"The Big Bang Theory" actresses Melissa Rauch and Mayim Bialik are seeking bumps in pay for their work.
The two earn significantly less than the original five cast members-Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Kunal Nayyar and Simon Helberg.
Rauch and Bialik sit in the $200,000 per episode range and the other five are closer to one-million an episode.
In contract renewal talks, the original cast agreed to take a $100,000 cut in salary for the next two seasons to free up $500,000 to give to Rauch and Bialik.
This could give the two almost $21 million for the two-year, 48 episode deal.
