It sounds like FOX is playing hardball to cut the VA salaries. It's one of those things that could backfire, though, because if they don't duck in their game of chicken, nobody's going to watch a recast Futurama.

I know... from the outside it can be hard to tell in these sort of things whether it's just greed or actually reasonable on the part of the studio, since actors should get a fair salary, but shouldn't expect to basically break the entire budget of the company.

In this case though, I find it really really hard to believe that pretty much the entire cast list is demanding totally unreasonable salaries. Which just makes it completely stupid on FOX's part (oh wait, it's FOX, that's kinda redundant) since if they can't bring back even *most* of the previous cast, they might as well just not bother at all. It's not like they'd get the fans back watching it, anyhow...

Except, of course, there's a possibility that the voice actors might be good/interesting/fun. I hear rumour that there are more than a dozen voice actors looking for work!

Good news everyone!
It's just an idiotic Executive decision, like canceling Firefly, or calling themselves "fair and balanced." All the Executives do things like that in the Network of Stupidity.

But yeah, what you said =P
