After months of intense negotiations and threats of quitting, Steven Van Zandt, who plays Silvio Dante, and Tony Sirico, who plays Paulie "Walnuts" Gualtieri, reached a deal with HBO to take about $85,000 per episode -- almost double last season's price, said The Hollywood Reporter.
The bargaining between the goodfellas and the cable network continued to be hashed out while the rest of the show's cast had already been able to secure much more attractive deals.
Aida Turturro (Janice) wil pull down $130,000-$140,000, while Jamie-Lynn Sigler (Meadow) and Robert Iler (Tony Jr.) get $110,000-$120,000 apiece.
