Forbes: Highest Paid TV Actors

Posted: Updated:

TV actors make you think they are the characters they play, but behind the role, they are real people, raking in a lot of money.

Forbes broke down the list of the top earners last year.

Patrick Dempsey plays the McDreamy Dr. Shepherd in Grey's Anatomy. He is doing pretty well for himself. In fact, he made 13-million-dollars last year.

Next on the list is a tie between Mark Harmon and Neil Patrick Harris. They both brought in $15 million. Harmon stars in NCIS and Harris stars in how I met your mother

This one may surprise you. The third highest earner last year was Ray Romano with $16-million. He appeared in a recurring role in the TV show "parenthood."

The cast of Two And A Half Men are making serious money. Jon Cryer was the second highest paid TV actor last year, raking in $21 million.

Who beat him? His co-star, of course.

Ashton Kutcher made $24 million last year, topping the list. The man he replaced, Charlie Sheen, previously held the spot. Sheen is still on the list, but at number ten. Costar Angus Jones is also on the list, at seventh.
