Ashton Kutcher is winning the cast, workers and producers of the shows over.  After just one episode, Kutcher is getting a pay raise for "2 And A Half Men" replacing Charlie Sheen.

Charlie Sheen was the highest paid actor on Television, pulling in a cool $1.25 million per episode and with back-end money, was getting close to $2 million per episode. 

Although Ashton is pulling in around $825,000 per episode, he will get the back-end deals that Sheen was getting which will put Ashton at around $1 million per episode. 

We wonder if he sings "Teenage Dream" by Katy Perry every morning when he wakes up next to Demi Moore?  Seriously.  He is not only the highest paid actor on TV, but also one of the luckiest.-Dr.FB

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
