The exciting casting call features Macaulay, Kieran, Rory, Christian and Shane Culkin, who began their acting careers in childhood and are now in their 30s and 40s.

Kieran voices one of the main characters, Dr Plowp, and the Succession star’s real-life siblings voice Plowp’s siblings.

The list of Culkin siblings also includes sisters Quinn Culkin, Dakota Culkin, who died after being hit by a car in 2008, and her half-sister Jennifer Adamson, who died of an overdose in 2000.

Second Best Hospital in the Galaxy showrunner Cirocco Dunlap revealed on Tuesday that Keiran was the one who suggested the Culkin clan star together on the series.

“So Kieran came up with the role of Dr. Plowp and, in a crazy turn of events, the alien bird [character that he plays] I had four brothers [in the script] before he was elected,” Dunlap said The Hollywood Reporter.

“So I already had four brothers and when we cast Kieran we said, ‘You have four brothers!’ “That’s ridiculous, what a fate,” Dunlap continued.

“Kieran was the one who suggested it, he said, ‘We could get my brothers,’ and I said, ‘What? Yeah, yeah we should do it.’ And they are so wonderful, so funny, very empathetic and very sweet.”

However, it turns out that Natasha Lyonne, who plays Nurse Tup on the show, was the one who sealed the deal.

“Natasha’s magic, she made a call; I think she took Culkin’s Batphone and everyone answered,” joked Maya Rudolph, who is set to lend her voice to Dr. Vlam.

Natasha chimed in at that point: “I happen to be the Culkin Whisperer.”

“I worked with Mac on Party Monster, I want to say it was five years ago but it was probably 25. And then we became friends, we were instant friends and he was doing charades and the whole family was there. Kieran and I became friends along the way , I think maybe I made a movie with Rory.

“I love them, I really love those Culkins,” he added.
