TV’s Highest Paid Actor Is…

Who’s the highest paid actor on TV now that Charlie Sheen isn’t raking in a modest $1.2 mil per episode?

Here’s a hint: He’s not actually on TV… yet.

Ashton Kutcher tops TV Guide’s list of top earners. The actor, who will fill Sheen’s absence on “Two and a Half Men” as Internet billionaire Walden Schmidt, will earn $700,000 per episode.

Quite a bit higher than the $125,000 per episode that TV Guide says most lead actors make – or $150,000 for cable stars.

Moral of the story: If you’re in need of some cash, act opposite Jon Cryer on “Two and a Half Men.”
