Matthew Fox Brokers Lucrative New 'Lost' Deal

Actor Matthew Fox has reached a new pay deal with TV bosses, taking his "Lost" salary to $225,000 per episode.

The star's wage negotiations were first highlighted earlier this week, when Fox and his co-star Evangeline Lilly were rumored to be seeking a $70,000 pay rise to keep them on the hit drama.

But Fox has now signed a lucrative new contract with ABC Studios executives, putting him in the same pay bracket as the main stars of another successful ABC series, "Desperate Housewives."

The rest of the "Lost" cast are still reportedly trying to broker new wage deals, but representatives for ABC Studios and Fox have refused to comment.


You read that correctly. That's 4 million plus dollars for a single season (assuming there are 18 episodes).

Did I mention that I want his job?

What is more fascinating is when you see how much air time the characters have. katieb from spoiler TV sat down and timed how much screen time each character got in the entires season 4. Her results are as follows:

1. Jack - 2:28:20 - 25.34%
2. Kate - 2:15:01 - 23.07%
3. Sayid - 1:56:44 - 19.94%
4. Ben - 1:55:58 - 19.81%
5. Hurley - 1:50:19 - 18.85%
6. Locke - 1:39:38 - 17.02%
7. Desmond - 1:25:17 - 14.57%
8. Juliet - 1:22:55 - 14.16%
9. Sawyer - 1:08:51 - 11.76%
10. Sun - 1:05:27 - 11.18%
11. Dan - 0:57:19 - 9.79%
12. Frank - 0:55:11 - 9.43%
13. Miles - 0:45:30 - 7.77%
14. Michael - 0:40:55 - 6.99%
15. Jin - 0:38:42 - 6.56%
16. Charlotte - 0:36:34 - 6.25%
17. Claire - 0:36:12 - 6.18%
18. Charlie - 0:02:29 - 0.42%


Now if this is similar for season 5 then Matthew Fox will be earning about $1.6 million per hour of screen time!
