Jason Segel tops annual list of highest-paid actors

In 2014 it looked like the actor’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Thursday (January 19) that Segel is the highest-paid actor in the world, pulling in an astonishing $82 million between December 2015 and December 2016, a nearly $50 million lead over his closest competition.

People With Money’s factors

In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.

The American actor-musician-screenwriter has an estimated net worth of $245 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Segel Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Los Angeles Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondersegel - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Jason) and a fashion line called “Jason Segel Seduction”.

The ranking is significant for many Jason fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
