Simon Baker has 30 million reasons to be happy this holiday season, has learned. The Mentalist star is in the process of finalizing a new $30 million deal with Warner Bros. Television for his services on his CBS series.

According to Deadline Hollywood, Baker's original five-year contract is being extended an additional season; he's in season three right now.  The new deal gives him a bigger piece of the profits as the episodes are sold into syndication and will give him a producer credit beginning in season five.

It's essentially a $10 million a year package for the next three seasons beginning in the Fall.

While not quite Charlie Sheen money -- he makes almost $30 million a season! -- the deal is presumably giving the 41-year-old Australian actor one very merry Christmas.
