While Mark Wahlberg is currently the highest-paid actor in the world, his total numbers in terms of helping movies earn big at the box office pale in comparison to some of the names on Box Office Mojo’s list of highest grossing talents. In fact, according to Business Insider, in the span of their careers, some of the Hollywood personalities on the list have even helped studios make as much as up to more than half-a-billion USD in ticket sales. For example, Samuel L. Jackson who takes the top spot has a career U.S. box office gross totaling $5.140 billion USD with his most successful flick being The Avengers which raked in $623.4 million USD.

Other names on the list include Harrison Ford (Star Wars, Indiana Jones) at #2 with $4.871 billion USD and Tom Hanks (Toy Story, The Da Vinci Code) at #3 with 4.522 billion USD. Everyone’s body of work on the list is completely different so even names like Anthony Daniels, also known as C-3-CPO in the Star Wars franchise and Stellan Skarsgard (Thor, The Avengers) are also on the roster. As for Mark Wahlberg (Transformers, Daddy’s Home), he’s out of the top 20 and is at #37 with a $2.773 billion USD total.
