Who is Your Favorite Live Action Portrayal of Santa Claus?

Our mission at SAW is to foster conversations about this thing we all love (or love to hate): film/TV. Many of our features are designed with you in mind. Your opinions, to be more to the point. You have ’em. We want to hear ’em.

Question of the Day (QOTD) is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a film/TV-related question that we put to you, the reader. The comments section below is like the feedback box at work; except, in this example, we actually read what you write and care about what you have to say.

There have been many live action portrayals of Santa Claus over the decades, but we all have a favorite portrayal of Santa that stands out more than the rest.

So, the question I ask today is: who is your favorite live action portrayal of Santa Claus?

I’m going to go with Kurt Russell from The Christmas Chronicles. It’s a rather newer film so his incarnation may not be as cemented in the holiday season as much as Tim Allen in The Santa Clause trilogy but he did a good job as a rather seasoned, rough around the edges, a take no guff kind of guy while also maintaining the joyous charm that Old Saint Nick is known to incorporate.

So what about you, screenagers? who is your favorite live action portrayal of Santa Claus?

I’ll see you in the trenches.
