It's pretty late in the summer for these kind of negotiations to still be going on!
Even though the first table read for the next season of ABC's Modern Family is set for Tuesday, five of the comedy's castmembers have YET to renew their contracts for the show, as they are demanding SERIOUS raises!
According to series insiders, Sofia Vergara, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Eric Stonestreet and Jesse Tyler Ferguson are reportedly demanding $200,000 per episode, with the promise that it will go up with each season the show stays on!
Ed O'Neill, however, already makes significantly more than others, so it's unclear if he's standing united with his castmates!
Given the amount of Emmys this show is awarded every year, we certainly can't blame them for wanting to be compensated accordingly!
But isn't Sofia already the highest-paid actress on TV these days??
Oh wait, a majority of that came from endorsements and movie deals!
Guess these producers better start paying up if they want to keep winning awards! Just saying!
