Stars Who Played Santa

Ed Asner in Elf

In this film, Asner plays a very traditional Santa, who mistakenly brought a baby back to the North Pole one Christmas. Santa and the rest of the elves raise Buddy (Will Ferrell) to be one of them. But when he grows too big to fit in, he sets out for the Big Apple. Then, on Christmas night Santa turns to Buddy for help and the two save Christmas.
