He knocked out Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who held the top spot last year.

His family also stars in the locally shot reality show “Wahlburgers” at the family’s restaurant chain.

Forbes says that despite a tough year at the box office for his movies, Wahlberg still raked in big paydays for his starring roles in “Transformers: The Last Knight,” and “Deepwater Horizon.”

Vin Diesel, Adam Sandler and Jackie Chan round out Forbes’ list of the Top 5 highest paid actors.
