SCRUBS star Zach Braff is set to become one of the highest paid actors on TV if the hit sitcom gets renewed by US network NBC for a seventh season.
According to sources, the 31-year-old actor has landed a deal that will earn him around $350,000 (GBP179,000) per episode for the 2007-08 season.
The new deal will put him in the top echelon of highest-paid male actors on US television, alongside TWO AND HALF MEN star Charlie Sheen, whose paycheque is also in the $350,000 per episode range.
Braff, who also wrote, directed and starred in the 2004 independent romantic comedy Garden State, plays Dr John 'J.D.' DORIAN on the show.
