John Heard, who played the dad in the first two "Home Alone" movies, died Friday. He was 72.

The film and TV actor was arguably best known for his role as Kevin McCallister's father in "Home Alone" and "Home Alone 2: Lost in New York." According to Deadline, the cause of death is still under investigation by the Santa Clara County coroner's office.

The Washington, D.C. native appeared in such films as "After Hours" and "Big." In 1999, Heard earned an Emmy nomination for his guest starring role as a corrupt police officer on "The Sopranos."

His more recent credits include an April 2017 guest spot on WGN's "Outsiders," as well as roles on "Elementary" and "Modern Family."
