Fox Brokers Lucrative New Lost Deal
LATEST: Actor MATTHEW FOX has reached a new pay deal with TV bosses, taking his LOST salary to $225,000 (GBP112,500) per episode.
The star's wage negotiations were first highlighted earlier this week (begs11Aug08), when Fox and his co-star Evangeline Lilly were rumoured to be seeking a $70,000 (GBP35,000) pay rise to keep them on the hit drama.
But Fox has now signed a lucrative new contract with ABC Studios executives, putting him in the same pay bracket as the main stars of another successful ABC series, Desperate Housewives.
The rest of the Lost cast are still reportedly trying to broker new wage deals, but representatives for ABC Studios and Fox have refused to comment.
