According to the report, he also mentioned being asked to take a pay cut so that the rest of the cast can get a raise.
“I remember thinking, ‘Hold up, who’s giving them the raise? Me or y’all?’ Like we made you guys three-quarters of a billion dollars, you can’t afford to pay them what I’m making on this? Screw that,” the ‘FRIENDS’ actor said.
As per The Hollywood Reporter, the cast of the film consisted of actors Sarah Michelle Gellar, Matthew Lillard and Linda Cardellini.
