  • Macaulay Culkin and Brenda Song

Macaulay Culkin says he and his girlfriend Brenda Song are going to be having kids one of these days!

CBS pursued Culkin for a lead spot on the sitcom, which just wrapped its 11th season, he said on an episode of the "Joe Rogan Experience" podcast released Thursday. 'And I said, "Noooo". 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.

"Then they came back at me again, and I said, 'No, no, no; again, flattered―but no, '" Culkin said. Then they came back at me again, and even my manager was like twisting my arm'.

But he added: 'At the same time, I'd be bashing my head against the wall'.

But after a run of disappointing returns in The Nutcracker, getting even With Dad, The Pagemaster and Richie Rich, Culkin largely turned away from the big screen in 1994, appearing only in a handful of quirky projects since then, including his pizza-themed comedy rock band the Pizza Underground.

The Home Alone star didn't reveal which character he was pitched to play, but said he doesn't regret saying no to the series, which has seen stars Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar all make $1 million per episode since Season 8.
