'Home Alone' Reboot Casts Archie Yates, Ellie Kemper, & Rob Delaney

Disney Plus’ upcoming Home Alone reboot has found some of its stars!

Jojo Rabbit‘s Archie Yates, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt‘s Ellie Kemper, and Catastrophe‘s Rob Delaney have all been cast in the film, Variety reports.

Dan Mazer will direct.

Archie Yates will reportedly not be playing the iconic role of Kevin McCallister, but instead a new character “in a similar premise to the original franchise.” Additionally, Ellie Kemper and Rob Delaney will not be playing Kevin’s parents, but rather other people in the film, possibly a couple not related to Kevin.

In the original 1990 flick, Kevin (Macaulay Culkin) is accidentally left home alone while his family visits Paris over the holidays. Kevin then has to guard his house from two burglars (Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern).

The 39-year-old Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt actress told Kimmel that adjusting to life with her newborn, Matthew, 1 month, and her firstborn James, 3, has been quite the experience.

“Everyone warned me, of course,” Ellie expressed. “Like, ‘You need to shower the older one with, like, attention and love. You don’t want them to feel left out.’”

Ellie said her attempts to make her eldest feel seen are perhaps a bit too strong: “I am going overboard,” she joked. “I am, like, so worried about James feeling left out that I find myself, like, insulting the baby to, like, win James’ approval. I’m like, ‘Matthew’s a baby. He’s dumb.’ It’s so mean to the baby! The baby’s, like, seven weeks old, he’s like, ‘Ah!’ I’m like, ‘You know, James, Matthew can’t do what you can do because he’s an idiot.’ So mean!”

Ellie also talked about growing up in St. Louis, what it’s like living in NY, her new book “My Squirrel Days,” and being in Jimmy and Norman Lear‘s Live in Front of a Studio Audience: All in the Family.
