How much do actors make for lifetime movies?
55,000 to 90,000 or more depending if you are a-list or b-list. Most a-list celebs do not do lifetime movies, for most lmn budgets are too small to pay mainstream actors.
I believe it has to do with what the actor makes compared to how much their movies make. For example Will Ferrel pocketed $1 for every $3.35 his movies made in 2009 making him one of the most overpaid actors. On the opposite scale Shia LaBeouf is Hollywoods biggest bargain for every dollar he pockets for a film, his movies earn an average of $81. http://www.younghollywood.com/news/will-ferrell-still-most-overpaid-actor.html
