1. Macaulay Culkin as Kevin McCallister

Fun fact: Director Chris Columbus told Chicago magazine that despite knowing Home Alone writer and producer John Hughes "wanted Macaulay in the movie," Columbus nevertheless "ended up seeing 200 other kids" because he "owed it to [himself] as director to see other child actors."

2. Joe Pesci as Harry Lime

Fun fact: To avoid cursing on set with so many children around, Pesci would go on "mumbling rants" to let off steam.

3. Daniel Stern as Marv Merchants

Fun fact: Stern had to mime his iconic tarantula scream in order to avoid scaring the spider on his face.


4. Catherine O'Hara as Kate McCallister

Fun fact: O'Hara and Pesci play a married couple in Betsy's Wedding, which was also released in 1990.

5. John Heard as Peter McCallister

20th Century Fox, Good Deed Entertainment

Fun fact: Heard thought Home Alone would be a huge flop but took the role because he wanted to take his son to work with him and figured he could play with the other children on set, according to The Australian.

Sadly, Heard passed away in July 2017.

6. Devin Ratray as Buzz McCallister

Fun fact: The photo of Buzz's girlfriend — "Buzz, your girlfriend! Woof!" Kevin says — is actually of a boy made to look like a girl. Columbus thought criticizing a teen girl for her appearance would be inappropriate.

7. Gerry Bamman as Uncle Frank

Fun fact: Hughes wrote the role of Uncle Frank specifically for Kelsey Grammer.

8. Kieran Culkin as Fuller McCallister
