Jim Parsons is one of Hollywood’s most well-known names thanks in large part to his role as Sheldon Cooper from TV hit ‘The Big Bang Theory’.
The TV series, now in its tenth season after having run steadily since 2007, features Parsons as the scientifically-driven and hilariously placed Dr. Cooper, which has earned him a position in the top four spots in Forbes’ list of highest-paid TV actors.
Parsons, 43, leads the way in the listing with a $25.5 million pay packet from 1 June 2015 to the same date in 2016. Meanwhile, his co-stars Johnny Galecki, Simon Helberg, and Kunal Nayyar took the next three spots, netting $24 million, $22.5 million, and $22 million, respectively.
Kaley Cuoco, 30, wasn’t far off Parsons, either, with $24.5 million, ranking her the second highest-paid actress on the show.
