John Krasinski Named The Highest-Paid Actor On TV

Published by

According to a new report published on February 27th, some of the highest-paid television stars are listed. The article “11 Hot Questions About the First Two Months of Hollywood ’23,” written by Matthew Belloni of Puck, provides surprising results.

A remark on how Euphoria’s Zendaya got a wage hike from HBO is included in the piece. Zendaya’s salary each episode as Rue, the show’s primary actress, has reportedly surpassed $1 million. But, Belloni claims that she is no longer the highest-paid TV actor, as that accolade now belongs to John Krasinski.

Krasinski, who stars as Jack Ryan in Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan reportedly earns around $2 million per episode. The Amazon Prime series just ended its third season on Dec. 21. Beginning in 2018, the show was renewed for a fourth and final season in October 2021. John Krasinski, who most notably has starred as Jim Halpert in The Office, is surely one of the main reasons the series has been able to grow such a passionate fanbase. While Mariska Hargitay of Law & Order: SVU and Ellen Pompeo of Grey’s Anatomy make more per season on their shows, Krasinski makes more per episode, according to Belloni. But, there are still a few actors who come a tad bit close to Krasinski’s salary.

John Krasinski’s Competition

John Krasinksi currently sits atop the mountain when it comes to earnings as a TV actor. But runner-ups like Kevin Costner, Jason Sudeikis, Harrison Ford, and Helen Mirren are no slouches. Costner, who stars in Paramount’s Yellowstone, reportedly makes $1.2 million per episode. In Jason Sudekis’ case, the face of Apple’s Ted Lasso, he too cracked the $1 million figure. This also goes for the aforementioned Ford and Mirren of 1923.

These figures are considered particularly staggering too, considering that TV contracts are typically not as lucrative as they used to be. When speaking with a source regarding the matter, Belloni reported that he was told, “$850,000 is the new $1 million.” So, there’s no telling what Zendaya’s $1 million or Krasinski’s $2 million would translate to in the heyday of cable television. Either way, though, surely none of the actors listed above are losing sleep at night about how much they rake in per episode.
