What Do TV Stars Earn?
Do you think your favorite TV star is worth what they make? I know it is very subjective, or is it? Brad Pitt earns a cool $20 million for a film. They work long 10-12 hr days with lots of down time as things are prepped. What About TV stars?
Charlie Sheen for "Two and a Half men" earned $40 million in his last year, Ashton Kutcher, who is now on the show, earns $24 million. Ray Romano earns $18 million, Alec Baldwin, Mark Harmon are at $15 million. Lesser actors, like Jim Parsons of "Big Bang" earn $8 million.
TV actors often are not as good as movie actors, or at least, many fail to make a successful transition and I wonder what would happen if all the TV studios had a salary cap, say $10 million, would the TV shows and their sponsors continue on? I guess it depends on how hungry the actors are. Isn't earning $8 million a year for a stupid TV show plenty, even to an actor who has earned more. I mean, even a million bucks is a considerable amount of money to invest and make last. I am sure all actors feel the same when they first made that amount. Do they really need to earn that much?
