John Heard, ‘Home Alone’ Dad, Dies at 71
Character actor JOHN HEARD died on Friday. You’d recognize him from a lot of TV shows and movies, but he’s best-known for playing Macaulay Culkin’s dad Peter McCallister in the first two “Home Alone” movies .
It’s a little unclear how he died. His body was found in a hotel room by a maid. Apparently, he was staying there while he was recovering from minor back surgery.
His other roles included “Gladiator,” “Awakenings,” “Radio Flyer,” and “The Pelican Brief,” in which he played an FBI agent.
He also was Tom Hanks’ nemesis at the toy company in “Big” and was nominated for an Emmy in 1999 for guest starring on “The Sopranos” .
Daniel Stern aka Marv from the Wet Bandits (one of the Burglars in Home Alone) posted a nice tribute on Twitter.
