Hugh Laurie Gets Huge Raise

And we thought it was crazy when Matthew Fox starting making a quarter million per episode!

Hugh Laurie, who stars as Dr. House on the hit show, is getting a pretty significant raise in pay.  He'll now be making $400,000 an episode, which equals more than $9 million per year. 

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation leading man William Petersen, who is leaving the show, currently tops the list of the highest paid actors on a drama series, earning $600,000 per episode.

24's Kiefer Sutherland nets close to $500,000. Both are executive producers on their series. Do you think these guys are overpaid?
