Sean Astin stars in Hallmark's "Santa Switch"

It's a holiday takeover when Santa agrees to share the reins with Sean Astin and Ethan Erickson in "Santa Switch," a Hallmark Channel Original Movie.


Ethan Erickson is a struggling dad who gets a new start when a strange encounter magically replaces his mall Santa gig with the real thing in World Premiere of Santa Switch, premiering Saturday, December 7 at 8pm ET/PT. 

Starring alongside Erickson, Academy Award Nominee Sean Astin (The Lord of the Rings) plays Kris Kringle's uptight assistant Eddie who is determined to keep Christmas on schedule. Anne Dudek, Annie Thurman and Griffin Cleveland also star. 

As the Christmas season approaches, Dan Ryebeck (Erickson) is facing unemployment, and struggling to pay for the gifts he thinks will impress his two kids, Sally (Thurman) and Joe (Cleveland). Always chasing a new business idea, Dan hasn't had time for family, including his wife Linda (Dudek), who is finally fed up and filing divorce papers. Threatened by Linda's handsome and successful young boss, Trevor, Dan knows he must make this Christmas the best one yet to win his family back. But after auditioning for a mall Santa job and quickly losing his cool, Dan is frustrated and broke, blaming the holidays for his troubles. Little does he know his luck is about to turn around when the real Kris Kringle (Donovan Scott) pays him a visit from the North Pole. Deciding to take a vacation and leave Dan in charge, Kris sends his hard-working elf assistant Eddie (Astin) to guide Dan as the new Santa Claus, hoping he'll learn a lesson in Christmas spirit. With the sudden power to impress Linda and the kids by making every wild Christmas wish come true, Dan soon gets carried away. As the fate of the whole world's Christmas rests in his hands, can Dan focus on what his family really needs without flubbing his greatest gig yet?
