Hmm.....it's maybe time to boycott 'The Big Bang Theory' and it's actors, namely, Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar, Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch, get $25,000 an hour, yes,it's true!
The trio of Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco who previously received more than $300,000 per episode. Now have secured three-year deals for $1 million per episode for the 72 episodes...$216 million total between all 3 a year. All without curing the Ebola Virus, ending the U.S deficit,or solving the worlds hunger crisis.
And we can blame for this on our "Friends" Ross..Chandler..Joey..Monica..Phoebe..And Rachel for that greedy behavior, that moderately talented cast pulled the same scammed in the 90's and we still watched.
So lets see, who's responsible for this financial feat, is it early 2000 acclaimed bit part movie cast member of "Garden State" and "School for Scoundrels". Off Broadway waiter/actor Jim Parsons, known for playing Sheldon Cooper on the CBS sitcom "The Big Bang Theory", who came to television by way of a much discussed 2003 Quiznos commercial, He played a guy who had been raised by wolves and continued to nurse from his wolf "mother".
On the network TV scene he had a recurring role on the television show "Judging Amy" and appeared on the television series "Ed", all the above most of us missed entirely...all none of which a million dollar salaried superstar actor makes.
And how about Johnny Galecki best known playing Chevy Chase's kid in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation in 1989. On ABC's Roseanne Barr's show he was daughter Darlene's boyfriend nerdy,fugly messy haired David Healy The big fave was his bit part in 1997's "I Know What You Did Last Summer" And" Hancock'' in, 2008.
Now all the buzz for him is regarding his million dollar role as Dr. Leonard Hofstadter in The Big Bang Theory since 2007. Really one million dollars? The $300k salary was stretching it...is it because he makes that face that looks like he's holding in a fart.
Owl eyed Kaley Cuoco,who was known by ABC fan's for her roles as Bridget Hennessy on the ABC sitcom "8 Simple Rules". And before that Billie Jenkins on the final season of the supernatural drama series "Charmed" on the CW. Is milllion dollar Penny on the CBS comedy series 'The Big Bang Theory'.
That scored her a Critics' Choice Television Award in 2013 and a People's Choice Award in 2014. Is the Jennifer Anniston of the cast and the only reason anybody watches. And to be honest it all kicked in with fan's after she appeared in the 2010 film The Penthouse...vavava boom... yowser, And tipped it in 2011, when she appeared in Allure magazine's annual "Naked Truth" feature. A good agent should demand that the other actors on the show give her 10 percent of their salary to her or she walks.
She's the only reason anybody watches, and get this, fellow actor Johnny Galecki claims that he"Big Banged"her when they dated. Until she dumped him for the guy she recently married...Johnny should pony up 20 percent for all that street credit...it helped him score another actress'.
Thank God "Blossom's" big ugly old Mayim Bialik is on the show to calm the male viewers down during "Big Bang Theory", before their left hand cramps up, from watching Kaley in those little outfits.
But in all seriousness viewers should get paid 1 percent of the actors salary a year,after all they have a job because we watch. Or it's time to boycott,'The Big Bang Theory'...and the $216 million dollars from 72 episodes being put toward comedic evil.
Before the CBS series about geeky scientist pals and the women who love them returns Sept. 22.
