HOLLYWOOD -- Mark Wahlberg tops Forbes Magazine's list of highest-paid actors for 2017 with $68 million (pretax), thanks to "Transformers: The Last Knight"; "Daddy's Home 2," arriving Nov. 10, with Will Ferrell and Mei Gibson; and the iron- icaUy titled "All the Money In the World," with Michelle Williams and Kevin Spacey, due Dec. 8. This doesn't include the fortune he's making from Spectrum commercials and "Wahlburgers" (the series and the hamburger joints). He also makes big bucks for producing. No. 2 is "The Rock" Dwayne Johnson, up $50 million this year with $65 million from "Baywatch "' "Jumanji" (out Dec. 20), "Rampage" (coming April 20),"Skyscrap- er" (July 13 release) and"Flghting With My Family." He also added coin for successfully producing. Another actor producing for really big bucks is Vin Diesel, whose slice of the billion-dollar grosser "The Fate of the Fu- rious," made him No. 3 at $54 million, with help from'`The Reama of Xander Cage" and "Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2." Coming in at No. 4 is Adam Sandier, who went to Netfiix this year in a big way and raked in $50 million for "Sandy Wexler" with Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson, Kevin James, Terry Crews and Rob Schneider; "The Meyerowitz Stories" with Ben Stiller, Emma Thompson and Dustin Hoffman; and '`The Week Of' with Chris Rock and Rachel Dratch. Add monies for writing, producing and lending his voice to the animated "Hotel Transylvania 3;' and it stacks up big. No. 5 Jackie Chan still is the top grosser in China, where he made seven films this year, as well as "Shanghai Dawn," the sequel to "Shanghai Knights" (2003), again with Owen W'dson; and "The Foreigner," with Pierce Brosnan, for a total of $49 million. *** Remember Steve Howey of "Reba"? He's gone to the dogs! His just-released film, shotin 2015, is "Unleashed," in which a cosmic storm turns him (a dog) and the family cat into two perfect men who vie for dates with their mis- tress. When you watch the film, see if you can spot Kathy Garver, who played old- er sister Cissy in the 1960s sitcom "Family Affair." Brad Pitt is returning to acting in the sei-fi epic "Ad Astra," with Tommy Lee Jones, Donald Sutherland, Jamie Kennedy and Ruth Negga, in which he searches the solar system for his missing father. Pitt has 35 projects optioned to produce and/or star in. That's one way to get over a divorce! Two-time Oscar winner Hillary Swank, now onscreen with Channing Tatum in the mediocre "Logan Lucky," has completed "55 Steps," with Helena Bonham Canner and Jeffrey Tambor; "What They Had," with Michael Shannon, Robert Forster and Blythe Danner; and is executive produc- ing and starting in "Intimate Strangers." No doubt it will be a "Swank Production." (c) 2017King Features Svnd., Inc. Brad Pitt 1. TRAV- EL: What West and East Coast cities does Interstate 10 connect in the United States? 2.

You still can get your point across, but do it in a way less likely to turn off a potential supporter. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Good news: All that hard work you put in is beginning to pay off. But you need to watch that tendency to insist on doing things your way or no way. Be a bit more flexible. \-.. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You mi~zht want to delay making a decision on the future of a long-standing relationship until you check out some heretofore hid- den details that are just now beginning to emerge. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your re- luctance to compromise on an important issue could backfire without more facts to support your position. Weigh your options carefully before making your next move. LEO (July 23 to August 22) This is a good time for ambitious Leos or Leonas to shift from planning their next move to actually doing it. Your communication skills help persuade others to join you. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Relationships -- personal or professional -- present new challenges. Be careful not to let a sudden surge of stubbornness influence how you choose to deal with them. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) You might need more facts before you can decide on a possible career change. But you should have no problem making a decision about an important personal matter. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) You're respected by most people for your direct, no-nonsense approach to the issues. But be careful you don't replace honest skepticism with stinging sarcasm. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to De- cember 21) A newly emerging situation could require a good deal of attention and some difficult decision-making. However, close friends will help you see it through. CAPRICORN (December 22 to Janu- ary 19) Family matters need attention. Check things out carefully. There still might be unresolved tensions that could hinder your efforts to repair damaged relationships. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Of course you deserve to indulge yourself in something special. But for now, tuck that bit of mad money away. You'll need it to help with a looming cash crunch. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A temporary setback in your financial situ- ation is eased by changing some of your plans. You'll be able to ride it out quite well until the tide turns back in your favor. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a gift for understanding people's needs. You have a low tolerance for those who act without concern for others. (c) 2017 King Features Svm/., Inc.
