Tim Allen slammed for being rude on ‘The Santa Clauses’ set: ‘Worst experience’

Tim Allen reprises his role of Santa/Scott Calvin in "The Santa Clauses." He appears in a scene with Matilda Lawler, far left, Elizabeth Allen-Dick, Austin Kane and Elizabeth Mitchell.

(US Today) – Tim Allen is more Scrooge than Santa, a former co-star claims.

Casey Wilson accused the “Home Improvement” star of being rude on set during work on the Disney+ series “The Santa Clauses,” the latest installment in “The Santa Clause” franchise.

Wilson, 43, played the adult version of Sara, the little girl Allen’s Scott Calvin first encountered as Santa in the first film, in one episode of the 2022 series.

In a recent episode of the “Saturday Night Live” actor’s podcast, Wilson called working with Allen, 70, the “worst, truly single worst experience I’ve ever had with a co-star ever.”

The “Gone Girl” actor said while in a scene with the “Toy Story” star where his character — as Santa  — comes down the chimney and frightens Sara, Allen made things difficult by complaining about her performance to a producer standing a few feet away from her.

“I basically hear him, he goes, ‘You gotta tell her to stop stepping on my lines,'” Wilson said. “The producer turns to me with horror on his face and has to walk one foot to me and he goes, ‘Tim would ask that you stopped stepping on his lines.'”
