Question: Who is Randy?
Leo Crampton: He's a little kid, he's Ralphie's younger brother. He's very funny at times. He's picky about his food and he doesn't like to talk.

Q: What is your favorite part of this show?
L.C.: Me singing a heartwarming song before the Old Man comes home.

Q: Did you know the movie before you auditioned?
L.C.: Yes. We watch it every Christmas. It's a tradition. My favorite part is when he's on Santa's lap before he goes down the slide.

Q: Was there one Christmas gift you wanted as much as Ralphie wants the BB gun?
L.C.: Yeah, a ninth edition atlas. I love geography and history. I have a whole collection of atlases.
