Justin Berfield Net Worth $10 Million
Justin Berfield was born to Eric Berfield and Gail Stark, and is the younger brother of actor Lorne Berfield. Justin started his acting career as a child actor when he was signed to a contract for taking part in commercials during the 1990s when he was only five years old, and he has appeared in over 20 national television commercials, such as for Folgers coffee and Colgate toothpaste; thus he was known at that time by nickname “The Commercial Kid”. With these appearances his net worth started growing.
Soon after, Justin earned his debut appearance in the TV series “Harball” (1994). In the same year he was featured as Bob Bowman in “The God Life”, “The Boys Are Back” playing Timmy Flint, and in the role of Jason Booker in “The Mommies” (1994-1996). After these first appearances, his career has been in constant rise, and so has his net worth.
In 1995, Justin played the lead role of Ross Malloy in the American TV sitcom entitled “Unhappily Ever After”, which increased his net worth by a large margin. Furthermore, from 1996 to 1999, he appeared in the TV series “Duckman: Private Dick/Family Man” and three films – “Mom, Can I Keep Her?” as Timmy Blair, “The Kid With X-ray Eyes” as Bobby Taylor, and “Invisible Mom II” playing Eddie Brown. All these appearances added a lot to his net worth.
Justin’s life completely changed at the beginning of 2000s, when he was cast as Reese Wilkerson, Malcolm’s older brother, in the highly popular TV sitcom named “Malcolm In The Middle”, created by Linwood Boomer. This role expanded his net worth, especially as he won two awards – in 2000 the YoungStar Award in the category of Best Young Ensemble Cast: Television, and in 2003 Young Artist Award in the category of Best Ensemble in a TV Series. Besides that, he featured in “Wanted” (2000), “Max Keeble’s Big Move” (2001), “Who’s Your Daddy?” (2004), among others.
In addition to his acting career, Lucas Till has also worked as a producer for several projects, particularly “Filthy Rich: Cattle Drive” (2005), “The Pet Detective” (2007), “Sons Of Tucson” (2010), and “Virgin Produced: Comedy Vault” (2012), which added a considerable amount to his net worth. In 2004 he established, with Jason Felts, two production companies named J2 Pictures and J2TV.
When it comes to his personal life, apart from the usual trivia, there is no information in the media about Justin Berfield’s private affairs.

On the set I'm really quiet. Instead of chatting it up between takes I'm always watching and listening. The wheels are spinning in my head all the time.
