On of the supporting players on "Big Bang Theory" has gotten a sizable raise, reports Deadline.com.
Simon Helberg, the actor who plays Howard Wolowitz on "The Big Bang Theory," has received a raise, with his per-episode salary more than tripling to $125,000 from $40,000, the article says.
Helberg and his co-star Kunal Nayyar started salary renegotiations after the show’s leading three actors, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, and Jim Parsons, finished their salary talks in September, the story notes.
Those three received salary bumps rising from $60,000 last season to $250,000 in season five, $300,000 in season six and $350,000 in season seven, the article adds.
With Helberg ending his renegotiations, the only "Big Bang" cast member that hasn’t reached an agreement for a higher salary is Nayyar, the story notes. It’s expected that a deal will come for Nayyar, who is currently receiving $25,000 per episode, it says.
