If Bones garners the eighth season we all want it to, several of the cast members will come out looking a little greener for it. No, not sick-green, but money-green... and we’re talking big money!

That’s right: Michaela Conlin (Angela), TJ Thyne (Hodgins), Tamara Taylor (Cam), and John Francis Daley (Sweets) are poised to net mid-five-figure contracts per episode in the as-yet mythical Bones Season 8. Now, granted, these heavy hitters were already making in the $30,000-$40,000 range (we repeat: per episode), but this will put them somewhere around 50k.

What about the big names? David Boreanaz (Booth) rakes in $200,000 a show and Emily Deschanel (Brennan) "slightly less." Behold! The glass ceiling!

That's a lot of lettuce! Is anyone else having trouble not doing double takes on this one? Heck, we might as well admit that we’re looking a little green, too — with envy, that is!
