Mark Wahlberg Refused to Approve Kevin Spacey's Replacement Unless He Got Paid

Entertainment  YouTube

It was depressing enough that most of the film's cast and crew worked for nothing during Thanksgiving week because former star Kevin Spacey assaulted and harassed many, many young boys (Michelle Williams took $80 per diem), but Wahlberg's greedy stand-off is beyond reprehensible.

"... Formally vetoed the Oscar victor [Plummer] in a letter to financiers until his demand for additional payment was met".

Mark Wahlberg really played his cards to score a massive paycheck for All The Money In The World reshoots!

Scott replaced Spacey with Christopher Plummer and re-shot the scenes just six weeks before the film's release.

USA Today published a report on Thursday, January 11, saying that the actor - who had costar approval in his contract - wouldn't approve the change when Spacey was removed from the movie after several men came forward accusing him of sexual misconduct.

Before the reports of Wahlberg's salary got out, Williams said the following of All the Money in the World reshoots to USA Today: "I said I'd be wherever they needed me, whenever they needed me".

Williams and Wahlberg are both represented by Williams Morris Endeavor, and some critics have accused the talent agency of failing to inform the Oscar-nominated actress of her co-start's lucrative arrangement.

Neither star has commented on this latest development.

A spokesperson for SAG-AFTRA (Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists) has said that if Williams was paid the minimum amount that she could be paid, they wouldn't be able to do anything about it, as Wahlberg had neogtiated his above-scale rate.

'Everyone did it for nothing, ' he told USA Today. "They all came in for free".

Williams, meanwhile, could be looking at her fifth Academy Award nod for her work in the film when the honorees are announced next week.

'I'm so much more interested in what you have to say than what I have to say, ' Williams told reporters about her date on the red carpet.
