Well, well, well, extras. It seems the TV industry is finally giving you some face time. "The Year Without a Santa Claus," a TV movie starring John Goodman, has visages from northwest Louisiana plastered all over its candy-colored world.
Who, oh, who gets the most exposure? I recognize a few folks. One featured prominently is Shreveport's most accomplished mugger, Eric Gipson.
He plays a henchmen of the evil elf (Chris Kattan), who is sucking the spirit out of poor Santa with a craze to commercialize Christmas. Shocker of a storyline, I know.
The star throws a cell phone, and Gipson catches it. The star looks confused, and Gipson raises a single eyebrow. As schtick goes, it's scene-stealing.
"The Year Without a Santa Claus," another cautionary tale about consumerism gone wild, premieres Dec. 11 on NBC.
If you think you are in the movie, email me a mugshot.
