Cirroc Lofton Took An Acting Break, But What About His Net Worth?
Cirroc Lofton first rose to popularity after playing Jake Sisko, the son of Ben Sisko, in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
Lofton was only fourteen years old when he first played the part in 1993 and was 21 when the show ended in 1999.
Throughout the seven years that the show aired, he appeared in 173 of the total 176 episodes. Even after the show’s conclusion, Lofton continued acting until 2008 when he suddenly took almost a decade-long break from it.
But even during that time, the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine’s actor did not rest as he ventured into some other field—most notably, into the restaurant business.
Cirroc Lofton opened Cafe Cirroc after Taking a Break from Acting
During an interview with Startrek in 2010, Cirroc Lofton revealed what he had been up to after taking a break from acting for the first time. He spoke about his restaurant, Cafe Cirroc, located in Culver City, near Playa Del Ray. He went on to talk about what the cafe served:
...We have gelato, which is Italian ice cream. We have sandwiches. We have croissants and fresh coffee, espresso, cappuccinos. And right next door, we have a really cute wine bar. So you can go in, have a nice glass of wine and enjoy some live music, karaoke. We do it all.
In 2014, Cafe Ciccoc expanded its business replacing another restaurant named Bistro Laurent after the latter closed unceremoniously. The latter had to shut down because it failed to live up to its plan of reemerging to previous success. Cafe Cirroc changed to a hookah bar and cafe during that time.
However, as of now, Lofton's restaurant Cafe Ciccoc is closed according to Yelp.com. We couldn't trace the reasons behind its closure.
Cirroc Planned to Release a Rap Album
Back in 2005, Lofton told Sci Fi Wire that he had been working on a rap album called Divine Intervention. Then, he had been working on the music for the album for six or seven years (started in 1998 or 1999) and hoped to release it in September of 2005 via Infinity World Entertainment.
The Star Trek: Deep Space Nine star went on to reveal that one of the beats would use the original Star Trek theme song and have that beat in a hip-hop type of mode. Unfortunately, the album did not come to fruition.
Talking with Startrek in 2010, he was asked about the CD he had been recording and Lofton answered as such, “I actually finished that CD. It’s being mixed and mastered now and I’m probably going to release it real soon, in December.”
"I’ve just been busy. Life has been a roller coaster. I found somebody really special that I’ve decided to spend my life with, and we have something really cool. So I’m engaged. She’s really helped me settle down in a lot of ways and helped me harness my focus. I’ve finished my music. I’ve got this restaurant going, which will also be a platform for me to do live music. I’m going to keep moving forward and doing the things I’m passionate about: acting, writing scripts, music, running the restaurant, meeting people, entertaining, having fun and also playing basketball, he added.
