Brennan and Booth’s BONES Squints Cash In
The squints of Bones must be feeling pretty good right now that contract negotiations between them and 20th Century Fox TV have come to end and everyone received a nice little pay bump. Michaela Conlin (Angela), T.J. Thyne (Hodgins), Tamara Taylor (Dr. Saroyan) and John Francis Daley (Sweets) all signed on for an eighth season should the series be renewed (and renewal is expected).
The four castmembers were making $30,000 to $40,000 per episode, and while it’s not specifically known what they’ll be making now, a source told The Hollywood Reporter the number is in the mid-five figures. The deal is retroactive, meaning it takes effect for the current season as well as future seasons. Conlin and Thyne are both original castmembers with the current seventh season was the last in their contract before signing for the eighth. Emily Deschanel (Brennan) and David Boreanaz (Booth) had already negotiated their contracts, and while neither’s figures were released it’s speculated Boreanaz makes about $200,000 per episode. That is quite a bit more than the squints make. Is that fair? I know he’s the star and more widely known, but that’s a steep difference in salary.
Money talk aside, these new deals are a great indicator of renewal for Bones. As far as crime procedurals go, it’s one of my favorites. No formal discussions for renewing Bones have taken place yet, but entertainment president of Fox, Kevin Reilly, said, “the producer would like to keep it going; and we’d like to keep it going.”
