Despite the fact that none of Ashton Kutcher's Two and a Half Men episodes have actually aired yet, he's already the highest-paid sitcom actor on TV, earning a whopping $700,000 per episode. That's massive considering lead primetime performers typically earn $125,000 an episode, reports TV Guide, but it's still a far cry from predecessor Charlie Sheen's $1.2 million per episode.
Speaking of Sheen, his former Men co-star Jon Cryer promised KTLA yesterday that Sheen's death would be "funny," but said he couldn't reveal much. "There is no meat explosion, just so you know; it's not some entrée that ends disastrously." He also spoke highly of his new co-star, saying, "Ashton just did the show on Friday and just tore the roof off the joint. He was amazing." Watch the video at the Huffington Post.
