Ashton Kutcher - Ashton Kutcher Approaches Charlie Sheen's Salary On 'Men'

Ashton Kutcher is well on his way to becoming the highest paid actor in American television after signing a new deal worth $700,000 per episode to continue his role on 'Two and a Half Men'.
Kutcher has signed a one-year deal to remain on the show through at least the 10th season, and will make another $1 million per year with the increase, according to Hollywood.com. Providing that the actor continues to score big audience figures for the show, his salary is likely to keep on rising. It's certainly a far cry from Kutcher's humble beginnings on Fox's 'That 70's Show', when he was taking home somewhere between $200,000 and $280,000 per episode. Kutcher is almost commanding the figures that Charlie Sheen took home during his time on the show, though Sheen was easily the highest paid man on television with a salary of $1.4 million per episode. Still, there's plenty of time for Kutcher to reach that figure, and ratings are up around three million from season eight. Meanwhile, Kutcher's co-star Jon Cryer has also got a raise to almost $700,000, while Angus T Jones will take home around $300,000 per episode from now on.
Charlie Sheen will make his return to U.S. television in the forthcoming comedy series 'Anger Management', based on the Hollywood movie of the same name. The actor will play a "non-traditional therapist" - the role played by Jack Nicholson in the film.
