'Two and a Half Men' Cast Sign Deals To Return For Season 10: [ send to a friend ]
Ashton Kutcher, Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones have signed deals to return to 'Two and a Half Men' for another season.
The new deals will give the cast small raises from their already hefty salaries.
Kutcher, who had been shooting for $1 million per episode, will be reportedly paid $725,000 per episode, up from $700,000, while Cryer will earn slightly less and Jones will take home $300,000 an episode.
The studio was looking to lock up the cast for another two seasons, however, Jones -- who has been doing the comedy since he was 10 -- did not want to commit because he wants to move on from the show.
'Men' co-creator and executive producer Chuck Lorre has indicated he would like to end the series after its tenth season.
However, Warner Bros TV isn't so eager to wrap up the still highly profitable cash cow.
Meanwhile, 'Two and a Half Men' showrunner Lee Aronsohn, who came under fire for comments he made about female-centric comedies, has decided to step down. No reason was given for the change.
