Fans are hooked on the new Netflix legal thriller series The Lincoln Lawyer and its chauffeur-driven protagonist Mickey Haller, played by Manuel Garcia-Rulfo.
For the actor heading up the chart-topping drama, it is the biggest career break to date. His role in the show is the continuation of a story first seen on screen in 2011, with Matthew McConaughey then depicting Haller, a defence attorney with a dodgy client.
But it is by no means Garcia-Rulfo’s first hit. Keen fans will remember Garcia-Rulfo as one of the main characters in the 2016 remake of the hit Western action film The Magnificent Seven, as well as key roles in 2014 drama Cake and thriller 6 Underground.
What Is Manuel Garcia-Rulfo’s Net Worth?
As of 2022, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo has an estimated net worth of $8 million (£6.5 million), according to Wealthy Spy.
But after putting in a career-defining performance in The Lincoln Lawyer, we can expect to see a lot more of the 41-year-old actor in coming years.
The Mexican actor grew up on a ranch in western Mexico before moving to Vermont to study English, and honing his craft at the New York Film Academy.
It all built up to his role in the smash hit legal drama. The drama has done so well that after a lot of speculation, Netflix confirmed that a second season is on the cards.
The new season will be based off the fourth book in Michael Connelly’s Lincoln Lawyer series, titled The Fifth Witness.
With Garcia-Rulfo as the heartthrob lawyer, we’ll be expecting the return of Neve Campbell as Maggie, Becki Newton as Lorna, Angus Sampson as Cisco, and Jazz Raycoleas as Izzy in the second season.
