Wilford Brimley is an American actor and has a net worth of $6 million. Wilford Brimley earned his net worth as an actor. He worked as a ranch hand, wrangler, blacksmith, and a bodyguard for Howard Hughes. Robert Redford employed him on several occasions, first as a farmer in "The Electric Horseman" (1979) and later in "Brubaker" (1980), before giving Brimley one of his best roles as the crusty manager of a struggling baseball farm team in Barry Levinson's "The Natural" (1984). A stout, often bespectacled, character actor of film and TV with a walrus mustache and a flair for accents, he proved himself adept at playing endearing curmudgeons, giving perhaps his most memorable performance as one of the increasingly frisky senior citizens in Ron Howard's "Cocoon" (1985) and its sequel "Cocoon: The Return" (1988). His first exposure to show business was shoeing horses for stables that furnished animals for movie and TV Westerns. When he returned to Los Angeles after living in Idaho for a few years, he began working as a riding extra for Westerns during the mid-1960s and formed a lasting friendship with the up-and-coming actor Robert Duvall who urged the cowboy to pursue acting as a career. He has appeared on TV in movies like CBS's "Blood River" (1991) and TNT's "The Good Old Boys" (1995), and his ongoing role as Quaker Oats' spokesman has kept him solidly in the public eye. He was diagnosed with diabetes in 1979, and he began working to raise awareness of the disease. The American Diabetes Association honored him in 2008 with an award to recognize his lifetime of service. He spoke against the banning of cockfighting in New Mexico on the basis of his support of individual rights. Wilford Brimley named Allen Wilford Brimley was born on September 27, 1934 in Salt Lake City, Utah.
