Ashton Kutcher named highest paid TV actor of 2012

Washington: Ashton Kutcher, who reportedly made 24 million dollars between May 2011 and May 2012, has been named as the highest-paid actor on TV by Forbes.

The magazine took into account Kutcher’s investments, film salaries and his reported 700,000-dollar an episode salary for ‘Two and a Half Men,’ the Huffington Post reported.

The 34-year-old actor replaced last year’s top earner Charlie Sheen, who is nowhere to be seen this year after leaving ‘Two and a Half Men.’

His co-star, recent Emmy winner Jon Cryer, also made the list with 13 million dollars a year.

More of the networks’ actors - Mark Harmon, Jason Segel and the stars of ‘The Big Bang Theory’ - also made the list.
