Damn, Ashton is now officially bawllliinnnn and #WINNING!!!

When the 33-year-old actor steps into character as Walden Schmidt on Two and a Half Men’s September 19 premiere, he’ll also take on the role of TV’s highest-paid sitcom star.

According to a new TV Guide report — featured in the magazine’s August 11 issue — Kutcher will earn approximately $700,000 per episode of the CBS hit. While his take is impressive, it’s far less than that of his predecessor, Charlie Sheen, who enjoyed a payday of $1.2 million per episode of the half-hour comedy.

If you ask CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler, though, Kutcher’s paycheck is well deserved. “There is great value in hiring an actor like Ashton Kutcher,” Tassler told reporters at a recent Television Critics Association panel. “He is an extraordinarily professional, talented, funny, gifted actor who comes with a tremendous amount of commitment and enthusiasm, embraced by an extraordinarily talented cast.”

Must be nice.
