Forbes released its list of the world's highest-paid TV actors for 2016 on Thursday, and a Big Bang Theory actor took the winning spot with his $25.5 million earnings.

For another consecutive year, Jim Parsons was named number one for his leading role on the CBS comedy. Calculated from June 1, 2015 to June 1, 2016, Parsons' – who plays Sheldon Cooper on the Emmy-winning series – annual earnings came out to $25.5 million.

But Parsons isn't the only BBT actor to make the honorable list. Three fellow cast members secured top spots, including Johnny Galecki in second place with $24 million, Simon Helberg in third place with $22.5 million and Kunal Nayyar in fourth place with $22 million.

Who's Kaley Cuoco's (Super Surprising!) Dream Date?

Originally posted 02/25/2016 11:15AM

The Big Bang Theory airs its 200th episode on Thursday night – but as it turns out, there's still a lot we don't know about the characters from the beloved CBS sitcom.

In a new video for Glamour.com, the stars of the series get candid during a red carpet quiz while celebrating the 200th episode party at Vibiana in Los Angeles.

A few highlights: Johnny Galecki, 40, is "least nervous and most comfortable half-naked" when playing Leonard, and Jim Parsons, 42, wishes his character Sheldon would have a "secret one-night stand" with Penny (Kaley Cuoco) because the "after-coitus conversation would be so enjoyable to play."
