A Christmas Story's Ralphie Starred in Elf And We Had No Idea


Starring in one Christmas classic is enough, but apparently it wasn't enough for Peter Billingsley 'cause he went on to star in ANOTHER classic movie! 

Billingsley was only 12 years old when he played the adorable little Ralphie in the holiday classic - A Christmas Story. A short 20 years later, he got right back into the holiday spirit and played Ming Ming in Will Ferrell's Elf.


After seeing the now viral tweet, I did some IMDB digging where I learned that HE WASN'T EVEN CREDITED IN ELF! Excuse me, but Ming Ming was a big part of that movie! He deserves some credit. 

Turns out Billingsley has starred in more than just 2 Christmas films. In Four Christmases he took yet another small part by playing a ticket agent. While it may have been a small acting role, he was actually the Executive Producer on the film!
