The cast of Lost gets a huge upgrade...

 

The cast of Lost is about to get a fatter paycheck.

For signing on to an extra year on the ABC ratings hit, Touchstone Television has offered all original members of the ensemble – including Matthew Fox, Evangeline Lilly, Josh Holloway, Naveen Andrews, Dominic Monaghan, Terry O'Quinn, Jorge Garcia, Daniel Dae Kim, Yunjin Kim and Harold Perrineau – nearly $80,000 each per episode next season, says the Hollywood Reporter.

Currently, the actors are said to be earning between $20,000 and $40,000 per show. Fox, however, reportedly earned an extra bonus of at least $250,000 for playing the pivotal role of Jack.

Reps for Touchstone TV and the Lost actors declined comment.

The trade paper notes that a similar behind-the-scene scenario took place on Desperate Housewives, another ABC hit. Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, Marcia Cross and Eva Longoria reputedly went into the series making between $20,000-$40,000, then received bonuses of $250,000 midway though the show's first season as well as equal salary bumps for Season 2, bringing their per-episode fees to the high-five to low-six figures, the Reporter adds.

Damn, they don't get paid shit. I thought they would, at least, be receiving $100,000 per episode. I'm guessing because it's a new series.  Shit, I'm glad they're getting a raise 'cause that shit was ridiculous.

Edit: I saw this first at lost_tv

EDIT #2: OMG, I just found out Emilie de Ravin (Claire) was on Beastmaster! I am so shocked. I can't believe I didn't recognize her. OH. MY. GOD. lol It also seems that her name was not mentioned in the above article. Does this mean she's not getting a raise? Is she getting KILLED off? Hmmm...
