THE BIG BANG THEORY cast is set for an explosive new pay deal - the show's stars Jim Parsons, KALEY CUOCO and Johnny Galecki will make $200,000 (£133,000)-per-episode, according to U.S. reports.
They are currently earning $60,000 (£40,000) for every episode they film, but thanks to the popularity of the sitcom, bosses at U.S. network CBS have increased the trio's salaries by $140,000 (£93,000) each, according to
Galecki, Cuoco and Parsons, who won the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series Emmy last month (Aug10), will also take home an extra $50,000 (£33,000) increase for the next three seasons.
The news is sure to aid Cuoco's recovery after after breaking her leg in a horseriding accident.
