Mark Wahlberg is the world's highest paid actor, taking in $68 million over a 12-month period reviewed by analysts at Forbes. Wahlberg takes over the spot from Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, who earned $65 million over the same period.

Wahlberg takes the top spot off the strength of his role in the "Transformers" film franchise. Wahlberg also has a potential blockbuster in "Jumanji" debuting later this year. 

Jackie Chan ($49 million), Adam Sandler ($50.5 million) and Vin Diesel ($54.5 million) round out the rest of the top-5.
