As one thing always leads to another, especially with today’s blossoming Web 2.0 interactivity, Chris Wilson predicted this summer’s movie releases, which got me asking who are the highest-paid actors? Forbes came to the rescue.
If I hadn’t seen the “Pirates of the Carribean: At World’s End” (which I enjoyed) late Thursday night or parts of “Waterworld” (which was semi-entertaining) yesterday, I wouldn’t have cared who the best paid actors are, but Johnny Depp has acted in a few sequels, and the TV commentator for “Waterworld” said Kevin Costner refuses to commit to sequels. So, I looked up him and his peers.
Some top actors, such as Will Smith, Tom Cruise, Tom Hanks, Brad Pitt, Renee Zellweger, Cameron Diaz, Halle Berry, and Angelina Jolie have acted in sequels, whereas folks like Leonardo DiCaprio, Denzel Washington, Jodie Foster, and Jim Carrey join Costner in sequel-less performances.
