Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch recently inked new deals with studio Warner Bros. Television to guarantee their long-term presence on the series, securing raises in the process. Good for them! I really love Amy and Bernadette, so I’m happy about this. However the funny thing is now three more cast members want raises.
The Big Bang Theory leads Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco are seeking sizable pay increases. Sizable isn’t even the word to describe what they want. They currently make 325,000 an episode from what I’m told they will all three come as one and ask for 1 million an episode each. Parsons (Sheldon), Galecki (Leonard) and Cuoco (Penny) will negotiate together — as they did in 2010.
Original stars Simon Helberg (Howard) and Kunal Nayyar (Raj) also are said to be looking for increases and will renegotiate together.
