Simon Baker just made a $30 million deal with Warner Bros. Television for his CBS show The Mentalist!
His five-year contract has been extended to an additional season, giving him a bigger cut of the show's syndication profits, as well as giving him a producer credit beginning in season five.
With the show currently in its third season, that means he will be getting $10 million a year for the next three years!!
The Mentalist has been a CBS hit, being one of the most DVR-ed shows on TV. Cray cray!
Good work, Simon! Great way to ring in the new year!
