Can it really only be 56 days (at the time of writing) until Christmas 2014? There is still so much to do and the weather is still far too nice for Christmas to be so close. Well, with Christmas getting ever nearer by the day, we have decided to make it part of our new Top 10 list, which will feature out favourite Christmas movie characters from over the decades, with plenty to choose from.
There have been hundreds of Christmas films over the years and there will no doubt be hundreds more in the future, with a whole host of impressive characters being brought to our screens along the way. We have already been given plenty in the past and here we take a look at the characters and the actors who have played them, starting at number 10 on the list, today.
Our Top 10 Christmas Movie Characters list will start with the performance of John Lithgow in the role of B.Z. in the movie Santa Claus The Movie, which has been a Christmas favourite to many over the years. While it is fair to say that the film is not exactly the most impressive Christmas movie around, it does have its redeeming features, one of which is John Lithgow as B.Z..
John Lithgow can take any project and make it great with his performances and that is exactly what he does here. B.Z. is an evil mastermind who is set on commercializing Christmas and getting rid of all the magic that it brings, and John plays the role to perfection. We dread to think how bad Santa Claus The Movie would have been without John Lithgow as B.Z., a great performance, of a great character, by a great actor.
Tomorrow we bring you number nine on the list!
