'Big Bang Theory' Cast Take Pay Cuts To Gives Raises To Co-Stars Melissa Rauch & Mayim Bialik
Well, considering they're looking at a 2 season renewal.....
This is pretty big!!
Rumors surfaced a while back that 'The Big Bang Theory' was in danger of facing cancellation, but we've learned now that talks didn't fall through.
In fact, a two season renewal is said to be imminent.
We learned today now, that original stars (Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar) are taking pay cuts to be able to give their co-stars Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch raises.
The pay cut is said to be $100,000 from each of the main 5, from their $1 million per episode. By doing this, that now frees up $500,000, which is split between Rauch and Bialik.
They're now said to be making $450,000 per episode.
