Macaulay Carson Culkin (born August 26, 1980) is an American actor and musician. He became famous as a child actor for his role as Kevin McCallister in the family comedy Home Alone (1990) and its sequel Home Alone 2: Lost in New York (1992). In Home Alone 4, he was replaced by Mike Weinberg.

The original concept of Home Alone 3 involved Kevin returning as a teenager. However, this idea was rejected because Culkin dropped out of acting three years earlier as he thought that he was outgrowing "childish" roles. Instead Home Alone 3 stars Alex D. Linz as Alex Pruitt.

He is also known for his roles in Uncle Buck (1989), My Girl (1991), The Good Son (1993), the NYC Ballet's adaptation of George Balanchine's The Nutcracker (1993), The Pagemaster (1994), Richie Rich (1994), Party Monster (2003), and the music video for Michael Jackson's "Black or White". At the height of his fame, he was regarded as the most successful child actor since Shirley Temple. Culkin ranked at number two on VH1's list of the "100 Greatest Kid-Stars" and E!'s list of the "50 Greatest Child Stars."
