Variety is reporting that CBS’s offer to both actors was lower than series co-stars Alex O’Loughlin and Scott Caan. Not only were salary offers allegedly 10-15% lower than their two co-stars but they also did not include a back-end percentage from the show’s proceeds either.
Executive producer Peter Lenkov has shared on Twitter that he will miss the two actors as the series begins production on season 8.
I agree. But… No one will miss them more than me https://t.co/0pLYVadbsR
