i love the santa clause movies with tim allen but i think there were movies that actors played a good santa.tim allen was good but him playing the role of santa clause didnt make the movie meaning thats not what made me like the movie so much.just the movvie in general his acting(while not being santa)...i personally think the santa clause on a christmas story with raphie played a good role.

Had to pick Ed Asner, I liked his take on Santa. Had a bit of spunk and a sense of humor.
