Can you imagine making that much money for one single episode? Some celebrities have actually made it!
There aren’t many celebrities who manage to earn one million dollars for a single episode, but some of them made it. Mostly, though, it didn’t happen until later in the seasons of the shows they starred, but hey: better late, than never!
1- Jerry Seinfeld – Seinfeld
Well, yes, he managed to get $1 million for a single episode in his own show and it really makes sense. Throughout its 9 seasons, Seinfeld audience grew and having ended in 1998, it still remains an all-time hit show.
2- Norman Reedus – The Walking Dead
The Walking Dead has been airing for 10 solid years now, not bad for a show about a group of survivors trying to make it against killer zombies.
Reedus played a pivotal role in the show success, so he got a pretty nice rise on his paycheck — a whopping $1 million.
3- Steve Carell – Space Force
You would have thought that Carell made $1 million per episode while portraying the unforgettable Michael Scott on The Office, but for that role, he made $175,000. However, he got paid $1 million per episode for 10 episodes in the first season of the show.
4- Reese Whitherspoon – The Morning Show and Little Fires Everywhere
If you were surprised about stars making $1 million per episode on a show, then we have news for you: Reese is making one million dollars per episode not on one show, but on two! That’s right, yes. And as a matter of fact, if we want to be more specific, she is actually also making $1.1 million per episode for Big Little Lies, too. So that is 3 shows.
5- Charlie Sheen – Two and a Half Men
By season seven, Charlie Sheen was making $1.8 million per episode! That season alone had 22 episodes, so he made quite a fortune while filming it. However, he left the show after than because he was asked to take a pay cut and was only offered $1 million. He said no (and a lot of unsavory things).
