Good for him!
A jury has awarded actor Don Johnson $23.2 million in profits after he filed a lawsuit claiming he owned 50 percent of the copyright to the show Nash Bridges.
Producers from Rysher Entertainment said it had lost money and that's why he wasn't paid, but the jury agreed with Don. He says:
"It was my idea and I owned the rights in the first place. I have waited for more than 10 years for Rysher to recognize me as the co-owner of the Nash Bridges series. From the beginning, I have asked only that Rysher honor our contract and I am so pleased that the jury agreed with me."
Rysher's lawyer says that they plan to appeal.
But Johnson could even make another $25 million since Nash Bridges is still shown in 45 countries!
