Highest-paid actor on the small screen Chris Pratt

And whoever offers himself the jackpot is, little surprise, or not: Chris Pratt. The Peter Quill / Star-Lordest of Guardians of the Galaxy perfectly negotiated his return to the small screen (remember he started in Everwood and Parks and Recreation): to play in Terminal List, a series intended for Amazon Prime, the actor will indeed touch the trifle of 1.4 million dollars (about 1.2 million euros) per episode. To be discovered in 2022.

Very well paid too, but we already knew that these are Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis, the three funny ladies from Sex and the City and who therefore had a hollow nose by taking their iconic characters in And Just Like That … So who are the highest paid stars on TV?
