The Cast of ‘The Big Bang Theory’ Wants That Sick ‘Friends’ Money
One million dollars per episode, to be exact.
The Hollywood Reporter confirms that Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco are negotiating new contracts together, and are seeking a pay raise, perhaps as high as $1 million per episode. The trio currently makes $325,000 per episode, each.
The thing is, they might get it. Henry Cavill’s favorite show is a big hit and Parsons has won two Emmys for his performance as Sheldon. If the three are successful, it would elevate them to the status of Friends: Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlac and Matthew Perry all made $1 million an episode for their final season on the show.
