Susan Sarandon - Susan Sarandon Snubs Leading Tv Roles Over Contract Worries

Susan Sarandon has turned down a string of TV roles because she's scared of signing up for a longrunning project.
The Thelma & Louise star has worked mainly on the big screen since shooting to fame in the 1970s, garnering five Academy Award nominations along the way.
Sarandon is asked to play leading roles on the small screen every year, but snubs the offers due to restrictive contracts - and admits she doesn't even own a TV.
She tells the New York Daily News, "Every season, I'm approached to do a series, but I'm a little phobic about that much commitment. I guess I'm saving it for my really old age. To be honest, I don't even have a TV."
Sarandon has made guest appearances in several small screen hits, including Friends, 30 Rock and The Big C.
