TV's Sexy Santas
With Thanksgiving in our rearview (although CVS has been selling ornaments since Halloween), everyone is turning their attention to Christmas -- including your favorite TV shows.
From Glee to Hoarders, your DVR will be filled with various Very Special Christmas episodes, and I've gotten a sneak peek at two characters that will be stepping into Santa Suits on their respective sho-ho-ho-ws.
On December 7, Happy Endings celebrates the holidays by gifting us with -- what Adam Pally calls -- "the first Jewish Santa in the history of the world" in their seasonal offering, titled Grinches Be Crazy. In the episode, Max is once again desperate for cash so he agrees to dress up as Santa for Penny's charity event.
The following week, Schmidt will bring to life the first ever male Sexy Santa in New Girl's December 13 episode, aptly titled Christmas. "It's an aggressive look for sure," Max Greenfield told me at the GQ Men of the Year Awards. "Deb Maguire, who does our wardrobe, put together a concoction that is ... well, there's just not a lot to it. But the little that there is is kinda perfect," he laughs.
And since we've just opened the first page on our Advent Calendar, expect many more small screen Santas to fly your way in the weeks to come!
New Girl airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on Fox while Happy Endings airs Wednesdays at 9:30 p.m. on ABC.
