The Mentalist's Simon Baker Signs $30 Million Deal

| Filed under: TV NewsBusiness Blitz



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!

    Is he Queer ? He looks it .

    Where is the $30mm for Shawn and Gus? The Mentalist is a second-rate, copy-cat show.

  3. 3

    Honestly, I like Simon Baker but the show is HOKEY as hell in so many ways. I hate the way it is shot and written. It must be that missing-GHOST WHISPERER and MURDER SHE WROTE slash MONK crowd getting reeled in by this half-rate entertainment.

    Good. I love Simon and I love him in "The Mentalist". His American accent is so convincing that a lot of viewers have forgotten that he is in fact, Australian.

  5. 5

    $30M? He must suck some serious cock.

  6. 6

    I love this show–and he is wonderful in it—I'll be watching

  7. 7

    I've never watched a single episode.

    And this British invasion is getting tiresome.

  8. 8

    British, Aussie, Kiwi, enough already.

  9. 9

    Love him since LA Confidential and the Devil Wears Prada! He is married with 2 kids. But, he is so cute.

    It's a total rip-off of Psych, which is better in pretty much every way, imo.

  11. 11

    Don't ever say "cray cray" again. Stupid.

    Such a shame, The Guardian was a brilliant show and Simon's character was one of the great tv characters, but the people want cliche shit, you suck people

    The show is good but I don't think that it's good to the tune of 30million. Re: caroaber – I have to agree with you 100% They can't get a job in their own country so they come over here and take away a job and money from one of the actors here. Then they go back to their country and spend the $$ they made here. I won't watch a show anymore if even one of the actors has an accent. Enough already.

    He can buy much more expensive hair products now ;-)

    Re: buggadaboo – You do realise producers ask these actors to come and audition, right? They don't 'take away a job', they are given one by an American producer because, apparently, the Americans who came to audition just weren't good enough or what they were looking for.
