Ask Stacy – WHT Tom Hanks’ Pal from ‘Big’?

DEAR STACY: We just watched that wonderful movie, “Big.” The boy who played Billy, the friend of Tom Hanks’ character, did a great job, with a couple of takes that were just priceless. Whatever became of him? – Melinda M., Cleveland, OH
DEAR MELINDA: Jared Rushton grew up, of course. Prolific as a juvenile actor (“Honey, I Shrunk the Kids,” “Overboard,” etc.), he’s now 35 and plays guitar and does vocals in an alternative rock band called Withdrawal, which he joined in 2004. He kept active as an actor through the 1990s, logging lots of episodic TV guestings on shows from “ER” to “Cracker.”
