Macaulay Culkin's no stranger to the machinations of Hollywood and while he may have been off the boil in terms of his star-power since the late '90s, he's clearly ready to get himself back into the game.

Across a series of tweets from his account, Macaulay Culkin joked with JK Rowling that he wanted to be written into the next 'Fantastic Beasts' sequel, adding that he has experience with magic following his role in 'The Pagemaster'. To be fair, 'The Pagemaster' was a cracking and underrated childhood classic, so it's worth mentioning.

Culkin weighed into the debate concerning Nagini, a character from the original series that's since been revealed to be actually an Asian woman who transforms into a giant snake that was eventually a pet of Voldemort. If you're into Harry Potter, it's a big deal and clearly, Culkin wanted to use it as his way in with Rowling.

It didn't just stop with Rowling either, as Culkin even leaned on his real-life friendship with Dan Fogler, who plays Jacob Kowalski in the series, offering Fogler a nice back-rub if he put in a good word for him. Offering a back-rub in exchange for a role seems... kinda hinky in today's climate, Macaulay Culkin.

Culkin hasn't really starred in any kind of major studio production since 1994's 'Richie Rich', instead opting for more indie fare such as 2003's 'Party Monster' and most recently 'Adam Green's Aladdin'. Culkin did turn up in 'Kings', a lavish television reimagining of the story of David and Goliath that also starred MCU alum Sebastian Stan and Lovejoy himself, Ian McShane.

Whether or not Culkin bags himself a role remains to be seen, but it seems clear that he wants back into the movie business. The question is, do they want him back?
