      John Heard

      John Heard

      Highest Rated: 100% The Trip to Bountiful (1985)

      Lowest Rated: Not Available

      Birthday: Mar 7, 1945

      Birthplace: Washington, D.C., USA

      An Obie-winning theater star of the 1970s, John Heard made the leap to motion pictures during that decade with leading roles in such overlooked cult favorites as "Between the Lines" (1977), "Chilly Scenes of Winter" (1979) and "Cutter's Way" (1981) before transitioning to character roles in Hollywood, most notably as Macaulay Culkin's dad in "Home Alone" (1990). Heard excelled as men in turmoil, whether romantic, moral or criminal, and brought gravity and complexity to even minor roles in films like "Awakenings" (1992) and "In the Line of Fire" (1993). Recurring roles on television provided him the time to flesh out his roles, including an Emmy-nominated turn as a crooked cop on "The Sopranos" (HBO, 1999-2007). His versatility made him one of the business's most recognizable and dependable actors, and his death on July 21, 2017 at the age of 72 brought a much-lauded career to a close.
