On the way up to stardom most stars inevitably cross paths with the holiday comedy. Few, however, get to play the big man himself, Santa Claus, but that's exactly the chimney Kevin Hart may be about to go down.
THR reports Hart is in talks to play Santa in Walt Disney's Christmas comedy, Dashing Through the Snow, which will see him reunited with super-producer Will Packer. Based on an original idea hatched by Scott Rosenberg (Con Air) and penned by Rob Burnett, the film “tells of a New York City detective who is a workaholic and has a strained relationship with his son. The only thing that may be able to repair the father-son relationship is the one true Santa Claus who has to make the man believe in Christmas magic.”
Meh, sounds like a generic holiday movie only with Hart involved we'll get less jokes about Santa's gut and more about his height.
