Father Christmas will get by with a little help from his friends in November’s The Santa Clause 2. ”We have a group of mythical figures, including the Easter Bunny, who help Santa Claus make his big decisions,” star Tim Allen tells Entertainment Weekly. The holiday homies making up the film’s ”Council of Legendary Figures” include Jay Thomas as the righteous rabbit, Kevin Pollak as a tiny Cupid, Peter Boyle as Father Time, and Talk Soup hottie Aisha Tyler as Mother Nature. Allen says working with the boisterous cameo crew was a chore: ”We were laughing so much, it took us three days to get through it.” — William Keck
