For almost the entirety of his career, Paul James played backup or side roles where his character was there for a couple of scenes and never to be seen again. In that sense, he is a struggling actor, but Paul also played main roles in a few movies and TV shows, which paid good money for the actor to live off.
Greek was an ABC show, and it was a critical and ratings success, so surely he was paid handsomely for his appearance in the show. We are thinking somewhere in the range of $15,000 to $20,000 per episode. Now, the actor appears in Soundtrack Netflix show, and the streaming giant is known for being loose with their purse.
