Macaulay Culkin: I turned down a Big Bang Theory role three times
“They pursued me for The Big Bang Theory,” the actor revealed on Joe Rogan's podcast The Joe Rogan Experience. “And I said no. 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. 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.”
