Home Alone 2 Sets Got Surprise Visits From Popstar Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson came to the sets on a Saturday morning.

The Home Alone movies have a massive fanbase in holiday movies. Home Alone came out in 1990 and Home Alone 2 came out two years after the first movie. Both the movies saw Macaulay Culkin outwit thieves from his wit and genius. On the 30th anniversary of the movie set director, Daniel Clancy talked to Metro UK about pop star Michael Jackson and how he was a regular visitor on the sets of Home Alone 2.

Michael Jackson and Macaulay Culkin

Home Alone 2 was filmed in New York at McCallister’s now-famous house in suburban Chicago in 1992. Many of us don’t know that Home Alone star Macaulay Culkin and Michael Jackson were friends. Macaulay Culkin rose to fame overnight after the release of Home Alone and as a 10-year-old he was thrown into the world of glitz and glamour.

Michael Jackson often visited the sets unannounced which caught the movie crew off guard. “The only celebrity that we had was Michael Jackson came and visited the set, but that was in the second one,” Home Alone set decorator Daniel Clancy told the publication. “No one knew he was coming, this limo pulled up and Michael Jackson pulled out with a mask on. That was freaky. Macaulay Culkin got in the limo and they went to dinner, and they came back.”

Macaulay Culkin didn’t keep Jackson to himself. He also introduced him to other stars on the set. Devin Ratray who played Buzz, Culkin’s best friend in the movie met Jackson through him only. He described the incident as, “He [Michael] came to the house on a Saturday morning of all times,”

“We were mad enough that we had to rehearse running outside of the house into vans at 7.30 on a Saturday morning in snowy, freezing Chicago, Illinois, and when we got there, Mac immediately peeled through the crowd of us getting out of one van. He grabbed me and said, ‘Devin, I want you to meet somebody.’ Of course, that person was Michael Jackson. He pulled me to one of the airport vans where we had to get in, the prop vans. Sitting in there out of the cold was Michael Jackson”.

“And this was, again, 7.30 in the morning, in freezing Winnetka in February. You don’t wake up that morning and run into Michael Jackson.” the actor added further.
