However, despite voicing one of the show’s most popular characters, DiMaggio is currently not on the board after negotiations reached an impasse regarding pay.
“I’ve been thinking about everything that’s been going on these past few months and to be more specific, I don’t think I alone deserve to be paid more. I think the entire cast does the same,” DiMaggio tweeted Tuesday night. “Negotiation is a natural part of program business. Everyone has a different strategy and different boundaries… Some accept the offer, some stand their ground.”
