David Krumholtz has unwrapped the first glimpse of his return in the role of Bernard The Elf as Bernard the Elf in The Santa Clauses. On Wednesday, the news broke that Krumholtz will reprise this role of the popular Head Elf for the first time since 2002’s The Santa Clause 2. This Disney+ Original series reunites Bernard and Scott Calvin (Tim Allen) and Scott Calvin, who will soon retire as Santa Claus, nearly 30 years after Allen’s toymaker was The brand new Santa during the 1994 film The Santa Clause.
Krumholtz shared the news via Instagram and posted short footage showing “when the Hair team pins my wig to the very first time.” Check it out below.
“Couldn’t be happier to complete another chapter in my “The Santa Clause” story this year in “THE SANTA CLAUSES’ on Disneyplus,” Krumholtz announced. “I think you’ll be awestruck!” I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of revisiting this character not to mention this particular moment in which the hair team pinched my wig for the very first time. Tune in!” Krumholtz didn’t appear in the 2006 film The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause which saw Curtis (Spencer Breslin) assume the sharp head that he wore as Head Elf. in an interview, with Vulture the actor stated that the old reports about an unplanned conflict with his own show Numb3rs were “true, however, they were not true.”
“Bernard was originally in the third film. They gave me the script and I was given an important part. We worked out the timetable that could be a nightmare for me however, I was determined to do my best,” Krumholtz explained. “And the schedule was set to start. However, I think the character was devalued somewhat and I could not with my good sense do it. The third movie I’ve tried watching. It’s not as good. I believe the first two albums are distinctive.”
The Santa Clauses is set sometime following The events from The Escape Clause and picks up with Scott Calvin on the brink of his 65th birthday. He realizes that he cannot be Santa forever as he begins to lose his Santa magic He sets out to find a new Santa as he prepares his family members for the new adventures in a world that lies that is south of the North Pole.
The cast members previously announced included Elizabeth Mitchell, reprising her role as Mrs Claus/Carol Calvin. Austin Kane as Cal Calvin as well as Elizabeth Allen Dick, Allen’s real-life daughter, plays Sandra Calvin.
“House star” Kal Penn will be playing Simon Choski — note the initials “S.C.” -which means “a dad who is a single, awe-inspiring game creator and product designer The trip to the North Pole makes a big impact on the rest of his existence.” Rupali Redd plays Grace Simon’s “angelic daughter who has a passion for Santa and everything Christmas.”
Jason Winer (Modern Family, Single Parents) will direct and executive produce the show in Disney’s 20th Television, reuniting Allen with his Last Man Standing creator Jack Burditt who will act as showrunner.
