"The Big Bang Theory" cast is set for an explosive new pay deal. The show's stars Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki will make $200,000-per-episode, according to U.S. reports.
They are currently earning $60,000 for every episode they film, but thanks to the popularity of the sitcom, bosses at U.S. network CBS have increased the trio's salaries by $140,000 each, according to GossipCop.com. Galecki, Cuoco and Parsons, who won the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series Emmy in August, will also take home an extra $50,000 increase for the next three seasons.
The news is sure to aid Cuoco's recovery after after breaking her leg in a horseriding accident.
