Cast Of The Mentalist: How Much Are They Worth Now?Published on August 10, 2016.
There are a lot of police procedural dramas to sort through on TV, but The Mentalist was one of the best. From 2008 to 2015, the series ran for 7 seasons on CBS and garnered a large and loyal fanbase along the way. The show was clever as Simon Baker perfectly portrayed the “psychic” turned CBI consultant, and had the perfect cast chemistry to execute the clever and at times emotional storylines perfectly. It has already been one year since the show came to an end and all of the stars have moved on. Check out how much the cast of The Mentalist is worth now!

He began his on-camera career with a role on MASH in 1981 and has appeared in many films and series, but most notably 24, Salem, Being Human, Nikita, Taken and Air Force One.
