Cowabunga






The voice cast of "The Simpsons" has reached a new four-year deal with 20th Century Fox TV, the Hollywood Reporter says. The actors will get a salary increase to nearly $400,000 per episode, the newspaper says. The voice cast is expected to be back at work Tuesday for a table read.


$400,000 a week - a WEEK!! - to sit in a comfy voice studio and read lines written on a piece of paper.

Sigh. I'm in the wrong business.

Thats obscene. Seriously.

It is obscene Velma because not only do they make $400,000 a week but it's not like they actually work a 40 hour work week. They are probably in and out of that recording studio in about 2 or 3 hours at most the day they have to tape a show. And they get $400 grand for that. Now I'm just winding down my work day on this Tuesday, sitting at my damn desk in my damn cubicle every day five days a week and 49 weeks a year - and after all that I won't even make CLOSE to what they make for one of those recording sessions of one "week".
