(Aug. 27, 2015) – When it comes to making money, the stars of “The Big Bang Theory” are certainly no slackers.
Actor Jim Parsons leads the list of highest-paid TV actors compiled by Forbes. Parsons earned $29 million last year. Under a new contract, he’s earning a million dollars an episode plus more than one-percent of the show’s profits.
His co-stars are raking it in, too.
Johnny Galecki is second on Forbes’ list with $27 million while Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar are tied for third with $20 million.
Mark Harmon from NCIS and Ashton Kutcher are also in that third-place tie, making $20 million, according to Forbes.
