Years before they both appeared in blockbuster comedy Home Alone, bumbling burglar Daniel Stern and forgetful patriarch John Heard became friends on the New York theater scene.

Daniel Stern (@RealDanielStern) July 22, 2017

In this passionate essay, Stern recalls dropping out of school and coming to New York, where he was quickly “adopted” by Heard and his pal Bruce McGill:

I met him on my very first day in New York City. I had dropped out of high school and moved there to be an actor… By the end of the first day, I was stoned and drunk for the very first time »

John Heard obituary

23 July 2017 6:25 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Us stage and screen actor best known for Cutter’s Way, Home Alone and Deceived

John Heard, who has died aged 71, was an engaging, intelligent character actor in American film, television and theatre from the mid-1970s onwards. In Big (1988), his slyly funny turn as a resentful executive provided a welcome antidote to the sweetness of a comedy about a boy transformed overnight into a man.

In the smash hit Home Alone (1990), he mistakenly leaves behind his son while taking the rest of his family on holiday, contriving to repeat the oversight in Home Alone 2: Lost in New York (1992). He was Goldie Hawn’s duplicitous husband, who fakes his own death, in the thriller Deceived (1991) and was nominated for an Emmy in 1999 for the first season of the HBO drama The Sopranos, in which he played a self-loathing detective in the pocket of the mafia.
