I always love watching A Christmas Story every year. Whatever became of the actor who played the little boy who wanted the Red Ryder BB gun?

Now 34, Peter Billingsley, who played the bespectacled Ralphie in the 1983 movie A Christmas Story, is a successful Hollywood producer with several projects to his credit, including the TV series Dinner for Five and the upcoming movie The Breakup, starring Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Anniston. But if you just can't get enough of Ralphie, you can watch the 24-hour Christmas Story marathon on TBS, which runs Christmas Eve into Christmas morning.
