Macaulay Culkin's father apparently has cost the child star a role in an off-Broadway play.

Kit Culkin, who was once a child actor himself, kept demanding changes in the play, "Sam I Am," and the cast, according to The New York Times."He would say, `Either make the rewrites or get yourself someone else to play the child,' " said playwright Keith Reddin. "And I said, `Fine.' It got to the point where the play wasn't worth doing because so many compromises had to be made."
