Stephen Colbert Recruits Bryan Cranston, Laura Linney, and More for the Wildest Christmas Movie of the Season

Last night Stephen Colbert recruited some big celebrities to recreate a Christmas story from the minds of children.

In the latest installment of “Kids Pitch,” Colbert and a group of kids brainstormed ideas for a movie involving Santa Claus fighting his greatest enemy yet: his evil twin brother Atnas.

And then the show actually made a trailer for Santa Fight, starring Bryan Cranston as Santa and evil Santa, Laura Linney as Mrs. Claus, Nick Kroll as the Snowman, and Rachel Dratch and John Oliver as elves with axes. (It makes sense in context. Sort of.)

It’s a top-notch cast and this isn’t the first time Cranston has played a more unconventional Santa

You can watch the full segment above, via CBS.
