Santa Clause

When Santa comes to mind, you may envision him stationed in the North Pole or atop a sleigh, but Santa Clause also spends a lot of time in front of the camera. Actors ranging from '90s teen heartthrob Jonathan Taylor Thomas to Oscar nominee Paul Giamatti have donned Santa's iconic red suit. 

Bad Santa

Billy Bob Thornton, Bad Santa 比利·鲍伯·松顿 《圣诞坏公公》

There's nothing jolly about Thornton's turn as a department store Santa Claus, who plots to rob his place of employment on Christmas Eve.


Ed Asner, Elf 阿斯纳 《圣诞精灵》

The traditional Santa has tons of little helpers, but Asner's Santa also has one very big one in the form of Buddy the elf, a full grown man who doesn't realize he's human.

Fred Claus

Paul Giamatti, Fred Claus 保罗·吉亚玛提 《圣诞老兄》

All families deal with a little familial tension during the holidays, and the Claus clan is no exception in this film that stars Giamatti as a Santa who has to contend with a trouble-making older brother (Vince Vaughn).

I‘ll Be Home For Christmas

Jonathan Taylor Thomas, I'll Be Home For Christmas 乔纳森·泰勒·托马斯 《一路闯关过圣诞》

Teen heartthrob JTT spends most of this movie dressed as Saint Nick after a group of bullies abandon him in the desert dressed as Santa.

A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas

Patton Oswalt, A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas 帕顿·奥斯瓦尔特 《猪头逛大街》

Traditionally, Santa likes it when kids leave him milk and cookies, but Oswalt's drug-dealing Santa would probably prefer another kind of treat, as he spends his onscreen cameo getting high with Kumar.

Miracle on 34th Street

Edmund Gwenn, Miracle on 34th Street 艾德蒙·格文 《34街的奇迹》

When you love someone deeply enough, anything is possible. And the old man can actually be  Santa Claus.


Ryan Phillippe, 54 瑞安·菲利普 《今夜星光诱惑》 

Santa may be known for having a belly like a bowl full of Jelly, but Phillippe defies tradition, rocking a six-pack in his shirtless Santa suit instead.

The Santa Clause 2

Tim Allen, The Santa Clause 2 蒂姆·艾伦 《圣诞老人2》

Tim Allen plays a single Santa in this sequel, where he has to find a Mrs. Claus or risk losing his post as Father Christmas.


Jake Gyllenhaal, Jarhead 杰克·吉伦哈尔 《平头日记》

Though Marine Anthony Swofford (Gyllenhaal) is stationed in blisteringly hot Saudi Arabia, that doesn't stop him from donning a Santa hat to get into the Christmas spirit.

Reindeer Games

Ben Affleck, Reindeer Games 本·阿弗莱克 《驯鹿游戏》

When ex-con Rudy Duncan (Ben Affleck) is blackmailed into participating in a heist, he ends up having to dress up as Santa on Christmas Eve in an attempt to rob a casino.
