Here's what's being talked about in pop culture:

• "Big Bang Theory" stars Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco have reached new contract deals reportedly worth around $1 million each per episode, after a standoff that briefly halted production on the hit CBS sitcom. Co-stars Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar are expected to make their deals soon. [Entertainment Weekly]

• Keke Palmer ("Akeelah and the Bee," "True Jackson, VP") is taking over the title role in the Broadway production of Rogers & Hammerstein's "Cinderella" — the first African-American actress to wear the glass slipper on Broadway. [AP]
