Quentin Tarantino’s latest movie, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, featured a long list of famous actors like Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio, and it could have featured one more big name. Home Alone star Macaulay Culkin revealed in an interview with Esquire that he auditioned for a role.
Unfortunately for Culkin, however, he bungled the audition. It was so bad that he wouldn’t have cast himself if he was the casting director. “It was a disaster. I wouldn’t have hired me,” he said. “I’m terrible at auditioning anyway, and this was my first audition in like eight years.”
Culkin did not share which role he was going for or any other details about his audition.
Brad Pitt won the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his performance as Cliff Booth in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, marking Pitt’s second Academy Award win and his first in an acting role.
The movie also features Leonardo DiCaprio, Margot Robbie, Timothy Olyphant, Dakota Fanning, Austin Butler, Al Pacino, and Luke Perry in his final movie role before his death.
The Once Upon A Time In Hollywood movie may expand to a new medium. Quentin Tarantino told Deadline that he plans to direct a spin-off TV show focused on Leonardo DiCaprio’s Rick Dalton character from the fictional TV show Bounty Law.
