Following the awesome live stage version of A Christmas Story on Fox, we thought it would be fun to see how sweet Ralphie was doing these days. Even before Ralphie Parker won America's heart with those big blue eyes and "never-give-up-hope" attitude, Peter Billingsley was known as "Messy Marvin," a character created by Hershey to advertise their chocolate syrup (I lived with that nickname til I moved out of my parent's house. Let's keep that between us, k?).

Marvin may have come first, but was 2nd to Billingsley's most famous character, "Ralphie Parker." Unlike many other child actors, who have a tendency to tail spin out of control, he continued having success in the film industry. Alongside good friends, Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau, Peter Billingsley went on to produce well-known movies like ‘Dinner for Five,’ ‘Iron Man,’ ‘Four Christmases’ as well as directing (Couples Retreat).
These days, you'll find him as executive producer of ‘A Christmas Story The Musical.’ Who says you can't go home?
