Meet 'Santa Clause' Cast More Than 20 Years after the Movie's Premiere
It has been over 25 years since “The Santa Clause” made it to the big screen, yet people still enjoy watching the Christmas movie during the Holidays.
“The Santa Clause” film premiered on November 11, 1994, and spread the Christmas vibes with a spectacular story of a regular guy who had to take on the role of Santa after making him fall off the roof.
Being a huge success, the movie spawned two sequels, “The Santa Clause 2” and “The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause” in 2002 and 2006, respectively.
However, the two succeeding films weren’t nearly as successful as the first, which reached number one at the box office.
To this day, many watch the iconic trilogy in the spirit of Christmas and enjoy laughter with the spectacular cast. Here’s a look at how the actors and actresses of the film have been.
Tim Allen’s career was over the top in the ‘90s, aside from starring as Santa Claus/Scott in the film. The actor famously played Buzz Lightyear in “Toy Story” and Tim Taylor in “Home Improvement.”

However, it was his role in “The Santa Clause” that got him two MTV Movie Awards nominations for Best Breakthrough Performance and Best Comedic Performance.
He also starred in “Wild Hogs,” “The Shaggy Dog,” “Crazy on the Outside,” and “Galaxy Quest,” before starring in the sitcom “Last Man Standing.”

Before playing Laura in “The Santa Clause,” Wendy Crewson already had a long list of credited productions, including “Hard Copy,” “Tanner ‘88,” “Studio 5-B.”
Her other films include “Death Wish,” “What Lies Beneath,” “Bicentennial Man,” and “Air Force One,” while her television appearances are “24,” “Saving Hope,” “Slasher,” When Hope Calls,” and “Revenge.”

Crewson has since been in the industry, acting mostly in television shows. Some of her recent ones from 2006 onwards are “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” “Saving Hope,” “The Bridge,” and “ReGenesis.”
Eric Lloyd played Scott’s son Charlie in the film, who like his other co-stars continued his acting career and appeared in movies like “Deconstructing Harry,” “Batman & Robin,” and “Dunston Checks In.”
He also appeared in the television show “Jesse” before focusing on his band RadioMason and founding a production house called LP Studios.
After playing Santa’s elf Bernard, David Krumholtz started landing roles in different productions. Among which are most remembered are “10 Things I Hate About You,” “Monty,” and “Chicago Sons.”

Krumholtz’s acting career has flourished through the years with recent significant roles in “All Hail King Julien,” “The Deuce,” and “Living Biblically.”
Judge Reinhold played Charlie’s step-father, Dr. Neil Miller, in the movie. However, he was already an established actor with films like “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” and the “Beverly Hills Cop” franchise prior to the film.

Peter Boyle first appeared as Scott’s boss in “The Santa Clause” and rook on the role of Father Time in the succeeding parts.
