Well RDJ deserves it. When he leaves Marvel, they're pretty much done. Quite a comeback too, there was a time that he couldn't get the insurance necessary to even be in a film.

How is The Rock at #2? What is he in, besides the Fast/Furious movies, and he's not even the lead? Or do they count the wrestling shiat?

Well, he's in a well-known pic with Emma Watson....

/Also, he's got the lead in a Hercules pic that looks like a decent popcorner.

Right, this month's Hercules movie. I thought it was a SyFy original movie when I saw the ad. They have to be factoring in the wrestling.

Why is Will Smith getting paid in pounds?  Is our money not good enough for him?

At least it looks truer to the source material than that crap (The Legend of Hercules) they released in January. I just checked RT and it has a 3%.

But since they aren't doing advance screenings on The Rock's Hercules, it'll probably hit somewhere in the low teens.

He sold a series to HBO and he has executive producer credit on it.  That's worth some serious money as well.

Plus: advertising contracts.

Given the option between $32 million and £32 million, I'll take the pounds sterling every single time.

RDJ helped put Marvel on the map, but the movies without him have also done very well.  I have a feeling they'll manage to throw him in in small roles ala Samuel L Jackson even if he doesn't renew his leading role contract.

Marvel will find a way to pass the torch to a younger actor when the time comes, and everyone will be okay with it because if there's one company that could successfully do that right now, it's Marvel.

He's been in a GI Joe movie and a bunch of other smaller-yet profitable little movies.

He only did 2 movies during that span, and both of them flopped domestically (although Edge of Tomorrow did damn good overseas).

I don't see the Avengers without RDJ but it's been done with Batman and to a lesser extent, Superman so anything's possible. It's just that none of the other characters have any charisma. He's like Han Solo dealing with the Jedi from the prequels.

Snitch (over $100 million gross)

Pain and Gain ($95 million)
Fast and Furious 6 ($788 million)

Yeah, must be the wrestling shiat.

Sheer volume helps, in 2013 he was in Pain & Gain, Fast/Furious 6, Empire State, Snitch, and GI Joe: Retaliation.  Don't know if he got a new agent or what but he had a great year alst year and was well suited for all of the parts he played.

Somewhat doubt that, if another movie and it's actor/actress makes it then it's rinse/repeat.

But yeah happy for him that he was almost on skid row due to his demons and now is in his happy place.

Nah, probably the movies.  I don't think it's him but what was the last movie other than "The Rundown" that really made him look good?

The stars' salaries are interesting. But I am always curious what the lesser roles pay. We know about what Johnny Depp got for Pirates. But what do the other, lesser roles take home? Like the two guys who were the bumbling pirate duo? The one fake eye guy and his friend. Could you make a living at that level? The same goes for TV and music stars too. There are a lot of second bananas out there. People that are more than just "extras" and make a positive impact on the quality of the show.

Why should anyone be jealous or surprised?  I think it's pretty well known that actors are paid well. Or is Subby upset because some unknown actor in some obscure French film he saw in his mother's basement isn't on the list?

Wasn't that R. Kelly's gimmick (at least with the peeing)? I thought Lowe just had a taste for way young tail and a tendency not to get proper ID when hooking up (and she was technically legal, the best kind of legal).

This isn't the business world or Bain Capital, this is Hollywood. No one gets paid anything unless they make even more money for someone else. So of course it's silly that someone get paid $70mill to play superhero but it's better than the guy signing his checks who does nothing making even more.

As a cog in the machine, of course I work more than the movie stars (maybe not at the gym) but I'm giddy at my compensation. And even if I were a production assistant, the craft services table is always excellent. Better than working for some MBA tool whose just going to destroy a company and sell it for parts.

Yah R. Kelly was the one who pissed on people, Rob Lowe had sex with some underage girl who I think lied to him about his age or he didn't ask or something.  And I do believe him and his friend taped it which is how he got caught.  It's been awhile though, but that shiat hurt his career for awhile there.

Of course both R Kelly and Ray Jay had the infamous piss stories so maybe it's something about R names.  Either way, this is a good time to post the lyrics for Dave Chappelle's take on it:

I say, rollin' around
Sittin' on dubs
Can not lie, was high on shrubs,
Coolin' in my Escalade
Man I'm paid, I got it made
Take me to your special place
Close your eyes show me your face
I'm gonna piss on it
(Chorus)
Haters wanna hate
Lovers wanna love
I don't even want
None of the above
I want to piss on you
Yes I do, I'll piss on you
I'll pee on you
It's your body, your body
Is a portapotty
When I pee I kick
I'm gonna do karate on your body
I'm want to pee on you
Drip, drip, drip
Yes I do I pee on you
I ssss on you, ssss on you
You'll never feel quite the same
When you get a whiff of my Hershey stains,
I wanna poop on you too
I want to pee in your food
Only thing that makes my life complete
Is when I turn your face into a toliet seat
I want to pee on you
Yes I do, Yes I do I'll pee on you
I'll piss on you
(Chorus)
Haters wanna hate
Lovers wanna love
I don't even want
None of the above
I want to piss on you, yes I do I piss on you
I'll pee on you
Won't you braid my hair
I said won't you braid my hair
I'm gonna be a star, Im gonna go far
I wanna fart on you
