10 Actors We’d Love to See Play Santa on the Big Screen

Santa is one of the most endearing characters an actor can play. No matter what the angle — good, bad, comedic, serious, or something in between — audiences swoon for a heartfelt depiction of Ol’ Saint Nick.

Maybe during a future holiday season (when movie theaters are back at full capacity), we’ll get our Christmas casting wish!
