Big Bump for 'Big Bang' Co-Star--And a Look at All the Salaries Deadline.com
After most of his co-stars received substantial raises, the last of the original stars of CBS's "The Big Bang Theory," Kunal Nayyar, has received a major salary bump, reports Deadline.com.
Nayyar, who plays Raj, will reportedly go from making about $25,000 per episode to about $75,000 per show. That's still less than co-star Simon Helberg, whose latest raise reportedly puts him over $100,000, but Nayyar’s deal may include a bonus that brings him closer overall to Helberg, the story says.
After earlier negotiations, co-stars Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons and Kaley Cuoco reportedly all make about $200,000 per episode, with built-in $50,000 raises each year for the next three seasons.
