Jim Parsons has to say a ton of science-y words he can’t pronounce playing Sheldon Cooper every week on The Big Bang Theory, but never say he wasn’t appropriately compensated!
The Emmy-winner managed to top Forbes‘ list of highest-paid TV actors for 2016 for another consecutive year, taking in a cool $25.5 million earnings for playing the neurotic scientist on the CBS comedy.
But Parsons wasn’t the only BBT star to make the list — calculated from June 1, 2015 to June 1, 2016 — as the next three spots were taken by three fellow cast members.
Johnny Galecki took second with $24 million, Simon Helberg took third with $22.5 mil, and Kunal Nayyar landed fourth place with $22 mil!

The Big Bang Theory isn’t just a money maker for the men, as Kaley Cuoco landed the no. 2 spot on Forbes’ highest paid TV actresses list — earning $24.5 million.
The rest of the top male earners aren’t that surprising. Other names include The X-Files star David Duchovny, Castle lead Nathan Fillion, and the four funny men of Modern Family!
Though, like always, some names are a bit surprising to see on the list. (What are you doing here, Ray Romano?)
