The hilarious ‘Half’ pint from ‘Two and a Half Men‘ is rolling in dough.
He was already the richest kid on TV, and now 17-year-old Angus T. Jones will get paid more than many adults in prime-time, according to TMZ.
Jones signed a new contract in May with CBS that will pay him $300,000 per episode, plus a $500,000 signing bonus. That’s a total of $7.8 million over two years. But the deal is for a minimum of 26 episodes, and CBS has already guaranteed the series two more seasons, so Jones could potentially make that salary for 48 episodes, earning the teen a whopping $14.4 million. It’s a $50,000 per episode raise for the actor, who previously was pulling $250,000 a show.
Leading ‘Man’ Charlie Sheen inked a new deal this year as well, worth $2 million an episode, for earnings of $52 million over two seasons. Costar Jon Cryer is rumored to make some where in the neighborhood of $20 million.
By comparison: 11-year-old Rico Rodriguez, who costars on the Emmy-winning comedy ‘Modern Family,’ makes $15,000 per show. Miranda Cosgrove, 16, of the Nickelodeon hit ‘iCarly,’ rakes in $180,000 per episode. And Miley Cyrus reportedly makes just $15,000 an episode on ‘Hannah Montana’–but that does not factor in the millions she makes from her movie and singing career.
What do you think of Angus T. Jones’ new salary? Is Jake Harper worth that much?
