Whimper For The Buck.

Forbes has released a list of who they consider the most overpaid actors in Hollywood. The calculation is made based on the amount they're paid per film versus the amount of revenue the films generate. Topping the list are Russell Crowe and Nicole Kidman. Their most recent films have done poorly, and it's looking like this might include Kidman's latest, the just released Golden Compass. Presumably if this keeps up they won't be getting their huge salaries for long. But even if they take a pay cut they'll still make more per film than most readers of this post will in a lifetime. It would be interesting to know who the most overpaid TV actors are currently, a calculation that might be a bit more difficult to determine.
