What Home Alone cast looks like now

EARLIER this week it was announced that Disney is making a Home Alone reboot for its upcoming streaming service.

Disney hasn't announced if the reboot will be a movie or a TV show or if any of the original cast members will be involved.

All they've said so far is that the hit 1990 movie will be "reimagined" for "a new generation", a statement that Macaulay Culkin poked fun at with a hilarious photo.

 

To celebrate the reboot, we thought we'd take a look at what the original stars from Home Alone and Home Alone 2 (which are both available to stream on Foxtel) look like now.

Macaulay Culkin

The actor was reportedly paid $100,000 for the first Home Alone movie but got a massive pay rise for the sequel with a $4.5 million pay cheque.

He's now all grown up at 38.

Joe Pesci

The actor, now 76, wasn't the first choice to play the villain Harry - Robert De Niro actually turned down the role before it was offered to Pesci.

Daniel Stern

Who can forget that scene in Home Alone where the tarantula scrawls across Stern's face.

The actor told The Hollywood Reporter he was nervous about the creature and asked the handlers if they could take the spider's stinger out, but they said no because it would die.

"And I said, Yeah, but if you don't take it out, I'll die'. But everyone seemed cool with it, so I just had them put the friggin' tarantula on my face," he said.

Devin Ratray

The actor, who played Buzz, told news.com.au about his strangest interaction with a Home Alone fan.

"I was walking down the street once and I saw this young, attractive woman wearing a T-shirt that said, 'My friend slept with Buzz from Home Alone'. I didn't stop her to talk to her about it," he said.
