Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson was listed as the highest paid actor of 2016, earning $64.5 million before taxes. In 2017, he dropped to No. 2 on Forbes' ranking, behind Mark Wahlberg, but still earns a sizable paycheck: Between June 2016 and June 2017, he made $65 million, pretax.
The former wrestler-turned-actor now commands eight figures to be featured in films like "Baywatch" and "Jumanji." Plus, he earns an estimated $650,000 per episode of HBO's "Ballers," in which he plays a retired football superstar re-inventing himself as a financial adviser.
