Simon Baker now officially mega-rich

The Mentalist star Simon Baker has just made a career move that means he’s set for life.  Warner Bros. have offered Baker $30 million dollars to extend his acting contract to six seasons (the show is in the middle of the third season at the moment), and after season four Baker will also be getting a credit as producer, which means big time bucks.

$30 million should be enough to pay the rent and keep the electric company from shutting off the power.  This deal is also good news for fans of the show, as The Mentalist is one of the most popular programs in the CBS lineup.  This means we get at least three more years of crime solving!
