Gaten Matarazzo who plays Dustin on the Netflix smash hit “Stranger Things” isn’t even 21 yet, but he just hit the JACK POT! According to Gaten’s original contract, he was scheduled to get a slight salary increase for the upcoming season, much like he did for season 2. He was due a bump of slightly less than $1,000 per episode — from $16,800 to $17,640 per episode in season 3. But of course, at 15, that wasn’t enough, so all of their contracts were renegotiated & the kdis will now make between $200- $250K per episode for season 3! Do that math… That’s a 1,200% raise. I need their agent!
