David Schwimmer — Friends
Ross from Friends was the quirky, neurotic, smart, and lovable member of the six-person main cast. While Schwimmer has gone on to a very successful career as a director, his emergence as a sitcom actor put him squarely into the limelight. The show itself exploded to the point where many call it among the best sitcom comedies ever made. Of course, you can catch a Friends episode on virtually any channel. Schwimmer makes a whopping $20 million (reportedly) a year from these residuals.
