Why Mark Wahlberg Got "All the Money" Pay Bump Over Michelle Williams

Mark Wahlberg wouldn't approve Christopher Plummer unless he got paid $1.5 million for reshoots Mark Wahlberg reportedly refused to approve Christopher Plummer without $1 million pay check

Earlier this week, USA Today reported that Mark Wahlberg made $1.5 million for the reshoots while co-star Michelle Williams made less than $1,000-and now the newspaper has uncovered additional information on why Wahlberg was paid 1,000 times more than Williams. But a source told USA Today that Wahlberg and Williams, both clients of William Morris Endeavor (the talent agency that negotiated the Spacey scandal payout for Wahlberg) had reshoots worked into their contracts.

Now a new report has emerged, again from USA Today, that Wahlberg refused to approve Plummer as Spacey's replacement unless his $1.5 million fee was secured for reshoots. The second source, a Hollywood insider, said that Wahlberg's lawyer formally vetoed the Oscar victor in a letter to financiers until his demand for more payment was met.

However the reported Wahlberg's reshoot fee in November and noted he, "along with manager Stephen Levinson and agency WME, have a reputation in Hollywood for driving a tough bargain".

She later stated that her source is '100 percent reliable'.

Of the reshoots, Williams has previously explained, "I said I'd be wherever they needed me, whenever they needed me".

The lawsuit, which asks for an injunction and at least $5 million in damages, was filed in NY federal court on Wednesday. Busch writes that Rae wanted to involve in the process her boyfriend, Tim Holland , who was a marketing manager for Sony.

She also made a point of stressing the fact that giving up her holiday and working without pay were both sacrifices she was happy to make given the situation.

"Everyone did it for nothing", Scott told USA Today last month. But Michelle, no. Me, no. The actress, 37, was reportedly paid an $80 per diem.

Plummer, who was brought in to replace Spacey, and the crew of the film were all fully compensated for their work on the reshoot. It looks like the only thing it would take to get Marky Mark to take time out of his busy pants-dropping schedule is some good old-fashioned co-star leveraging.

This just sheds so much light on how these costars ended up getting paid so differently - but we have yet to hear directly from either actor about the massive gap.
