Born in 1946 in Washington DC, John Heard started his acting career on the stage in the late 1970s. He got his first break in Tom Hank's "Big".

His co-star Jeff Bridges from the 1981 neo-noir classic Cutter's Way led the tributes for Heard on social media, declaring that he was a "wonderful actor". He also appeared in other Hollywood movies including "Snakes eyes" (1998), "White Chicks" (2004), and "Beaches" (1988).

Jurgen Klopp dismissed the initial bid of around £72m for the Brazilian by saying, "We are not a selling club". Barcelona is helpless in this situation, as the Los Culos have a buyout clause of €222 million for the player.


The veteran actor rose to fame after playing Peter McCallister - the father of mischievous Kevin, played by Macaulay Culkin - in the family comedy "Home Alone" and its sequel "Home Alone 2: Lost in NY". He also received an Emmy award for his guest role as Vin Makazian (a corrupt New Jersey detective) in the HBO television series The Sopranos.

But he is best known for playing the forgetful father of Macaulay Culkin's Peter McCallister in 1990's box office hit "Home Alone" - a role that he reprised in the 1992 sequel. "We just miscounted!" Heard's McCallister famously reassured his wife in the original "Home Alone" film.
