Apparently the people over at Warner Brothers thought that Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar would all show up for work yesterday even though none of them have a new contract. That didn’t happen though and since none of them showed up for anything Big Bang related at Comic-Con, it probably shouldn’t have come as a surprise. Yesterday was the first table read of the season. Jim, Johnny and Kaley are all negotiating together and want $1M per episode which is up from the $350K per episode they get right now. They also want some of that syndication money. I’m sure Ryan Sweeting would love for Kaley to get that raise too. You know, since they are already married. Simon and Kunal also want big raises but won’t get anything close to $1M per episode. Blossom and Melissa Rauch previously signed new deals with big raises. Chuck Lorre said he wanted his cast to get crazy rich, but he also expected them to be at work. I wonder if he will kill them all off now and be replaced by Jon Cryer and Ashton Kutcher with Mila Kunis in Kaley’s role. The show is not set to air until September 22, so they have some time.
