FOX issues statement on ‘The Simpsons’ future as cast is asked to take pay cut

Recently it was revealed that FOX was asking the voice actors behind The Simpsons to take a 45% pay cut, and now the network is issuing a statement on the matter.

Via Entertainment Weekly:

“23 seasons in, The Simpsons is as creatively vibrant as ever and beloved by millions around the world. We believe this brilliant series can and should continue, but we cannot produce future seasons under its current financial model. We are hopeful that we can reach an agreement with the voice cast that allows The Simpsons to go on entertaining audiences with original episodes for many years to come.”

Do you think The Simpsons cast should accept the cuts, or should they hold strong and make FOX pay up?
