Macaulay Culkin Turned Down 'Big Bang Theory,' Throws Shade at CBS Hit Sitcom

Macaulay Culkin revealed on Joe Rogan‘s podcast this week that he turned down a role on the The Big Bang Theory, and threw some shade at CBS’ hit show.

“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,” Macaulay recalled.

“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 continued.

Pauley Perrette Responds to CBS' Statement About Her 'NCIS' On-Set Allegations

Pauley Perrette opened up this past weekend about the “multiple physical assaults” she claimed to be the victim of on the set of NCIS.

The actress, who just left the long-running CBS series after fifteen seasons, took to Twitter to address speculation over her departure from the show.

“I’ve been supporting ant-bullying programs forever. But now I KNOW because it was ME! If it’s school or work, that you’re required to go to? It’s horrifying. I left. Multiple Physical Assaults. I REALLY get it now. Stay safe. Nothing is worth your safety. Tell someone,” she said.

CBS spoke out on Tuesday (May 15) and said, “Pauley Perrette had a terrific run on NCIS and we are all going to miss her. Over a year ago, Pauley came to us with a workplace concern. We took the matter seriously and worked with her to find a resolution. We are committed to a safe work environment on all our shows.”
