Macaulay Culkin says he had turned down 'The Big Bang Theory' thrice

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

has revealed that he was offered popular sitcom "The Theory" but he turned it down.

In an interview with The Joe Rogan Experience, the 37-year-old actor, who once ruled the late '80s and early '90's thanks to his classic "Home Alone" films, said the producers chased him with the project but he was not interested in it.

"They pursued me for 'The 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. They were like, 'We'll get some real physicists to do the math,' but I was like, 'Yeah, I'm cool, thanks," said.

"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 was like twisting my arm," he added.

Kulkin said though he would have been richer, he has no regrets about not doing the project, currently in season 11.

"I'd have hundreds of millions of dollars now if I did that gig. At the same time, I'd be bashing my head against the wall," said.
