    Thanks to nearly two million MySpace fans, Cook sold out two shows each at both the Boston Garden and Madison Square Garden last year. He also sold a million copies of comedy CDs Harmful if Swallowed and Retaliation in the last year, plus another 300,000 DVDs of his Vicious Circle and Tourgasm HBO shows. Cook starred in last year's Jessica Simpson comedy Employee of the Month and the recently released Kevin Costner thriller Mr. Brooks. He'll corral his MySpace millions when he hits the road later this year for some 30 shows at basketball arenas nationwide.

      Celebrity chefdom's elder statesman may not be as visible as the new legion of young star chefs, but Puck still brings in big bucks, thanks mostly to his casual dining and catering empire, which now boasts airport kiosks. And unlike the new guard, Puck maintains credibility with foodies: His Spago restaurant in Beverly Hills still ranks among the top gourmet dining destinations in the country.

        The 'Bam!' Man still packs 'em in at his nine restaurants and two Food Network shows. Despite setbacks following Hurricane Katrina, Lagasse rebounded, opening another restaurant along the Gulf Coast this spring. And his popularity continues to soar—to outer space: NASA enlisted the Big Easy chef to create meals for a recent space shuttle mission.

          The film adaptation of Brown's The Da Vinci Code grossed $758 million worldwide, plus another $130 million in DVD sales, making it the second-highest grossing film of 2006. The ripple effect: strong paperback sales of Da Vinci and pre- Da Vinci titles. The year ahead should prove to be another profitable one for the author: Tom Hanks and Ron Howard are rumored to be in final negotiations with Columbia Pictures to bring another Brown title to the big screen, the Da Vinci prequel Angels & Demons. Brown is said to be toiling over a Da Vinci sequel.

            Abrams is best known for creating, producing and directing the intricately plotted TV shows Alias and Lost. Abrams made his big-screen directing debut last year with Mission: Impossible III, starring Tom Cruise. With $398 million in worldwide box-office receipts, the film fell short of its predecessors, but still ended up as the eighth most lucrative movie of 2006. Paramount apparently liked what it saw from Abrams: Last July, the production company signed him to a five-year, $23 million movie deal. But fans of his television work needn't worry: Warner Brothers recently signed him to six-year, $36 million TV production deal.

She also hosted Germany's version of America's Next Top Model. In her 'spare' time, she designs and markets a line of jewelry through Mouawad.

                  With 69 LPGA wins, including 10 major titles, Sorenstam has been the world's most dominant golfer for the past decade. She's won multiple tournaments every year since 1995. Her $20.5 million take in career prize money is 55% more than the next-highest earner, Karrie Webb. In April, Sorenstam decided to nurture future golfing millionaires by opening the Annika Academy, a golf school outside of Orlando.

                    The guru of alternative medicine has sold 30 million books since 1988, and oversees an empire that sells everything from teas to weight-loss programs. His fame has made him a speaking-circuit supernova: His 40 speeches a year bring in over $2 million. Last year Chopra joked on Comedy Central's Colbert Report that he wasn't a 'prophet' but a 'profit.'

                          The highest-earning standup comic in the United States, Larry the Cable Guy (real name: Dan Whitney) toured relentlessly last year, grossing $21.5 million in ticket sales. He nets $3 million annually from his 'Git 'R Done' merchandise, plus another $2 million or so from CDs. Recent films include last year's Larry The Cable Guy: Health Inspector and Delta Farce, released in May. Look for him in next year's Witless Protection, to be distributed by Lionsgate.

                            It's been a tough year for the Oscar-winning actress. Not only did she endure a very public split with husband Ryan Phillippe, but she backed out of Bunny Lake is Missing just weeks before filming was scheduled to start. Then she fired her agent. This winter, she'll star in Rendition with Jake Gyllenhaal, her first film since winning her Academy Award last year.

                              Radcliffe, better known as the star of the Harry Potter film franchise, generated a media frenzy this year after he appeared onstage nude in a West End revival of Equus. The next Potter film, The Order of the Phoenix, is slated to hit theaters in July. Since his first foray into wizardry back in 2001 at age 12, both Radcliffe and his paycheck have matured remarkably. The actor was offered a reported $145,000 for The Sorcerer's Stone six years ago. He earned an estimated $14 million for his most recent role.
