  1. Adam Sandler Named Hollywood’s Most Overpaid Actor

    Adam Sandler’s shtick isn’t as valuable as it once was, according to Forbes’ ranking of the most overpaid actors of 2013. Continuing to ride the wave of hits like The Wedding Singer and Big Daddy, Sandler commands a huge paycheck for every project. But Forbes has concluded that for his last three films, the comic returned an average of just $3.40 for each $1 he was paid. Admittedly, the magazine’s cut-off point was June 1, just weeks before Sandler’s Grown Ups 2 was released and grossed $247 million worldwide. Maybe producers shouldn’t toss his resume just yet.
