Twenty-five years after Macaulay Culkin captured a couple of bumbling burglars, and the world’s affection as Hollywood’s biggest child star, life seems to have foreclosed on Mac and the rest of the cast. Here’s a peek through the broken windows at the “Home Alone” cast today!
Roberts Blossom (Old Man Marley): A familiar face of the 1970s and ’80s, Roberts appeared in “The Great Gatsby” with Robert Redford and “Escape From Alcatraz” with Clint Eastwood. He went on to play other quirky, cranky old men in films, but couldn’t escape the career curse. He died in 2011.
John Heard (The Dad): A rising star in ’80s flicks like “Big,” things got smaller for John after “Home Alone.” You can now find him in such esteemed titles as “Sharknado” and “The Lizzie Borden Chronicles.” “I went from being a young leading man to being just kind of a hack actor,” he said.
Daniel Stern (Bumbling burglar Marv): Another early ’80s prodigy, Daniel stole the show from Mickey Rourke in “Diner” and later became the voice of “The Wonder Years.” More recently, he’s been limited to small roles in such gleaming film triumphs as 2012’s “A Christmas Story 2.”
Macaulay Culkin (Kevin McCallister): Poor Mac suffered through a legal split with his parents, a short-lived teen marriage to actress Rachel Miner and a virtually nonexistent movie career since 1998. Recently, he had a harrowing heroin addiction and a shocking gay make-out session — both exposed by The National ENQUIRER!
Joe Pesci (Bumbling burglar Harry): A 1990 Oscar winner for “Goodfellas,” Joe remained a box-office killer throughout the decade in “My Cousin Vinny,” “JFK” and the “Lethal Weapon” flicks. His career has sputtered along since then, and so has his love life — he’s been divorced THREE TIMES!
Devin Ratray (Older brother Buzz): Kevin’s spider-loving bro has had some guest roles, but the chubby chap hasn’t had much luck in the acting biz. He popped up in “Law & Order” and the ill-fated 1993 movie version of “Dennis the Menace,” but that’s about it.
