With this much wealth to their name, they will never have to work in an office again.

The official resolution of the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes on September 27 led to immediate rumors of new projects. Various sources suggest that one of these is a reboot of the mockumentary sitcom The Office, to be developed by Greg Daniels, who adapted the original British version for US audiences in 2005.

For eight years, The Office entertained us with its cozy working environment, goofy and occasionally surreal humor, and endless awkward situations, almost always instigated by the World's Best Boss, Michael Scott, portrayed by the legendary Steve Carell. Now, ten years since the cult sitcom ended, will Daniels manage to reunite the cast that once became a family, or will he cast new actors to play brand new characters? Only time will tell, but for now, let's check in with the cast of 2005's The Office and see how well they're doing financially.

12. Creed Bratton (Creed Bratton), David Denman (Roy Anderson) — $3 million

11. Phyllis Smith (Phyllis Vance), Leslie David Baker (Stanley Hudson), Kate Flannery (Meredith Palmer), Melora Hardin (Jan Levinson), David Koechner (Todd Packer) — $4 million

10. Oscar Nunez (Oscar Martinez) — $5 million

9. Craig Robinson (Darryl Philbin) — $6 million

8. Ellie Kemper (Erin Hannon) — $9 million

7. B.J. Novak (Ryan Howard), Brian Baumgartner (Kevin Malone) — $10 million

6. Angela Kinsey (Angela Martin) — $12 million

5. Rainn Wilson (Dwight Schrute), Paul Lieberstein (Toby Flenderson) — $14 million

4. Jenna Fischer (Pam Beesly Halpert) — $16 million

3. Ed Helms (Andy Bernard), Rashida Jones (Karen Filippelli) — $25 million

2. Mindy Kaling (Kelly Kapoor) — $35 million

1. Steve Carell (Michael Scott), John Krasinski (Jim Halpert) — $80 million

It has to be said, but for many of the actors on our list, it hasn't been just The Office that made them this rich. Many of them have since taken part in numerous other projects. However, with the possible exception of Steve Carell, who was already relatively famous when he was cast as Michael Scott, The Office was the gateway project for the rest of the cast, getting them noticed and talked about in the industry.

Shortly after The Office became a hit, its actors started getting invites to other big projects, like 2007's License to Wed, in which The Office's alumni Angela Kinsey, Brian Baumgartner, Mindy Kaling, and John Krasinski appeared alongside Robin Williams. For the four Office actors, it was their first major feature film.

And money-wise, The Office itself was a most lucrative deal for all of its key stars. Most cast members started out on a modest $14,000 to $20,000 per episode, but towards the later seasons, the show’s biggest stars were making an average of $100,000 per episode. For a show with 24 to 26 episodes per season, that translates into a cool 2.5 million a year.
