When an actor gets an opportunity to star in one of television’s biggest series, you would think, they would jump at the opportunity. One actor, who really hasn’t done a lot except for some “indie” films, turned down the opportunity!
Macaulay Culkin tells The Joe Rogan Experience Podcast that he turned down a role on The Big Bang Theory. “They pursued me for ‘The Big Bang Theory’. 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. 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.”
