Big Bang Cast take pay cut to seed supporting cast 2017-03-01 08-16-00

I love to hear of show casts united to the point of actually taking a stand or a pay cut to support their coworkers .

The Big Bang Theory could get renewed for two more seasons if Warner Bros. TV can reach an agreement with the cast over salaries for seasons 11 and 12.

While the original five stars earn $1 million an episode, actresses Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch who joined the show in season three, only get paid $200,000 per episode.

Now, according to Variety, the original five are offering to take a small pay cut of $100,000 per episode each so that the money will be there to give Bialik and Rauch $450,000 each per episode.

Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Kunal Nayyar and Simon Helberg have all agreed to the plan, the trade reported Tuesday, on the condition the savings are distributed between their two lesser paid co-stars.  Which is really just a respectful thing to do.
