Peter McCallister is the father to Kevin, Buzz, Megan, Linnie and Jeff McCallister. He is very protective of his kids. In the novelization for the film Home Alone, he is a successful businessman. His brothers are Frank and Rob McCallister. Peter is the husband of Kate McCallister. He is a supporting protagonist in the first two films and the tritagonist in Home Alone 4: Taking Back the House.
Peter is portrayed by John Heard in Home Alone and Home Alone 2: Lost In New York, and Jason Beghe in Home Alone 4: Taking Back the House.
In Home Alone, Peter is wondering how he's supposed to shave in France. In France, he tries to calls their neighbors, including the Murphys, asking about Kevin and his whereabouts, and then tells his brother, Frank that he couldn't find anyone; they had all gone shopping, and that nobody was home for the holidays. Later, after the family gets home on Christmas Day, after hearing that Kevin had gone shopping and got some milk, eggs and fabric softener, Peter remarks, "No kidding. What a funny guy. What else did you do while we were away?" Kevin replies that he just hung around. Peter then finds Harry's gold tooth and wonders what it is.
Home Alone 2: Lost In New YorkEdit
In Home Alone 2, Peter looks for the batteries for a camcorder, finds them and then resets the clock (by accident). At the Christmas Pageant, when Buzz pulls a trick on Kevin using the candlesticks, Peter, along with Kate, Leslie, the conductor and the piano lady, is not laughing. Then, after the bill from Kevin's original stay at the Plaza Hotel comes, Buzz reads it, and then after saying "Merry Christmas indeed", calls out "Oh, Dad!"
Peter comes in, and then two seconds later, shouts out "Kevin! You spent $967 on room service?!" Hannah Lien.
Home Alone 4: Taking Back the HouseEdit
In this film, he is the tritagonist instead of Kate being the tritagonist, unlike the last two films. Peter and Kate have divorced, and he has a new girlfriend named Natalie. In one scene, after Peter decides to go back and check on Kevin after they get to the airport, he tells her that something's up; he can sense it. He then says that maybe you have to be a parent, she replies that she finds that to be unfair, and that he knows how much she cares about kids. Peter replies, "How much do you care about my kid?"
Later, after the bad guys have been arrested, Natalie asks Peter what Kevin did this time, and Peter replies that Kevin saved the day, so she should be thanking him and apologizing to him for not believing him. Then, after he tells Natalie that he mistook infatuation and excitement for love, and that the "smart house" and everything in it is her world and not his, he decides to get back together with Kate.
