CBS and Warner Bros. TV made the decision to end The Big Bang Theory in 2019because star Jim Parsons was ready to walk away from the hit sitcom, EW has learned exclusively. With a reported salary near $1 million per episode, Parsons — along with his four original costars Kaley Cuoco, Johnny Galecki, Kunal Nayyar, and Simon Helberg — stood to make more than $50 million including profits if he agreed to stay on TBBT for two more years, which is what CBS was trying to negotiate.
Jim Parsons plays a nerd on his hit show "The Big Bang Theory," but in real life, the 45-year-old actor owns a home in the trendy L.A. neighborhood of Los Feliz.
Jim Parsons drew inspiration from a classic Britney Spears video while he was auditioning for grad schools in the late '90s.
The season premiere of "The Big Bang Theory" was full of shocking moments and Amy's long-awaited response to Sheldon's proposal was only one of them.
You would think starring in one of the year’s top movies would let you easily gain access to the Oscars, but Hidden Figures star Jim Parsons was almost denied entry to the 89th Annual Academy Awards. First, he realized he wasn’t carrying any form of photo identification to get into the Oscars, so he returned home, intending to grab his wallet. Parsons also joked about not teaching his dogs to open doors and even name-checked his suit designer, Isaia, in case he couldn’t do it in person on the red carpet.
According to a study in The Hollywood Reporter, Robert De Niro will make $750,000 for each of twenty episodes of a new Amazon series from David O. Russell. The pair previously made Joy and Silver Linings Playbook, two of the only positively reviewed movies in which De Niro has appeared in the last decade. Meryl Streep has bested her former Deer Hunter costar with $825,000 per episode for The Nix, a J.J. Abrams produced project that doesn’t have a network attached and has nothing to do with Patrick Ewing.
