Ray Romano is now the highest paid actor in television. The star of Everybody Loves Raymond, inked a deal with CBS that will pay the actor $50 million to star in the eighth season of the show. CSB has also renewed the show for two seasons, forking out nearly $6 million an episode in licensing fees. Raymond is produced by Worldwide Pants (David Letterman) and HBO Independent Productions. Romano will star in the upcoming film Eulogy with Winona Ryder and Hank Azaria, which sounds anything but good.
