Fans are understandably pumped.
“He deserves it. It’s the best show on streaming. By far,” one fan wrote.
“He is worth every penny. I don’t know how he does what he does and the rest of the cast does, but they are magic together,” another fan added.
“Worth it. The show is fantastic…. and each episode of season 2 is better than the previous one,” another fan added.
Sudeikis isn’t the only actor getting a pay raise, either. According to the report, multiple actors on the hit show have renegotiated for more money.
