Mark Wahlberg refused to approve the casting of Christopher Plummer as a replacement for Kevin Spacey in All the Money Wahlberg had the right to approve co-stars in his contract, the newspaper claims. “What he said was , ‘I will not approve Christopher Plummer unless you pay me.’

Mark Wahlberg Refused to Approve Christopher Plummer ’s Getty Casting Unless He Was Paid . When Scott asked his costars to return for reshoots over the Thanksgiving holiday last year, he told USA Today that besides Plummer , the rest of his cast did it for free.

Wahlberg had co-star approval in his contract, two people familiar with the situation but not authorized to speak publicly about it tell USA TODAY.

Another Hollywood insider says Wahlberg's lawyer formally vetoed the Oscar winner in a letter to financiers until his demand for additional payment was met.

A lawyer and a rep for Wahlberg did not immediately respond to a request for comment. His talent agency, William Morris Endeavor, which took part in negotiating the contract, had no comment.

EXCLUSIVE : The pay gap scandal gets uglier: Mark Wahlberg refused to approve Christopher Plummer as his co-star until he got .5Mhttps Exclusive : Mark Wahlberg refused to approve Christopher Plummer unless he was paid .

The news comes as the pay gap between Wahlberg and Williams spirals into a war of words over what was or was not in their contracts.

The Wrap reported Thursday that Wahlberg, who was paid $1.5 million for his "more extensive" All the Money in the World reshoots over the Thanksgiving holiday, did not have reshoots included in his contract and was therefore able to negotiate more pay for his extra time.

The Wrap said Williams' contract included reshoots, contributing to why she was paid just an $80 per diem for her time. That works out to Williams being paid less than one-tenth of 1% of her male co-star.

Ridley Scott’s Getty kidnapping drama was hastily reshot the week of Thanksgiving after a cascade of sexual misconduct allegations were made public against Spacey, who had starred in the drama as billionaire J. Paul Getty.

Wahlberg and Williams are both represented by WME. Actors pay a team of agents, managers and lawyers an average of 10% of their salaries to advocate for them. Talent agencies commonly argue its their fiduciary duty to get the best monetary outcomes for their clients.

In August, Forbes named Wahlberg the highest-paid actor of the year, calculating his pretax and prefee earnings at $68 million.

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. And they could have my salary, they could have my holiday, whatever they wanted. Because I appreciated so much that they were making this massive effort."

Turns Out Michelle Williams’ Entire All The Money In The World Salary Was Eight Times Lower Than Mark Wahlberg’s .
The pay gap was a problem before the movie’s emergency reshoots.That seemed like a very nice end to a very frustrating situation, but it turns out the pay gap between Williams and Wahlberg started with each actors’ base salary for All The Money. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Williams was paid $625,000 for her work while Wahlberg made $5 million. The two had roughly equal screen time in the movie, and Williams has been nominated for a Golden Globe for her performance.
