Ian Petrella is best known for playing little brother Randy in the Christmas classic "A Christmas Story." Guess what he looks like now!

Since there are no comments on this, I feel it's my duty to say "A Christmas Story" is absolutely a timeless CLASSIC, and there probably wasn't anyone who could've played Randy better. I'm sure there are quite a few people out there (including myself)who can say they watch this movie at LEAST a handful of times every year.

Ha, ha! God I love that movie! It's one of our family's favorites! He grew up to be a good looking man. I agree with the 1st poster, this movie is a classic! Merry Christmas all!

I hate to do this but there is a debate going around about who is better Drake or Eminem. A lot of people are talking about it so i want to know from the fans themselves. this is all because the eminem drake diss track that was dropped -> .... now everybody is buzzing. So TMZ, who is better. Drake or Eminem? lets let the fans decide.

We took a ride this past summer to Cleveland to see "The Christmas Story" House and Randy was at the house for the summer. I got a picture of him in front of the christmas tree. I don't think that alot of people on the tour were aware of the fact that it was actually Randy.

I had an email exchange with Ian a couple of years back around this time of year. He seems to enjoy that people remember him so fondly every year and is one very, very nice guy.
