Home Alone’s MoCo Connection

by MCS Staff

Home Alone is considered one of the all-time greats when it comes to Christmas movies. If you needed more reason to enjoy the series of movies, we’re going to let you know about the MoCo connection for two of its stars– Daniel Stern and the late John Heard.

Daniel Stern, who played Marv– one half of the “Sticky Bandits” along with Joe Pesci, grew up in Bethesda and attended Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School. Though he dropped out of school to move to New York to pursue his acting career, Stern starred in several theater productions at B-CC. John Heard played the role of Peter McCallister, the father of protagonist Kevin McCallister. Heard grew up in nearby DC and came back to attend Catholic University after going to High School in Massachusetts. As an adult, his parents lived in Chevy Chase and Heard would spend a lot of time in the area. Sadly, Heard passed away back in 2017.
