In 1990, the comedy Home Alone became the third highest-grossing film of all time and the highest-grossing comedy ever. One of the best things about the film is the perfect casting, so who would star if there was a Home Alone remake? Which current actors would be the perfect fit for a Home Alone reboot?

John Hughes wrote the script and Christopher Columbus directed Home Alone. Macaulay Culkin had appeared in bit parts in a few other films, but his depiction as the smarter-than-thieves Kevin McCallister made him one of the most popular and financially successful child actors of all time. The against-type casting of Joe Pesci as one of the bumbling house burglars also proved to be an excellent production decision.

Which actors could play Kevin McAllister and Harry Lime if the seminal comedy was going to be remade today? Check out the modern-day Home Alone fantasy casting call. Then, be sure to vote up your favorite actors.
