Mark Wahlberg highest paid

Mark Wahlberg has passed Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to be the top earning actor in 2017. The former rapper Marky Mark, Wahlberg is woth no question the most victorious musician-turned-actor working at present, having gathered scores of movie recognitions since his first in the Danny DeVito funny drama Renaissance Manin 1994.

Along the line, Mark has been up to take risks and act in a cover of different categories, from fictional drama (Boogie Nights, Rock Star) and comedy (Ted, Daddy’s Home) to crime thrillers (The Departed, We Own the Night) and action/adventures (Three Kings, Shooter), also as real dramas (The Fighter, Lone Survivor, Patriot’sDay) and sci-fiction action (Transformers: Age of Extinction, Transformers: The Last Knight ).

Also among Mark Wahlberg’s recognition is Pain & Gain facing Johnson, now the Mark has surpassed his allies and co-artistes on a very reputable list. As reported by Forbes, Wahlberg’s income, from June 1st, 2016 to June 1st, 2017, have contributed to making him the highest billed actor, having made $68 million before tax in the declaration’s one year scoring time.

That amount defeats Johnson (last year’s top-earner), who came second position on Forbes’ list at $65 million. Making the third position on the list is Vin Diesel ($54.5 million), next is Adam Sandler ($50.5 million), then Jackie Chan ($49 million).

As the digits for Wahlberg, Johnson and Diesel is sensible, all thanks to the high-budget movies as Fast and Furious 8 and Transformers: The Last Knight, the income for Sandler and Jackie Chan show more confusing. Forbes opened, however, that Sandler has a profitable agreement with Netflix to direct his own films, as Jackie Chan’s income almost come from his movie productions in China.

One telling signal on the Forbes list is that crucial praise does not really matter when it comes an actor’s income. As Wahlberg has been nominated for 2 Oscars in previously (for Best Supporting Actor for The Departed and as a producer on the Best Picture nominee The Fighter), his only main launch till this time in 2017, Transformers: The Last Knight, made a dull 15% “decayed” rating on decayed Tomatoes.

Forbes stated the digits were gathered from data from Nielsen, ComScore, Box Office Mojo, IMDb and meetings with industry authorities. The numbers do not add fees for agents, managers and their lawyers. The accumulated sum for the first 20 actors on the Forbes 2017 list is $720m.

Rounding out the Top 10 top-earned actors is Robert Downey Jr. ($48 million) at sixth position, next is Tom Cruise ($43 million) and Bollywood actors Shah Rukh Kahn ($38m) Salman Khan ($37m) and Akshay Kumar ($35.5m).
