He might get Paid more.
Because i'm a moron. I can't leave things alone.
Chandler Parsons gets paid 900,000 a year until 2014. Let's say He takes the hit and reneges on his contract. He has to terminate his contract, pay a fee et cetera et cetera.
Let's see some of the recent young handsome men and their salaries.
Bradley Cooper got 5 million dollars for the movie the Hangover.
Chris Hemsworth got 3 million for Thor.
Liam Hemsworth got 1.5 million for the Hunger Games.
I'm just saying, the oppurtunity cost is ENORMOUS for Parsons. He should have met Lin earlier so that Lin could explain it.
Before you say he can't be a movie star...do you know how enormously popular Tom Cruise is? Asians LOVE sharp chins. He could have a whole career just by being that token white guy in every Asian tv series/film.
Corner the market, if you will.
