful career as a disc jockey going by the name DJ Mom Jeans. Music fans liked Masterson’s DJ sets, and he has played at well-known events and venues all over the world.
Danny sold a house in Los Angeles on Holly Mont Drive for $1.595 million in 2007. The house has four bedrooms, a pool, a hot tub, a two-car garage, and a fireplace made of marble and gold leaf. In 1998, he bought the house for $560,000.
That was right after he got his well-paid job on “That ’70s Show.” Now, Masterson had already put money into a number of properties, such as six apartments and a few small apartment buildings. Danny bought an apartment in Los Angeles in 2003. He sold it to Laura Prepon for $165,000 less than a year later.
Masterson’s home in Hollywood Hills and his ongoing court case for rape charges were linked for a number of years. In 2020, he was renting out his home on Hollyridge Drive and living in a house in Santa Ynez, which is in Santa Barbara County. In 2007, he paid $2.995 million for this 4,323-square-foot house that used to belong to Chuck Berry.
Danny posted a $3.3 million bond to get out of jail after being arrested for rape in June 2020. The home on Hollyridge Drive was used to keep the bond safe.
Masterson used to sue several times, saying that the Bank of New York Mellon and the Mortgage Electronic Registrations Systems (MERS) made mistakes on the paperwork they sent him when he was getting a mortgage. Because of these things, Danny said, he no longer had to make payments on the house. One lawyer said, “Plaintiffs appear to be merely throwing arguments against the wall in the hope that they can come up with some basis for canceling their mortgage loan without full repayment.” Such motions were repeatedly turned down.
