AMC’s hit drama, Mad Men, pays close to $10million to keep its star character for 3 more seasons.
Jon Hamm, star of AMC’s hit drama Mad Men, has just renewed his contract. In the deal, Hamm agreed to another three years of the show, and he’s getting a hefty raise, too. The actor will be paid $250,000 per episode. Given that the three-year contract includes 39 episodes, Hamm should be netting nearly $10 million by the time his contract is up and the Mad Men saga is over. It seems like a whopping sum, but without Hamm’s character, Don Draper, Mad Men would quickly lose its luster for many fans. Mashable
