Ashton Kutcher & Hugh Laurie top highest paid actors list
Ashton Kutcher has joined Hugh Laurie as the
highest paid actor on TV, according to a new magazine study.
Both stars will earn $700,000-per-episode for
Two and a Half Men and House, respectively, when the two high-rated
shows return to TV next month (Sep11), but Ashton Kutcher also
reportedly has a deal in place, where he'll profit further if his
sitcom is a hit.
Ashton Kutcher is replacing fired Charlie
Sheen on Two and a Half Men.
However, both actors' 2011/2012 TV salaries
won't match Simon Cowell's package when he kicks off his new X
Factor show - the study, carried out by TV Guide magazine, suggests
he's on a whopping $75 million -per-year.
And the music mogul's replacement on American
Idol, Jennifer Lopez, has signed a new deal to return to the talent
show reportedly worth $20 million for the second season.
Also among the big TV earners: chat show
hosts David Letterman and Jay Leno bring in $28 million and $25
million annually, NCIS star Mark Harmon ($500,000-per-episode), and
Kutcher's Two and a Half Men sidekick Jon Cryer
