Lin-Manuel Miranda’s makin’ bank…
Forbes has released its ranking of the world’s highest-paid actors, with the 40-year-old Puerto Rican actor, singer, rapper and playwright making the list for the first time in his career.
Miranda, who has starred in Speech & Debate, Mary Poppins Returns and The Odd Life of Timothy Green, comes in at No. 7 with earnings of $45.5 million.
Even with Broadway closed for the remainder of 2020, Miranda can expect another big payday next year when the film version of his other Tony Award-winning musical In the Heights comes out.
This year’s highest paid actor is Dwayne Johnson, for the second year in a row, with earning of $87.5 million.
Methodology: Earnings estimates are based on data from Nielsen, ComScore, Box Office Mojo and IMDB, as well as interviews with industry insiders. All figures are pretax and reflect earnings between June 1, 2019, and June 1, 2020; fees for agents, managers and lawyers (generally 10%, 15% and 5%, respectively) are not deducted. The list of highest-paid female actors will be out next month.
