It’s not just his busy filming schedule that has prevented actor David Krumholtz from returning Clause 3 about Santa Claus: Exit clause with trilogy star Tim Allen.
In a new interview with The vulture, Krumholtz revealed that his favorite fan Santa Clause the character, the grumpy but lovable goblin Bernard, actually has a major role in season three of the Christmas comedy. After appearing in both the 1994 original and the 2002 sequel Clause 2 about Santa Claus As the head of Santa’s (Allen) toy workshop, he said “the story of my schedule is true, but somehow also untrue” when explaining his absence. him in the 2006 movie.
At the time, he was starring in the CBS crime drama Numbers, but Krumholtz insists that he’s willing to arrange shooting to suit both the movie and the show, so that his character doesn’t get “depreciated” in the script.
“Bernard was in the third movie. They sent me the script, I had a pretty meaningful role. We have worked out a schedule, which will make me very uncomfortable, but I will make it work. And everything is ready,” he explained. “But I can say that the character has depreciated a bit and I can’t have a good conscience to do that.”
While Krumholtz says he thinks “the first two are really special,” with Santa Claus is a “classic”, he has seen the third film and for him it is “not the same”. However, he still has fond feelings about his legacy Santa Clause movies he has acted in.
“It’s wild to be part of something that’s been around for so long, that’s been broadcast every year and has become a tradition in people’s homes,” he said. “I could never have imagined that I would have this conversation years later.”
The actor was 16 years old when Santa Clause – the film sees recently divorced and father Scott Calvin being recruited to replace the man in red after he accidentally scared Santa, sending him off the roof – premiered in theaters in November 1994. While some fans said that Santa Claus Krumholtz died after falling off the roof, saying he didn’t see it that way.
“I never saw him dying,” he said. “He fell off the roof, hurt himself, and magically disappeared. I don’t know, you call it dying? ”
Either way, the actor liked the movie because the story revolved around family and divorce. “I love divorce,” says Krumholtz. “The core of it is divorce. I think that really has a basis for the movie. So no matter what you see in it after that point, once the movie is grounded as a divorce comedy, having animated reindeer and Jewish elves running around is just as good. no problem. “
