Gary Sinise Gets Pay Boost for 'CSI: NY'
CBS/Paramount has quietly signed a new deal with Gary Sinise, who stars as Det. Mac Taylor on the CBS drama CSI: NY. Beyond extending his contract through the 2010-11 season, Sinise will now earn north of $200,000 per episode. The actor already has a producer’s credit on the show, which is now in its fourth year (it averaged 12.7 million in its premiere week). Co-star Melina Kanakaredes (Det. Stella Bonasera) is in the midst of negotiations as well, but no deal has been set.
