Kids: they grow up so fast! One minute they're getting their tongue stuck to a metal pole in A Christmas Story, and before you know it, it's 30 years later. Scott Schwartz, who played the ill-fated Flick, is now 45 years old. Like most people, he looks a whole lot different than he did three decades ago.

We last spotted Scott at Rhode Island Comic-Con in November, but he's been hitting the convention circuit hard! He's pictured here at the Chiller Thriller Theatre Expo on October 25, 2013, where he appeared in a mini-Christmas Story reunion with co-stars Ian Petrella (Randy Parker), Yano Anaya (Grover Dill), and Zack Ward (Scut Farkas).

So what's he up to now? Scott’s most major accolade is still that iconic yuletide film, but he's done some work since then! In the aughts he starred in a couple of low-budget projects, including 2004's Skin Walker, which also starred RuPaul and other frequent where-are-they-now featuree Jesse Camp.

In the '90s, Scott actually played bit, non-sexual parts — "hotel man," "EMT #2," etc. — in a whole grip of adult films. His biggest skin flick role to date was a starring gig, but not in the way you might think. In 1996, he played the titular Scotty in Scotty's X-Rated Adventure, but the entire plotline revolved around him not getting any — he just toured around the wild world of adult cinema as a spectator. It is, however, the only film where he did, eventually, get a sex scene. Don't let that ruin your childhood or anything!
