Home Alone’s ‘Marv’ star Daniel Stern is unrecognisable with white beard 32 years after playing burglar | The Sun

HOME Alone's dopey burglar Marv had one of the toughest gigs in the film – getting slammed in the face with an iron.

But it made Daniel Stern, one half of the Wet Bandits terrorising Kevin McCallister in the hit movies, a huge star.

The actor, who was in his early 30s when Home Alone was made, is now 65.

He's often seen with the same sort of beard he had in his burglar-portraying days – though it's now grey and white.

He's clearly still close with his co-stars, even recording a birthday song for Macaulay Culkin one year.

The actor makes infrequent social media appearances, mostly to help promote his son Henry, who is a politician in California.

In one video he was seen suggesting slogans to the 40-year-old, who is the first Millennial in the State Senate.

Daniel said: "I've got something catchy to really get the voters – what about this one? Don't stay Home Alone – get out there and vote for Henry Stern.

"Or this one: 'Vote for Henry Stern you filthy animals.' Again that taps into the Home Alone thing."

Henry replied: "People may get the wrong idea but OK I see where you're going. Is mum home, by the way?"
