"Without a doubt, one of the best actors of his generation."

Longtime character actor John Heard, best known for his role as Peter McCallister in the Home Alone films, died Friday at the age of 71.

Heard, who rose to prominence in the 1980s in such films as Cutter's Way and Big, went on to have a career that spanned over three decades and included nearly 200 credits in film and television shows such as The Sopranos (for which he earned a best guest actor in a drama Emmy nomination in 1999), Law & Order and The Pelican Brief.

Heard was remembered by many in Hollywood following the news of his death.
