Devin D. Ratray (born January 11, 1977) is an American actor, singer and songwriter. He is most famous for his role as Buzz McCallister in Home Alone and Home Alone 2: Lost in New York.
Ratray was born in New York City, the son of Ann Willis and Peter Ratray, both actors. He started acting at the age of nine years in the movie Where are the Children? (1986). He starred as a youth in various other programmes and movies until his acting pinnacle in 1990 as Buzz McCallister, the mean older brother of Macaulay Culkin's character Kevin in Home Alone. This role was continued in 1992 in Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, where the McCallister family journeys from Miami back to New York City to find their troublesome youngest member.
Ratray landed minor roles in Little Monsters (as Ronnie Coleman, the bully), Dennis the Menace (as Mickey, the boyfriend of one of Dennis's babysitters) and an episode as Martin in The Enforcers (1996). Another film role was The Prince and Me as the computer-obsessed room-mate of "Eddy," the royal Prince of Denmark. He was a regular improv actor on MTV's Damage Control, notably as a director of an erotic film called Crazy Motor Hos, in which he was dressed as a naval captain. Ratray appeared in the September 29, 2006 episode of Law & Order, "Avatar", as the mentally ill murderer Richard Elam. He later portrayed an antagonist in an episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. He was a lisping doctor in the movie Slippery Slope (2006). He performed as Jimmy Link in Serial (2007). Ratray appeared in the 2009 film Surrogates as Bobby Saunders. Variety said "Ratray gets good mileage out of his role as a computer whiz too proud of his corpulent geekiness to consider a more glamorous substitute." In 2009, he was also a guest star on the fifth season of Supernatural in the episode "The Real Ghost Busters".
