EXCLUSIVE: Matt Bomer and Tim DeKay are back at work on Season 3 of USA Network’s series White Collar, both with nice pay raises.

I hear that the two actors renegotiated separately their deals with White Collar producer Fox TV Studios, each receiving a significant salary bump in return for adding an extra year to their current contracts for the show. Bomer and DeKay’s new paychecks are said to be in the $80,000-$100,000 per episode range, with Bomer, who plays the show’s central character, con man Neal Caffrey, getting slightly more. The two actors’ previous salaries were in the $50,000s per episode range.

Renegotiating actors’ deals for higher compensation in exchange for an additional year to their contracts is common practice after the second season of successful series.
