These stars are the perfect Santa actors!

  • Ewan McGregor

  • The actor grew an extreme beard for his role in ‘Star Wars’. Usually, Ewan McGregor is, however, freshly shaven.

  • Jeff Bridges

  • This dude would just be a perfect Santa Claus. His brother Beau and his father Lloyd have already played the role.

  • Zach Galifianakis

  • The ‘Hangover’ star has both the figure and the perfect beard for the role of Santa Claus.

  • Joaquin Phoenix

  • For his movie ‘I’m still here’, Joaquin Phoenix put on a few pounds and grew a beard. Normally, he doesn’t really look like Santa though.

  • Ian McKellen

  • As Gandalf in ‘Lord of the Rings’, Ian McKellen is already used to working with elves.

  • Anthony Hopkins

  • The likeable Hollywood legend already has some experience with Christmas films. In the year 2000, he told us the story of Grinch, in the English original version.

  • Rick Rubin

  • The legendary producer has so far not taken responsibility for any Christmas hits. Yet, his similarities to Santa Claus cannot be missed.

  • Brad Pitt

  • While the Hollywood heartthrob likes to sport a shaggy beard, his resemblance to Santa Claus is otherwise somewhat limited.

  • Russel Crowe

  • The Oscar winner is well known for putting on an extra 80 pounds for a role to undergo an extreme transformation. However, Russel Crowe is better known for serious roles.

  • Bill Murray

  • With ‘Scrooged’, Bill Murray already played a role in a true Christmas classic. By now, he could well slip into the role of Santa Claus.
