Gerry Bamman started working in film and television in the mid-1980s, landing small parts in comedies such as "Cocktail" and "The Secret of my Success." His indisputable breakout role came in 1990 when Bamman played the part of Uncle Frank in the wildly popular "Home Alone." His character in the film is especially memorable for his indifference verging on antipathy towards the eight-year-old protagonist, famously played by Macaulay Culkin. After a prolific run in TV movies and series from 1991 to 1992, including significant parts in the show "The Chase" and the movie "The 10 Million Dollar Getaway," Bamman reprised his role as Uncle Frank in the 1992 sequel "Home Alone 2: Lost in New York." Combined, the first two "Home Alone" films grossed over $800 million worldwide. Following his final turn as Kevin's grumpy uncle, Bamman continued to pick up a mix of bit parts and substantial supporting roles in films like "The Bodyguard," "Lorenzo's Oil," and "Great Expectations." Impressive in his consistency, Bamman continued to work steadily through the 2000s, acting in a mix of Hollywood films as well as in TV movies and series. Some of the most notable additions to his filmography during this decade include 2001's "Superstar," 2003's "Runaway Jury," and 2004's "Around the Bend." Throughout his career, Bamman has also appeared occasionally on the long-running TV series "Law & Order," in which he plays the recurring role of Stan Gillum.
