John Galecki as Leonard Hofstadter – Now
In real life, John was involved in many projects before he landed a starring role on The Big Bang Theory. However, none of them exploded in the same way as Leonard did. Audiences could not get enough. The character has won John many awards, including an Emmy for the leading role in a comedy television series. When season eight was in the works, John renegotiated his salary from $350,000 per episode, to nearly $1 million.
