Tom Bueller is the father of the Bueller family. He is played by Lyman Ward.
It's not clear what exactly he does for a living, but he does have a nice office in Chicago and was on a business lunch during the movie. He drives a red Audi and is shown to be somewhat absentminded. He obviously cares very much about Ferris.
- Lyman Ward and Cindy Pickett, the actors of Ferris' parents, ended up getting married in real life after they met while filming Ferris Bueller's Day Off.
- However, they ended up getting divorced in 1992.
