"Two and a Half Men" Stars Top "Forbes'" List of TV's Highest-Paid Actors

Michael Yarish/Warner Bros.(NEW YORK) -- It's easy to see that the stars of Two and a Half Men have cashed in on the success of the CBS sitcom. Ashton Kutcher, Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones are all included on Forbes' latest list of TV's highest-paid actors.

Kutcher leads the way, having earned an estimated $24 million between June 2012 and June 2013. That takes into account his work on Two and a Half Men as well as other "entertainment-related endeavors," such as his starring role in the Steve Jobs biopic Jobs, which was released in August.

Cryer ranks second on the list, having raked in $21 million. Jones, who is no longer a regular cast member, is tied for seventh, with $11 million. Unlike Kutcher, both actors have been on the show since the beginning, so they have a nice financial stake in all of the Two and a Half Men episodes that air in syndication.

Here are TV's highest-paid actors, according to Forbes:

  1. Ashton Kutcher, $24 million
  2. Jon Cryer, $21 million
  3. Ray Romano, $16 million
  4. Neil Patrick Harris, $15 million
  5. Mark Harmon, $15 million
  6. Patrick Dempsey, $13 million
  7. Tim Allen, $11 million (tied)
  8. Angus T. Jones, $11 million (tied)
  9. Michael C. Hall, $10 million (tied)
  10. Charlie Sheen, $10 million (tied)
