Christmas is right around the corner, which means it will soon be time to avoid TBS like the plague. That is, unless you want to get sucked into watching 24 hours of A Christmas Story. The modern Christmas classic is filled with memorable scenes and characters, but whatever became of the cast? Normally the answer to a question like that is death or porno. However, in this instance, that’s only partially true.

Read on to find out where the Parkers and the maladjusted neighborhood children be at now.

Ralphie

Peter Billingsley is best known for his on-camera work as Ralphie, the protagonist of A Christmas Story. However, he’s had an even more successful career behind the camera. After befriending Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau, he’s gone on to produce films like Made, The Break-Up, Iron Man, and Four Christmases. He also directed Couple’s Retreat. Somebody had to, I guess.

The Old Man

Darren McGavin steals the show as Ralphie’s stern, lamp-loving father. Sadly, he’s not with us anymore but he’s left behind an impressive resume with roles on The X-Files, some older crap, and most impressively, as Billy Madison’s dad. It takes a fine actor to stand there next to a guy in a giant penguin costume and pretend to not notice the giant penguin.

Keira Knightley and Steve Carell‘s upcoming “pre-apocalypse comedy” Seeking a Friend for the End of the World has assembled quite a cast. Take a look at this list of names: Connie Britton, Patton Oswalt, Rob Huebel, Melanie Lynskey, T.J. Miller and Melinda Dillon. I guess given the world ending on Saturday, all of these people have the apocalypse on the brain. In case you’ve been to busy stockpiling food for Armageddon, here’s what the movie is about:

“[T]he film … explores what people do when humanity’s last days are at hand and whether Carell’s character can find love at the worst possible time.”

I dunno if it’s really the WORST possible time to find love. If the world’s about to end, no pressure to meet her parents. Anyway, no word yet on who these people are going to play — maybe half of them will be demons and the other half angels? Probably not, though. (Variety)
