Ashton Kutcher Tops Forbes' 2014 List Of Highest-Earning TV Actors
Whilst actors Kevin Spacey and Jon Hamm join the list for the first time...
Ashton Kutcher has taken the top spot in Forbes' list of TV's Top-Earning Actors for a third year in row.
The Two And A Half Men star earned an estimated $26 million this year, as the show continues to pull in an average of 11 million viewers an episode.
His earnings from the show, along with endorsement deals and a mult-year contract as a product engineer with Lenovo have added a hefty $3 mill to Ashton's earnings on last year.
Kutcher's co-star, Jon Cryer, ties with NCIS' Mark Harmon at second place, both with earnings of $19 million.
But with Two And A Half Men set to finish after its next series, the list may look a little different next year.
Neil Patrick Harris rounds out the top three, as his lead role in Broadway production Hedwig And The Angry Inch, and continuing royalties from How I Met Your Mother have helped him rake in $18 million this past year.
Kevin Spacey enters the list for the first time this year at No 4 due to a lucrative contract with Netflix for the political drama series House of Cards.
The actor's role in Horrible Bosses 2 has also contributed to his earnings of $16 million over the past year.
The Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons ranks slightly ahead of his co-stars at No 7 due to roles in movies like Home - which has hiked his earnings up to $12 million.
Mad Men's Jon Hamm makes his debut on the rich-list at No 9, after pulling in $10 million this year for his portrayal of Don Draper in the drama, which is halfway through its last season.
