Will Ferrell Most Overpaid Actor and Eddie Murphy, Tom Cruise

Apparently Wall Street bankers aren’t the only ones raking in undeserved dollars. For the second year in a row, funnyman Will Ferrell came in first on Forbes' list of  “Hollywood’s Most Overpaid Actors." Ferrell’s most recent failed flick, Land of the Lost, cost an estimated $100 million to make, but brought in only $69 million worldwide. According to Forbes’ calculation, for every $1 Ferrell was paid, his films made an average of $3.35. Eddie Murphy came in second on the list, Denzel Washington was third, Seth Rogen, fourth, and Tom Cruise, fifth.
