According to Variety, Craig (53) will receive a whopping $100 million from the streaming giant for two sequels to the hit film Knives Out.

In the first installment, the British actor played a private detective brought in to solve the murder of a wealthy crime writer (Christopher Plummer, †91) at his birthday party.

Behind the Bond actor, and with only half the salary, follows Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson (49).
