In 1994 a true holiday classic was released: The Santa Clause. The tale of normal, every day man Scott Calvin accidentally killing Santa Claus and being bound to take his spot as the new Claus after wearing the big guys suit.

The movie had it all: Santa, elves, and enough Christmas cheer to perk up even the most gloomy of humbugs, but what about the stars of the now 23-year-old film, what are they up to now?

Take a look and find out:

Tim Allen a.k.a. Santa Claus
