    Britney Spears and the rest of those stunt castings paid off—literally—for the cast of How I Met Your Mother.

    Neil Patrick Harris, Alyson Hannigan, Jason Segel, Josh Radnor and Cobie Smulders have inked raises that will significantly bump up their salaries—in some cases, two or three times over—placing each actor's per-episode take in the $90,000-$120,000 range.

    Per the Hollywood Reporter, the new deals will also increase the fivesome's small-screen longevity, adding an additional year to their original seven-year contracts. The lucrative new deals follow months of negotiations with producer 20th Century Fox and coincide with a ratings uptick for the comedy.

    Meantime, NPH has a big weekend ahead, hosting Saturday Night Live and then returning to L.A., where he's up for a Golden Globe for HIMYM.
