Last year, Charlies Sheen easily landed himself at the top of the list, but a lot of things can change in just a year. In 2012, Sheen didn’t even place anywhere on the list. However, there is a fundamental difference that should ease Sheen’s mind. When he placed highest on the list in 2011 for “Two and a Half Men,” his annual salary was $40 million. Kutcher’s salary for that same show is nearly half that at $24 million.
The other actors finishing out the list of the top 10 are Hugh Laurie and Ray Romano, who tied at $18 million; Alec Baldwin and Mark Harmon, who tied at $15 million; Tim Allen, $14 million; Jon Cryer, $13 million; Patrick Dempsey, $12 million; and Jim Parsons and his co-star Johnny Galecki, who tied at $8 million.
