Macaulay Culkin, The Tonight Show


Macaulay Culkin has kind of a Malfoy look to him, no?

The "Fantastic Beasts" films are all set long before the timeline of Draco Malfoy and Harry Potter, but maybe Culkin could play Grandpa Malfoy.

Just spit-balling to help a guy out, since he clearly wants to be in the next "Fantastic Beasts" movie. Culkin said as much in a tweet to "Harry Potter" author and "Fantastic Beasts" screenwriter J.K. Rowling.

Rowling has been catching some heat from fans for making Nagini a human (and Asian) woman in "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald." Culkin started his pitch by backing Rowling up on her decisions. He also reached out to Dan Fogler, who plays Jacob Kowalski, as a job reference:

Haha. Culkin may be too late for the third movie, though. During a fan Q&A in late May/June, Rowling revealed she was already working on the script for "Fantastic Beasts 3." There are five films planned for the "Fantastic Beasts" series. So if he missed No. 3, maybe No. 4 is available?

Culkin, now age 38, hasn't been up to anything significant film-wise in a while. The "Home Alone" alum is listed as starring in Seth Green's film "Changeland," which is currently marked as in post-production. But he should be free to join "Fantastic Beasts 3," among other things.

By the way, the photo at top is from a "Tonight Show" interview he gave earlier this year, talking about "Home Alone" conspiracy theories, and all of his death hoaxes:

The second "Fantastic Beasts" movies hits theaters November 16.
