Ashton Kutcher may have replaced Charlie Sheen as the lead in hit US comedy Two And A Half Men, but the actor hasn’t stopped there! It turns out that Ashton has also knocked Charlie ‘Tiger Blood’ Sheen from his highly coveted position of television’s highest paid actor…
We’re guessing that’ll help Ashton Kutcher foot the bill on his many Mila Kunis dates then!
According to Forbes’ annual survey, it seems as if Ashton Kutcher is officially television’s highest-paid actor, thanks to his leading role in Two And A Half Men.
Forbes have estimated that Ashton earned a massive $24 million between May 2011 and May 2012, while Sheen – who once earned $40 million a year for his TV appearances – didn’t even scrape it into thhe top 10 highest paid television actors of all time!
However, judging from the success of Sheen’s brand new telly show Anger Management, we have a feeling that the exccentric actor could be set to give Ashton Kutcher a (very literal) run for his money come 2013.
Hugh Laurie, who continues to wow US fans for his titular role in medical drama House, and Ray Romano of Men of a Certain Age, came close behind Ashton Kutcher with a cool $18 million each to their name for this year’s takings.
Maybe we should all begin pursuing a career in US television, stat!Oct 17, 2012
