According to Deadline Hollywood, Baker’s original five-year contract is being extended an additional season; he’s in season three right now. The new deal gives him a bigger piece of the profits as the episodes are sold into syndication and will give him a producer credit beginning in season five.

It’s essentially a $10 million a year package for the next three seasons beginning in the Fall.

While not quite Charlie Sheen money — he makes almost $30 million a season! — the deal is presumably giving the 41-year-old Australian actor one very merry Christmas.
