You better watch out: BAD SANTA 2 is coming to town. Willie and Marcus are back for the holidays with plans of a bigger heist. Billy Bob Thornton reprises his role from the 2003 hit black comedy, alongside co-star Tony Cox as Willie’s adorable sidekick elf Marcus (and the brunt of most of Santa’s jokes). Plus, joining the cast for the sequel are Christina Hendricks (obviously the female lead/love interest just as Lauren Graham was in the first film) and Kathy Bates as Willie’s rambunctious mother. Plus the return of Thurman Merman!
BAD SANTA 2 returns Academy Award®-winner Billy Bob Thornton to the screen as America’s favorite anti-hero, Willie T. Soke. Fueled by cheap whiskey, greed and hatred, Willie teams up once again with his angry little sidekick, Marcus (Tony Cox), to knock off a Chicago charity on Christmas Eve. Along for the ride is ‘the kid’ – chubby and cheery Thurman Merman (Brett Kelly), a 250-pound ray of sunshine who brings out Willie’s sliver of humanity.
Mommy issues arise when the pair are joined by Academy Award®, Golden Globe and Emmy-winner Kathy Bates, as Willie’s horror story of a mother, Sunny Soke. A super butch super bitch, Sunny raises the bar for the gang’s ambitions, while somehow lowering the standards of criminal behavior. Willie is further burdened by lusting after the curvaceous and prim Diane, played by Emmy Award-nominee Christina Hendricks, the charity director with a heart of gold and libido of steel.
Bad Santa 2 arrives in theaters November 23rd.
