The Santa Clauses: Cast and Production
So far it is known that Tim Allen (“Listen Who’s Banging”, “Last Man Standing”) will return to his role as Scott Calvin aka Santa Claus. Lost star Elizabeth Mitchell will also reprise her role as Carol. She is Santa’s wife and has been with Scott since Part 2 of the film series.
Kal Penn (” How I Met Your Mother “) is portrayed as Simon Choksi, an aspiring game inventor, product developer, and single father. His dream of becoming the next Jeff Bezos is falling apart. But all that changes after a visit to the North Pole.
All fans of the original films have something to look forward to, because another important character will also be making a comeback in the series: Elf Bernard, boss of all the elves, is once again rushing to support Santa. Bernard is played as in the cult films “Santa Clause – A beautiful gift” and “Santa Clause 2 – An even more beautiful gift!” by David Krumholtz.
At first it seemed that Krumholtz will not return to the series adaptation, since he already missed the third part of the “Santa” film series. But on Instagram, Krumholtz shared the good news of his return with the fans in a short video.
Production began in Los Angeles in March. Jason Winer (” New Girl “) has been signed by Disney+ as director and executive producer, as reported by US magazine Deadline . Jack Burditt (“30 Rock”, ” Modern Family “, “Frasier”, ” Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt “) is executive producer and showrunner. Kevin Hench (” Last Man Standing “), Richard Baker and Rick Messina will also serve as executive producers.
