It’s been 13 years since Billy Bob Thornton‘s Willie T. Stokes put on a Santa suit, but he’ll be back in the Claus for the much-anticipated Bad Santa 2 in just under a month! And Thornton won’t be the only Bad Santa star making a comeback for this long overdue sequel.
Today, we’ve got four new photos from Bad Santa 2 to premiere, including this pic of Thronton, Christina Hendricks, and Tony Cox. Now, if you’ve seen the first Bad Santa, you’ll recall that Cox’s Marcus did try to kill Willie. But what’s a little attempted murder among friends? As far as we know, Marcus only murdered one person in that movie. Considering that he’s not in jail, it may be safe to assume that the government is ignorant about his role in the demise of Bernie Mac’s Gin Slagel.
As for Hendricks, she’ll be playing Diane, the director in charge of a charitable organization. Presumably, Diane will get close to Willie and she’ll also have a large role in this story. Considering that Hendricks appears in three of our exclusive pics, that seems like a pretty safe assumption.
Next up is a picture of Brett Kelly and Kathy Bates. Kelly played Thurman Merman, the kid who befriended Willie in the original Bad Santa. Bates is reportedly playing Sunny Soke, Willie’s mom. And she may have a fouler mouth than he does!
You can see the remaining two pics in our gallery below. Bad Santa 2 will open on November 23.
