Viewing Single Post From: Wally Kurth to return as Justin Kiriakis

I guess what I'm still getting at is, what does "very high paying" mean in this context? Half a million a year? A million a year? I mean, I literally haven't the slightest clue what soap head writers make, which is why it makes it very hard to figure how much effect JER's ending contract would have. I'm still puzzled at how a contract for personal services couldn't terminate on the writer's death; I'd like to see that contract. Or, why didn't Corday try to buy it out? I guess maybe he did and we don't know.

I will say that this discussion is more interesting to me than any storyline involving Danloe/Lucas, Melanie, Will and Mia, or Stephanie (as currently written), so there's that.
Deidre was paid 1,3 mil. for her last year, after all the budget cuts and with limited guarantee. No way was JER pair worse than her, so accounting much better financial situation of the show in 2003 and JER being the biggest name in the biz (with the biggest ego), I think 4-5 mil. a year is a good quess.
