I would like to take this computer out in the yard and give it some shotgun advice. To continue, said actor needs to get a piece of the gross receipts, NOT the net. Major films made by Hollywood make little or no money at all. Everything they do up until the first ticket is sold is an expense against gross income. When they start making money, then they bankrupt the company and roll the money over into a new venture. To give you an example, the Terminator series with Arnold Swarznegger has made billions in income, and yet has made no money at all. They have the best accountants on the planet working for them....

PHB's statement in the last panel reminds me of the movie business. Writers get the shaft as the 'studio heads' get the bonuses. They steal everything they possibly can and give away a share of the 'profits' which are massaged put of existence by the company accountants.

@mikea105: A perfect plan except for one detail: You need to finance a squad of state troopers (training, salaries, uniforms, cruisers, gas, weapons, skinhead-style haircuts) to make sure the citizenry buy the stickers, being forced at gunpoint if necessary, to pay that and other tribute.
