“Two and a Half Men” Stars Top “Forbes'” List of TV’s Highest-Paid Actors
(NEW YORK) — It’s easy to see that the stars of Two and a Half Men have cashed in on the success of the CBS sitcom. Ashton Kutcher, Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones are all included on Forbes‘ latest list of TV’s highest-paid actors.
Kutcher leads the way, having earned an estimated $24 million between June 2012 and June 2013. That takes into account his work on Two and a Half Men as well as other “entertainment-related endeavors,” such as his starring role in the Steve Jobs biopic Jobs, which was released in August.
Cryer ranks second on the list, having raked in $21 million. Jones, who is no longer a regular cast member, is tied for seventh, with $11 million. Unlike Kutcher, both actors have been on the show since the beginning, so they have a nice financial stake in all of the Two and a Half Men episodes that air in syndication.
Here are TV’s highest-paid actors, according to Forbes:
- Ashton Kutcher, $24 million
- Jon Cryer, $21 million
- Ray Romano, $16 million
- Neil Patrick Harris, $15 million
- Mark Harmon, $15 million
- Patrick Dempsey, $13 million
- Tim Allen, $11 million (tied)
- Angus T. Jones, $11 million (tied)
- Michael C. Hall, $10 million (tied)
- Charlie Sheen, $10 million (tied)
