Robert Sean Leonard is one of those many actors who you’ve definitely seen in role after role even if you can’t place his name. He’s appeared in film (Dead Poets Society), television (House), and on Broadway (he won a Tony Award for The Invention of Love) since he began acting as a teenager.
Robert Sean Leonard doesn’t have any illusions that being an actor is akin to finding a cure for cancer or being a brain surgeon. The actor is quick to admit that he’s grown up from once thinking that acting was a noble profession.
Reports say Sheen was making $1.25 million per episode, while Laurie earns around $400,000 per episode or $9 million a year for his work on “House”.
“The first thing I ever auditioned for was an anti-drug PSA. They didn’t pay me to do the commercial, but they gave me my SAG card.” — Alison Brie, “Community”.
