Ted Lasso is doing well for Apple TV+, and the streaming service is rewarding the team responsible with a round of pay bumps, including a cool million dollars per episode for star Jason Sudeikis, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
According to sources, Sudeikis has closed a deal that will net him $1 million per episode for Ted Lasso Season 3, up from a reported $250,000 to $300,000 per episode for the first two seasons. Other cast members scored raises as well, including Brendan Hunt, Brett Goldstein, Hannah Waddingham, Juno Temple, who have been boosted from $50,000 to $75,000 per episode up to $125,000 to $150,000.
