Stepehn: Can you imagine Macaulay Culkin on the Big Bang Theory?
Macaulay Culkin has revealed that he was approached to be on The Big Bang Theory three times, but turned down the offer. “It was kind of like, the way the pitch was, ‘Alright, these two astrophysicist nerds and a pretty girl lives with them. Yoinks!’ That was the pitch,” he recalled on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast this week. “And I was like, ‘Yeah, I’m cool, thanks.’ And then they came back at me again, and I said, ‘No, no, no. Again, flattered, but no.’ Then they came back at me again, and even my manager was like twisting my arm.” Culkin went on to say that he doesn’t regret declining the role, despite the fact that the show’s heading into its 12th season. “I’d have hundreds of millions of dollars right now if I did that gig. At the same time, I’d be bashing my head against the wall,” he admitted.
