[Movies] Billy Bob Thornton Says That Bad Santa Spawned A Lot Of Imitators
Posted by Joseph Lee on 02.04.2014



In an interview with IGN, Billy Bob Thornton said that Bad Santa "spawned a lot of imitators" after its release.

Here are highlights:

On Bad Santa getting a sequel: "I've never done sequels but this is one that kind of begs for one. And it seems right to me. It doesn't feel gratuitous to do a sequel, where as with some other movies I think it might be. Like I was asked to do a sequel to Sling Blade over, and over, and over. But how would you do that? That would just be milking it to do that. But Bad Santa is open for a sequel, and I think that with a comedy that's okay."

On the imitators: "I did Mr. Woodcock and Bad Santa and you look at some of those movies and they're combinations of those. Bad Santa was a movie that spawned a lot of imitators, there's no question about it."

On his character in the movie: "The thing about that character is that at the end of the day he's a sympathetic character, so you want to see this poor schmuck somehow find a glimmer of hope in life. But you don't want him to ever soften-up either. So that's the line we have to walk, just like in the first movie."
