Pictures: Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams' pay disparity drama and more ICYMI news

The actors' guild is investigating Michelle Williams, Mark Wahlberg wage gap for 'All the Money in the World': <p>The actors' union is trying to get to the bottom of the pay disparity <a href=Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams ended up with for reshoots on "All the Money in the World." USA Tday and the New York Times confirmed this week that Michelle made only $80 a day for the extra 10 days needed to reshoot scenes in which Christopher Plummer was replacing Kevin Spacey in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations lobbed at the former "House of Cards" star. Her costar, Mark, got the same per diem -- plus $1.5 million. Now, SAG-AFRTA wants to know why. SAG-AFTRA (Screen Actors Guild‐American Federation of Television and Radio Artists) is investigating whether the film broke Guild rules paying the lead actress less than one percent what the lead actor was paid for the extra work, according to Deadline (via Vulture). Director Ridley Scott has said he and Michelle, along with others on the movie, agreed to reshoot the scenes "for nothing," hence the per diem. Deadline reports both Michelle and Mark failed to mention the possibility of reshoots in their contracts. Both are represented by WME, however, and Michelle was reportedly left in the dark about the pay gap, although her agent may have simply not negotiated for the same money Mark's did.
