Christina Hendricks Joins Billy Bob in ‘Bad Santa 2’

Bad Santa 2

Broad Green Pictures and Miramax have announced today that Christina Hendricks will star as the love interest opposite Billy Bob Thornton in Bad Santa 2, the sequel to the 2003 dark comedy.

The “Mad Men” star has been cast in the film as an Ivy-league educated, upper class woman that runs a charity being targeted by mall Santa Willie T. Stokes and his mom. Let’s just hope she’s as entertaining and fun as Graham’s character from the original was as well.

Tony Cox and Brett Kelly from the original film will also return in the sequel, with Oscar, Golden Globe and Emmy winner Kathy Bates playing the tough-as-nails mom of Thornton’s character.

Mark Waters is directing from a screenplay by Johnny Rosenthal, Doug Ellin and Shauna Cross. The sequel to the highly-beloved 2003 raunchy Santa comedy is set to hit theatres on November 23rd, 2016. Oh, sh*t, Santa f*cking someone in the ass, again.
