Jim Parsons and 'The Big Bang Theory' cast top list of highest paid TV actors

UPI News Service, 09/28/2017 

Jim Parsons has taken the number one spot atop Forbes annual highest paid TV actors list ahead of his "The Big Bang Theory" co-stars Johnny Galecki, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar.

The list, released Thursday, states that Parsons earned $27.5 million in the year leading up to June 1.

Parsons, who makes $1 million per episode of "The Big Bang Theory" along with the other principal stars, came out on top due to his endorsement deal with Intel, role in Oscar-nominated film "Hidden Figures" and time on Sirius radio.

Parsons previously came in at No. 1 in 2016 having earned $25.5 million.

"The Big Bang Theory's" cast dominates the rest of the top four with Galecki in second place with $26.5 million, Helberg in third with $26 million and Nayyar in fourth with $25 million.

Following "NCIS" star and executive producer Mark Harmon's placement at No. 5 with $19 million, the cast of "Modern Family" nearly round out the rest of the Top 10 with Ty Burrell in sixth place with $13.5 million, Eric Stonestreet in seventh place with $12.5 million, Ed O'Neill in eighth place with $12 million and Jesse Tyler Ferguson in tenth place with $11 million.

In eight place, breaking up the string of "Modern Family" actors, is Kevin Spacey who stars in and executive produces Netflix's "House of Cards" with $12 million.

On Tuesday, "Modern Family" star Sofia Vergara was announced as the highest paid TV actress with $41.5 million making Vergara the highest earning television star amongst men and women.
