'House' star Hugh Laurie gets big raise

Hugh Laurie is now among the highest-paid actors in a drama series.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Laurie will earn $400,000 per episode, putting him right behind "CSI's" William Peterson, who earns a whopping $600,000, and "24's" Kiefer Sutherland, who gets a weekly paycheck of about $500,000. When you do the math, that means that Laurie will earn more than $9 million this year.

Laurie will also receive a producing credit and has extended his contract until 2011-12, which means there'll be at least a couple more years of Dr. Gregory House's sarcastic wit!
