    I liked him best as the creepy husband in Deceived...one of Goldie Hawn's better films.

    My favorite John Heard movie was "Cat People". Because he got to make out with Nastassja Kinski. He was also really good in a small role as Tom Hanks' rival at the toy company in "Big".

    Anyone see "My Fellow Americans", a political spoof starring Jack Lemmon and James Garner as former presidents on the run? Heard played a Quayle-like VP, with some pretty good lines.

    Last thing I saw him in was for TV in Modern Family: the father of Phil's real estate nemisis who always just happens to be around when Jay is in an embarrassing situation.

    Just saw Deceived. Love when Goldie is forced to get the necklace back from the bratty kid with the self-righteous parents.

    Another really good character actor. He's been in so many movies, he has 6 movies coming out according to IMDb. RIP.

    He always gave me the creeps. Apparently his 20 y/o son died in december and his ex-wife blasted him in the obit. I think there was domestic violence & stalking in his past. He was also married to Margot Kidder for 6 days.

    That movie was great! I also liked him as Callie Duquesne's alcoholic dad on "CSI:Miami".

    I didn't know that about his son. I heard about the wife-beating and stalking though.

    I'd forgotten that Heard was in this really good sleeper kind of comedy that had a lot recognizable actors in it - "Heaven Help Us". Heard was the new, progressive Brother who actually related to his students. The movie REALLY resonated with me because I had just graduated a couple years earlier from a Xaverian Brothers school - with a mix of really nice, and sometimes terrifying, Brothers. This movie also had Mary Stuart Masterson, Patrick Dempsey, Andrew McCarthy, Kevin Dillon, Donald Sutherland, Wallace Shawn (giving an EPIC pre-dance speech).

    Home Alone actor John Heard found dead in hotel six months after his estranged son Max died in his bed at the age of 22 after suffering 'deep grief of not having a father participating in his life'

    • John Heard died on Friday, just six months after his son Max died
    • Max Heard, 22, died in December 2016 and was estranged from his father
    • John was found dead by a maid in a hotel in California, sources say
    • Heard also starred in Big with Tom Hanks, Gladiator and The Pelican Brief


    Home Alone actor John Heard died six months after his estranged son passed away in his sleep.
    Max Heard died in his bed in December 2016, half a year before the death of his father in a hotel room on Friday.
    The 22-year-old 'died peacefully in his sleep', according to an obituary written by his mother Sharon, and 'was in deep grief of not having a father participating in his life.'


    Max Heard (pictured), who was reportedly estranged from his father, died on December 6, 2016

    John and Sharon Heard also shared a daughter, Annika.
    John and Melissa Leo, who were in a previous relationship together, has a son and named him John Matthew Heard.
    The 72-year-old was found dead by a maid in a hotel in California on Friday, according to family sources.
    The star played the father of Macaulay Culkin’s character Kevin in the hit 1990s films.

    Heard also starred in Big with Tom Hanks, Gladiator and The Pelican Brief, while TV work included roles in Battlestar Galactica and The Sopranos

    His death is not being treated as suspicious.

    Did not know that. I just read that Margot was married to three men, all just a little over or a little under one year.

    Very memorable performance in Cutter's Way. John was a Vietnam vet, very tough movie. What a character actor. If anyone remembers Lisa Eichhorn, (Yanks with Richard Gere) she was terrific at playing drunk.

It's tragic the young man passed and I'm not trying to be disrespectful, but I will wait patiently while the family gets their story straight then comes back to the media with something more believable.
