John Candy as 'Gus Polinski'

Late actor John Candy played Gus Polinski (the "Polka King of the Midwest"), a musician who offers Kate McCallister a ride to Chicago after his flight is canceled.

After finding massive success in the 1980s, Candy's career took a turn for the worse. He unexpectedly died in his sleep from a heart attack at age 43. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo: Twentieth Century Fox)
