McGill grew up in San Antonio, where he attended Douglas MacArthur High School, and upon matriculating, he enrolled at the University of Texas at Austin, obtaining a degree in drama; his interest in acting had started already in elementary school. He later made his professional acting debut as a member of the National Shakespeare Company in Washington, D.C, appearing in a number of theatrical productions. He made his film debut with a small part in the 1977 comedy film “Handle With Care”. His net worth was established.

McGill’s breakthrough role came the following year, playing Daniel Simpson – ‘D-Day’ in the “National Lampoon’s Animal House” classic. The role, which he took out of desperation as a young unemployed actor, turned out to be one of his best-known ones, enabling him to achieve a great level of popularity and recognition.

Since then he has gone on to work steadily in both films and on television. During the ’80s he landed parts in films such as “Silkwood”, “Into the Night”, “No Mercy” and “Three Fugitives”, to name a few. In 1985 he was cast in the ABC action-adventure television series “MacGyver”, playing the title character’s best friend Jack Dalton for seven seasons until 1992. The series served as a perfect way for McGill to reinforce his status in the acting world and to additionally improve his wealth.

The next decade saw the actor landing parts in films such as “The Last Boy Scout”, “My Cousin Vinny”, “Timecop” and “Rosewood”, and he also appeared in several television series, including “Quantum Leap”, “Walker, Texas Ranger”, “Home Improvement” and “Babylon 5”.

In 1999 McGill played Ron Motley in Michael Mann’s drama film “The Insider”, and went on to work with the director on his other two projects, the 2001 biographical sports drama film “Ali”, in which he played Bradley, and the 2004 neo-noir crime thriller, “Collateral”, in which he portrayed Frank Pedrosa. In the meantime, he appeared in numerous other films as well as in several television films, including “61”, “Path to War” and “Live from Baghdad”. All contributed to his wealth.

In the years since, McGill has had his hand in numerous projects, both on big and small screens. He landed supporting roles in films like “The Good Life”, “W.”, “The Lookout”, “Obsessed” and “Law Abiding Citizen”, and appeared in series such as “Numbers”, “Psych”, “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” and “No Ordinary Family”.

In 2010 he was cast in the TNT television series “Rizzoli & Isles”, playing Vince Korsak, a veteran Boston Police Homicide Detective for seven seasons until 2016. Meanwhile, he played Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton in Steven Spielberg’s epic drama “Lincoln”, and portrayed Lt. Brooks in the action comedy film “Ride Along”. Tackling a variety of projects has enabled McGill to significantly advance his Hollywood status and to improve his net worth.

His most recent film involvement was in the 2016 action comedy “Ride Along 2”, and his last television appearance was in an episode of the series “Blue Bloods” the same year.

When it comes to his private life, McGill has been married to Gloria Lee since 1994. Other details regarding his personal life have not been revealed to the media.

1Often plays real life figures such as politicians and other figures of authority.
2Frequently cast in 'Michael Mann' films.
1(2012, on The Hand and working with Oliver Stone) I was looking for any A-features, and Michael Caine really made it an A-feature. So I thought, "Well, sure, that'd be great!" And it was a great experience. I really loved working with Michael Caine. He's a really skilled and experienced actor. I learn something from everybody, but when you work with somebody like that, you actually learn things you can put in your toolbox, things about craft. Not necessarily life lessons, but actual things he knows that you can pick up. To watch Oliver (Stone) direct his first film-I wouldn't change anything. I was really glad to be there, and then I was glad to see him again when we did W. He's a really smart guy, he's a really good writer, and...He has a certain kind of personality. But I really enjoy him. He's not everybody's cup of tea, but I like him a lot.
2(2012, on handling rejection) One of the defense mechanisms I have for the difficulties in the business, one of which is rejection, is that if I do the work, I go in, and I'm prepared and I audition and they don't hire me, I'm always just amazed, thinking, "Wow! For that money, they could've had Bruce McGill, and they didn't take me? I just think that's amazing. Well, too bad for them." Rather than go, "Oh, what did I do wrong?" I just don't do that. I don't go down that road. So it's a built-in defense mechanism, but also, I feel that way. I feel like with what I know and what I can deliver, if I look enough like the guy they want to even have me in, and they don't use me, then that's their shortcoming. It's a reflection on their inability to see what's right in front of them rather than my inability to get the role.
3(2012, on Matchstick Men) I think it's one of a handful of the best movies I've done. I think it's one of Nic Cage's top performances. Sam Rockwell and myself and Nic just loved that movie. It's a really good grown-up comedy. I just think the world of that. And to play the two realities at all times was very liberating.
1Played U.S. President Calvin Coolidge in For Greater Glory: The True Story of Cristiada (2012). He has also played members of three Presidential Cabinets: Edwin Stanton in Lincoln (2012), George Tenet in W. (2008), and George Ball in 'Path to War (2002)(TV)'.
