WHITE BEARD. CHECK… THAT’S ABOUT IT.
Requisites aside, there are many movie characters out there that just might be Santa hiding in another cinematic universe. Perhaps he loses some weight and blends in as a writer? Or a Wizard? Or the proprietor of a theme park with real dinosaurs? You be the judge.
The Lord of the Rings
Remember, I’m not saying that Gandalf is Santa Claus… I’m just saying he’s magical and hangs out with elves…
Obi Wan Kenobi
I’ll admit, of the movie characters on this list, Obi Wan Kenobi is least likely to be Santa. But if he was, can you imagine 9 reindeer with lightsabre noses tied to a speeder?
Joseph ‘Blue’ Palasky
It’s slightly humorous imagining a retired Santa who loses weight, joins a fraternity and wrestles half naked women in a pool of K-Y Jelly…
The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou
I could see Santa as an explorer.
A Santa that becomes a writer & changes lives.
Would Santa hide in suburbia shoveling salt and looking grumpy? He would because underneath it all, he’s got a good heart. He helps save a kid who screamed directly in his face.
This guy looks the part more than any other AND he makes television shows for kids.
John Hammond is a billionaire who helps create real live dinosaurs on an island. Is it too far fetched to think he could come up with a model train or two as well?
Bonus marks have to be given to actors who have actually played Santa in the past too.
