Jim Parson Is TV’s Highest Paid Actor

The Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons once again tops this list, this year with a $25.5 million take earned between June 1, 2015 and June 1, 2016. As was the case with last year’s list, a lucrative Big Bang contract counted for the lion’s share of Parsons’ earnings, as it did for his fellow castmates Johnny Galecki (No. #2 on the list, with $24 million in earnings during the period), Simon Helberg (whose $22.5 million in earnings gave him the No. 3 spot) and Kunal Nayyar (No.4, with $22 million).
