Forbes magazine released their results for the highest paid actor today and it should come as no surprise that Leonardo DiCaprio tops the list over Johnny Depp, Adam Sandler, and others.

DiCaprio pulled in $77 million alone for "Shutter Island" and "Inception" last year.  He has 3 upcoming movies set to keep him on top; J. Edgar,” “The Great Gatsby,” and “Django Unchained.”

Johnny Depp was the number 1 highest paid actor last year but he is number 2 this year.  You would still trade places with him regardless.

A little surprising at least to me is that Adam Sandler is number 3 on the highest paid actors list.  Next thing you will tell me is that David Spade was 4th.

Who is your top actor on this list?  Dicaprio?  Depp?  Or Sandler?-Dr.FB

Charlie Sheen will be returning to your TV screen as he just signed a TV deal for "Anger Management" although no network has been announced yet.  "Anger Management" will be based on the movie with the same name that starred Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler.  The show will be produced by the movie's producer and Sheen's friend Joe Roth.

Charlie Sheen will have a "significant ownership stake" in the show as well.  This comes on the heels of Charlie being fired from CBS #1 comedy "2 And A Half Men" last spring. 

Sheen released this statement about his return to Television;

“I chose Anger Management because, while it might be a big stretch for me to play a guy with serious anger management issues, I think it is a great concept. It also provides me with real ownership in the series, a certain amount of creative control and the chance to be back in business with one of my favorite movie producers of all time, Joe Roth.”

Duh, winning! Hmm.  I seriously thought it might be longer until Charlie got his own show again.  Roth is taking a chance that Charlie will behave and this show will succeed.

Will YOU watch?-Dr.FB

We told you a few weeks ago that we had some Eminem news for you. I was waiting for a friend to give some inside info but he has been a little lazy.

Eminem has a cameo in the upcoming Adam Sandler movie "Funny People" directed by Judd Apatow.  We hear he is funny as hell and his cameo is very much a memorable one, close to stealing the movie but not quite.

I am trying to find out more info and when I do, I will get it to you.  For now, enjoy the still from the movie.-Dr.FB
