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.

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.

Mr. Lundy
Mrs. Doubtfire

This guy looks the part more than any other AND he makes television shows for kids.

John Hammond
Jurassic Park

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?
