How long til Nancy gets thrown to the curb once the money stops coming in ?

After 23 years on TV, The Simpsons might finally be about to come to an end — and all because of a dispute over money.

According to the Daily Beast, 20th Century Fox has demanded that The Simpsons' six main voice actors take a whopping 45 per cent pay cut in any potential future seasons of the show. Naturally, the cast — Dan Castellaneta, Julie Kavner, Nancy Cartwright, Yeardley Smith, Hank Azaria and Harry Shearer — aren't happy about it.

"The show has made billions in profits over the years and will continue to do so as far as the eye can see down the road," blabbed an insider. "The actors are willing to take a pay cut of roughly a third, but that’s not good enough for Fox."

On the one hand, the actors each currently make about US$8 million a year (approximately US$400,000 per episode), and even if they take the pay cut their salaries will still be more than US$4 million

Anyone else notice a pattern here ??

Cartwright was in a relationship with contractor Stephen Brackett.[74] They planned to get married in Spring 2008.[16][75] Brackett was the President and Treasurer of Brackett Construction in Hollywood, California; the construction company was founded in 1987 and had $8.5 million in sales in 2009.[76] He was a fellow member of Scientology,[75] reaching the Operating Thetan level of OT V in Scientology, in 1989.[77] He died in May 2009.[78] According to The Monterey County Herald, Brackett leaped off of the Bixby Creek Bridge in Big Sur, California.[78] Law enforcement stated, "friends and relatives of Brackett said he was despondent because of financial troubles with his business."[78] In September 2010, it was announced Cartwright was being sued by the executives of American Safety Casualty Insurance Company over a policy covering refurbishment work Stephen Bracket failed to finish before his death.

They should not take a cut in pay unless there is some clearly stated stipulation for later earnings based on future sales of boxed sets of the upcoming seasons as well as new memoribilia that spawns by reason of influence from the new seasons.

Who the hell owns Fox these days? The Church of Scientology?

Nancy and her family and including the hapless Steve have given the cult big bucks. Millions. Little dwarf gave them a piece of paper and a photograph.

If Bart Simpson refuses to do the voice for Cartwright she's finished. He's got her in a grip of iron.

Because they can. It's called 'capitalism'.
