It is reported that Manuel Garcia-Rulfo has a net worth of around $8 million.

He has been around the industry since then and was able to break into Hollywood during the 2010s, all while continuing his career as an actor in Mexico.

Manuel Garcia-Rulfo Height

One of the things that people were quick to notice about Mickey Haller in The Lincoln Lawyer is that he is seemingly a lot taller than everyone else in the series to the point that anyone would wonder whether or not Haller is simply tall or that everyone else on the series was short. But the truth is that Manuel Garcia-Rulfo is actually a tall actor.

At 6’2”, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo is an imposing specimen because he is tall and well-built.

After studying English, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo went to Universidad del Valle de Atemajac, where he majored in communications. However, he realized that he loved filmmaking, and that was what prompted him to study at the New York Film Academy. Still, he went back home to Mexico so that he could continue his career as an actor there before Hollywood came calling after he had made a career in his home country as a successful actor.
