PARK CITY - It's hard to believe that there's any downside to being on a giant mega-hit sitcom that runs for a decade, but if you're someone who dedicated your life to acting, a big hit could be a genuine trap. If anyone knows that, Melissa Rauch does.
Melissa Rauch joined the cast of "The Big Bang Theory" in the third season, playing a character who fell in love with one of the series regulars, and she has become an indispensable part of the ensemble. I didn't pay close attention to the re-negotiations over salary, but I know the cast got some big giant raises. One of the things that affords you, if you're one of those actors on that show, is a chance to push some personal projects into the spotlight.
