Culkin prays at Foster’s ‘Altar’

Younger sibling's shooting star

NEW YORK — Kieran Culkin, emerging from the shadow of his “Home Alone” brother Macaulay, has been cast as a lead alongside Jenna Malone and Jodie Foster in “The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys,” a black comedy produced by Foster’s Egg Prods. He’s also been set to star in “Go Fish,” a pilot for Touchstone and NBC that is a high school comedy created by “American Pie” scribe Adam Herz.

In the film, Culkin, most recently seen in a supporting role in the Lasse Hallstrom-directed “The Cider House Rules,” will play one of a pair of Catholic schoolboys who plot revenge on a bitter nun who has been terrorizing them. The nun is being played by Foster. Filming begins May 1.

The actor, who just finished a run in the Off Broadway play “The Moment When,” is repped by CAA and Gerson-Saines Management.
