Picks and Pans Review: Santa's John Goodman

ON PLAYING THE MAN IN RED The temperature was a little uncomfortable, seeing as we shot in Louisiana in July. I called it the Santa diet. I looked like a tomato with a beard in some scenes.

ON ACTING THE PART AT HOME I did it one time about 20 years ago for my little cousins, and it scared the hell out of them. As soon as I came downstairs, everyone started crying. I just handed out some candy and beat it out of there.

ON FINDING OUT THERE WAS NO SANTA I was about 5 or 6. I was more shattered later on when I found out my younger sister knew. We kept the pretense up until then, so when she found out, it was all over.
