John DiMaggio has given a small update on twitter.
I've been thinking about everything that's been going on these past months and just to be clear, I don't think that only I deserve to be paid more. I think the entire cast does.
Negotiations are a natural part of working in show business. Everyone has a different strategy & different boundaries. Their "price." Some accept offers, some hold their ground. Bender is part of my soul & nothing about this meant to be disrespectful to the fans or my Futurama family. It's all about self-respect. And honestly, being tired of an industry that's become far too corporate and takes advantage of artist's time & talent.
Look, I wish I could give you every detail so you would understand, but it's not my place. Thanks again for the love everyone. Still hoping for the best.
In the meantime I'll be in New Orleans shooting interview with a vampire for AMC - and very grateful to be! Thanks...
We 100% stand with John and other talented voice actors. Professional voice actors have been taken for granted for far too long. They deserve the recognition and be paid accordingly. If they want this new Futurama season to be a success they have to respect the ones that made it big. We as fans will not stand for anything else.
