I told you last week about the sequel that is being made to the classic Christmas movie, A Christmas Story for HBO Max. Well now we have more details about who will be in the movie. Most importantly, the star will be Peter Billingsley, who of course played Ralphie in the original film But now four more cast members from "A Christmas Story" are coming back for the HBO Max sequel . . . and they were all kids the first time around. They are:
Ian Petrella . . . who played Ralphie's little brother Randy.
Scott Schwartz . . . who played Ralphie's friend Flick, a.k.a. the kid who got his tongue stuck to the pole.
R.D. Robb . . . who played Ralphie's friend Schwartz. And no, that's not a typo. The kid whose REAL NAME is Schwartz didn't play the character named Schwartz.
Zack Ward . . . who played the bully, Scut Farkus.
We still don't know who else will be in the movie, but I'm already looking forward to it since the original kids will be back. Usually I'm not interested in sequels to classic movies, but this might be fun. What do you think?
