Chris Pratt Is America’s Highest Paid TV Actor

Pratt will earn $1.4 million per episode for his upcoming series The Terminal List.

The new show is said to be a political thriller about a Navy SEAL out for revenge.  The show will premier on Amazon Prime next year.



Variety reports that streaming services are paying A-list actors big bucks to come over to their channels.



Leading the outlet’s 2021 list of highest-paid TV stars, released on Tuesday, is Robert Downey Jr., who was reportedly paid $2 million for the upcoming HBO Vietnam War thriller The Sympathizer.  But because Variety was unable to verify Robert’s salary so they gave the top spot to Pratt.



Other top-earning actors on the list this year include Jeff Bridges and Bryan Cranston.



Kate Winslet is the top-earning leading lady for her work on HBO’s Mare of Eastown, she’s earning $650,000 per episode.



Angela Bassett, meanwhile, recently made headlines for scoring the highest per-episode salary for a black woman, receiving $450,000 per episode of emergency series 9-1-1.
