Wow, Looks Like Mark Wahlberg is a Pretty Slippery Snake

Those angered by reports that Mark Wahlberg was paid significantly more than co-star Michelle Williams on reshoots for All the Money in the World won't like this: the actor reportedly made sure he got paid a lot.

Williams previously told USA TODAY that when Scott's team called to request her time for the reshoot, "I said I'd be wherever they needed me, whenever they needed me".

But the Oscar victor would not be allowed to step into the role until Wahlberg got his way, with the latter's lawyer writing a letter to financiers demanding the payment for his work over the Thanksgiving holiday.

A representative for Mark Wahlberg has been contacted for comment.

Since the story broke that Wahlberg chose to use the #MeToo moment to profit from reshooting the film, The Wrap has reported that reshoots weren't in Wahlberg's contract while they were in Williams's. According to TMZ's report, the Transformers alum also agreed to redo the scenes with Williams and Spacey's replacement, Christopher Plummer, but he and Scott did not discuss his compensation at the time. But a new report inUSA Today suggests that the situation was perhaps even worse than originally thought: the actor allegedly refused to work with Christopher Plummer, who was brought on to replace Kevin Spacey, unless Wahlberg was paid over a million dollars. But the new USA Today story debunks both of those claims, reporting that both actors had reshoots included their contracts. "She deserves more than 1% of her male costar's salary", Chastain added. 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.

Let's not forget, it was Williams who walked away from the film with a Golden Globe nomination.

According to The Washington Post, Wahlberg, the highest paid actor of the year, "along with manager Stephen Levinson and agency WME, have a reputation in Hollywood for driving a tough bargain". "I wonder if the studio or Wahlberg will do something to make the situation less insane", he wrote.
