Simpsons cast Gets a raise

The cast of the Simpson’s recently settled a new 4 year contract that will earn each of the major actors $400,000 per episode.

Read about it here.

Kudos to you! Some may balk at that (“they’re just talking into a mic!”), but I think they deserve every cent. Even ignoring those who don’t understand the sheer work that goes into creating these characters, from a financial standpoint, it makes sense. These voices ARE the characters and are what allow Fox to make money hand over fist on things such as merchandising, DVD sales, and re-runs. Fox makes gobs of money from the work of these actors and they deserve to see a good portion of it.
