It has been 30 years since Home Alone was released in theaters. In honor of the Christmas classic, it’s worthwhile to catch up with some of the principal cast members. Anyone who has seen this film knows that the credited cast–featuring a small boatload of children–was no easy undertaking, so consider this their honorable mention–especially the late, great, incomparable John Candy. Now…to some of the most memorable characters: Where are they now?
9. Ken Hudson Campbell
He was Smokin’ Santa. And he was the quintessential John Hughes random character that was integral to the sentiment of the film. Ken Hudson Campbell is a longtime veteran of the screen, and he has appeared in more films and TV than people would ever guess. He was once a principal on the three seasons of the Fox sitcom Herman’s Head in the early 1990s, and he has also enjoyed impressive roles in blockbusters like Armageddon. In recent years he’s had guest starring roles on Girl Meets World, Mike and Molly and several films. Ken has an incredibly recognizable face, but even more so, a distinct and unmistakable voice.
