Will Ferrell still hasn’t shaken off the disaster that was “Land of the Lost” — at least in terms of his box-office worth.
For the second year in a row, Ferrell ranks first on Forbes magazine’s list of the most overpaid actors in Hollywood. According to the mag’s number-crunching, his movies in the past five years have earned only $3.35 for every dollar he was paid, the lowest ratio among any of showbiz’s biggest earners.

By contrast, “Transformers” star Shia LaBeouf was the best value among the top-earning actors (i.e., he earned relatively small salaries compared to what his movies raked in), earning $81 in profits for studios for every buck he was paid.
