Kieran Culkin came very close to rejecting his first post-Succession role, the actor recently revealed.
Speaking to Interview magazine the actor divulged he is set to star in Jesse Eisenberg’s sophomore film A Real Pain, which tried to dodge.
Culkin cited travelling with his family as a complication, justifying his hesitation to take on the project. However, despite dillydallying for a while he ended up accepting the role because the semi-biographical script was too impressive to decline.
“This is going to sound terrible, but I’ve tried to get out of it because it’s going to make my life miserable. But I don’t want to not do it because it’s such a beautiful script,” Kieran Culkin said.
“I was finding every reason to not do it. I was like, ‘I’ll watch his first film [“When You Finish Saving the World”], maybe it’s going to be terrible.’ I watched it, and I was like, ‘Sh*t. It’s really good.'”
A Real Pain follows two cousins, played by Culkin and Eisenberg, who make a journey to Poland following their grandmother’s demise and end up signing up for a Holocaust tour.
