17. Dwayne Johnson – $185 million
The Rock might be last, but he is on a rampage to catch up with the rest of the guys on the list.
What is remarkable about Dwayne Johnson is that he is the best-paid actor of 2016. A third of his $185 million net worth is the result of his superb recent form.
Dwayne doesn’t leave his bed for a check under $10 million, and many of his acting gigs now involve a back end deal. It means that a significant percentage of the box office grosses go into his pocket.
With “The Fate of the Furious” breaking all records regarding opening week earnings, The Rock can only rub his hands against each other and prepare his saliva. He is about to do some serious counting.
“Baywatch” is not something to be ashamed of either. Will the new Mitch Buchannon stand up to the legacy left behind by David Hasselhoff?
