Ashton Kutcher is the highest paid actor on television, according to Forbes’ 2013 list. The magazine says “TV’s highest-paid actor is laughing all the way to the bank since replacing [Charlie] Sheen on ‘Two and a Half Men’ after the troubled star’s 2011 flameout.”
But not far behind Kutcher is his “Men” co-star, Jon Cryer, who Forbes reports rakes in $21 million per year. Charlie Sheen, who topped the list during his time on the CBS sitcom is now in the No. 10 spot with his starring role on FX’s “Anger Management.”
The No. 3 spot on the Highest paid TV actors list belong to Ray Romano, who banks on the syndication of his former sitcom, “Everybody Loves Raymond” to the tune of $16 million per year. Tying for fourth place are “NCIS” star Mark Harmon and “How I Met Your Mother’s” Neil Patrick Harris.
In September, Forbes released their list of the highest paid TV actresses. “Modern Family’s” Sofia Vergara takes the top spot.
