Big pay day for Big Bang stars!

Big pay day for Big Bang stars!
Ashleigh Davies

Three of our “Big Bang” favs are looking set to receive the big bucks.

Should Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco sign on to stay on their hit comedy “The Big Bang Theory” through to the 2016-17 season, the stars would land a pay rise of about $1 million per episode, Deadline reports.

The three-season pact would also see the actors receive a full backend point in the show plus other benefits such as development agreements.

Now that the deals are being finalised, production on the show’s eighth season is likely to get underway on Wednesday. Production was delayed last week due to hold ups in finalising the key cast members’ new deals.

Co-stars Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar are also due for new deals which are yet to come. It is expected that they too will see a significant rise in salary, although it is unlikely they will hit the million dollar mark.
