The acting world is kind of like those who work as freelancers and contract workers. Once a movie is in the works, the actors and actresses are chosen. This can be done through auditions, but actors at this level of popularity are typically runners up already. Having these actors in mind for whatever reason, a contract is then decided upon.

There are certain movies that will just not be the same without certain actors. The creators and companies definitely factor this in, because having certain actors will make the movie more profitable and bring fans out. On the other end of this, some of these actors are worth more than the budget. it is a lot of guesswork, and sometimes movies flop. No matter what the company decides, the contract is in place so the actor gets paid what was negotiated. There are times where the actor will get more if the movie does better, and less if it makes less. This is based off of percentage.

A big part of the acting world is the promise of residuals. This is where an actor will get a certain amount as long as a movie or show continues to make money off of it. This can happen for all sorts of reasons, but it is a big reason why even landing one big break or big gig can keep an actor afloat for years to come. This is similar to how royalties work for authors. This all depends on what was negotiated in the contract.
