But he added: 'At the same time, I'd be bashing my head against the wall'.

He told Rogen he now lives "a life of leisure" with a property portfolio in the U.S. and overseas. The original five series regulars ― Cuoco, Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kunal Nayyar, Simon Helberg ― each take home $1 million per episode.
