Kaley Cuoco & Other Big Bang Theory Stars Offer To Take A Pay Cut For Co-Stars


Five “Big Bang Theory” stars will reportedly take a pay cut so their newer co-stars, Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch, can get raises.

Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar agreed to each give up $100,000 per episode for that money to go towards the actresses.

Bialik and Rauch both joined the CBS sitcom in Season 3, and were renegotiating their contracts when their co-stars reportedly made the offer.

Galecki, Parsons, Cuoco, Helberg and Nayyar are rumored to make $1 million per episode. 

The extra $500,000 per episode would bump Bialik and Rauch from $200,000 to nearly $450,000 per episode in the show's prospective 11th and 12th seasons.

The series is in its 10th season, and has yet to be renewed.
