As anyone who has kept up with “NCIS” since Wilmer Valderrama joined the cast in Season 14 has no doubt noticed, Nick Torres has become an instrumental part of the NCIS Major Case Response Team. The actor’s had plenty of fun behind the scenes, too, as evidenced by his happy bromance with Mark Harmon.
As well as allowing Valderrama to expand his profile as an actor, the role of Torres has also been very good for his finances (via Hello! Magazine). In fact, he reportedly earns no less than $100,000 for every episode he films. Granted, this doesn’t compare to Harmon’s whopping reported earnings of $525,000 per episode, but it does surpass “NCIS” veteran David McCallum’s (who plays “Ducky” Mallard) salary of $75,000 per episode — not bad, considering how late in the game Valderrama joined the show.
Valderrama’s salary is impressive, but even without it, the star isn’t exactly short of petty cash. In fact, the actor’s reported net worth is a very impressive $20 million.
