No.8 Highest-Paid Actor for a Single Role: Jack Nicholson

Paid: $60 million (Joker)

Jack Nicholson may not have played the title role in the 1989 Batman, but he did end up as the actor who made the most from the movie. He accepted an initial paycheck of only $6 million, as opposed to his standard $10 million, but he struck a deal to also receive a percentage of the sales, which increased his earnings to a staggering $60 million.
