Actor John Heard, ‘Home Alone’ Dad, Dies at 72

I’ll remember him best as a washed up detective who operated under the thumb of Tony Soprano, but most will know John Heard as Kevin’s father in Home Alone.  The 72 year old actor was reportedly recovering from back surgery when he was found dead in his California hotel room.  He also had roles in Big, Beaches, Awakenings, The Pelican Brief, and Sharknado.
