Just how much are the Two and a Half Men leading men worth?
CBS and Warner Bros. Television have reportedly offered a deal to Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer to return for two more seasons, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The offers, however, do not include raises to top what the stars are currently earning.
Kutcher stepped in last May to fill the void left by Charlie Sheen, who was fired from the sitcom. While Sheen earned $1.25 million per episode, Kutcher has been making $700,000 per episode and according to an earlier TV Guide Magazine report, has been holding out for $1 million per episode. Cryer reportedly makes a little less than $700,000.
The lack of a raise could be a sticking point for negotiations. If the show is renewed, it would enter its 10th season in the fall. CBS has declined to comment.
Two and a Half Men airs on Mondays at 9/8c on CBS.
Do you think Kutcher and Cryer deserve a raise? Should they earn seven figures?
