Kaley Cuoco, Jonathan Galecki and Jim Parsons held out in their Big Bang Theory contract negotiations recently--and they sure had some cards to play. Big Bang Theory is the #1 sitcom on TV and no one wanted to see the Big Three broken up. Thehollywoodgossip.com and other outlets are now saying that Parsons, Cuoco and Galecki will each make $1 million per episode for the next 72 more episodes--that's three years of shows.
Parsons, Cuoco and Galecki are also in line to collect some profit-sharing on the popular show, which amps their totals in a best case scenario by another $18 million or so over the course of the three-year deal. That means the trio just signed on to make $270 million between now and 2018 on the Big Bang Theory alone. In their spare time, of course, they can make a few movies or sell perfume if they want. It's quite the life.
