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.
