After a surprisingly contentious negotiation, Modern Family’s six adult leads have agreed to a deal. They’re rumored to be making somewhere around $170,000-180,000 an episode next season, with a raise every following year and a back-end cut. This is up from $65,000 an episode but slightly less than the $200,000 they originally wanted. With the pay bump, they also agreed to extend their contracts from seven to eight seasons. So all is good with the Pritchett family? Not so fast. Now the Modern Family kids are asking for more money. It’s amazing what children pick up from their parents. Though this negotiation is not likely to be as heated. Rico Rodriguez (Manny), Nolan Gould (Luke aka THE BEST) and Ariel Winter (Alex) were all making around $10,000-$12,000, so a pay increase, considering their importance to the show, seems very necessary. And we thought all the families had nice houses before.
