It appears Ashton Kutcher
will soon have two new roles…one on Two and a Half Men.
The other? TV’s
highest-paid sitcom star.
How high are we talkin’?
Only about $700,000 per
episode. That’s according to a new
TV Guide report.
Sure, it’s not the 1.2
million Charlie Sheen was raking in for the half-hour comedy but it’s
significantly more than that of other TV talent.
For example, Ted Danson, CSI’s
new series regular
will be taking $225,000 to the bank every episode, along with Keifer Sutherland
on the new FOX drama Touch.
CBS Entertainment President
Nina Tassler thinks Kutcher is totally worth it though and at a recent
Television Critics Association panel said “there is great value in hiring an
actor like Ashton Kutcher.”
Great value as in $700,000
Guess we’ll know soon
