Forget the Forbes’ Cash Kings 2011 list — Ashton Kutcher is planking on nearly a milli for an episode on Two and A Half Men!
According to TMZ, Ashton Kutcher is an instant hit on “Two and a Half Men,” and he’s being handsomely rewarded with a paycheck that approaches a million bucks an episode.
There are reports that he’s raking in $700,000, but we know it’s much higher. Ashton is actually getting between $800,000 and $900,000 an episode.
True enough … Charlie Sheen was making a lot more — $1.25 million an episode, plus profit sharing which brought him to $2 million per show. We’re told Ashton will get the often-elusive “back end” profits as well. – TMZ
