Christmas with Kristin Chenoweth

by Allison Waldman, posted May 28th 2009 9:37AM
Kristin Chenoweth in sunI know it's only May and hardly the time to start thinking of egg nog and holly and Ebenezer Scrooge or any of the other Christmas standbys, but forgive me if I let out a whoop of happiness about the news that Kristin Chenoweth will star in The Twelve Men of Christmas TV movie. The romantic comedy is slated to be part of the Fa La La La La Lifetime lineup (try saying that three times fast!), and while another holiday film doesn't usually make me gleeful, this one does.

Kristin Chenoweth is a gem. I'm still bereft that we'll probably never see her Olive Snook again because Pushing Daisies is gone unless there's a movie, and I was tiffed that the David E. Kelly NBC pilot Legally Mad was not picked up only because La Chenoweth was in it.

Therefore, while this TV movie may be just another holiday trifle -- one surely to be repeated year after year if it's a winner -- I'll add it to my list of Christmas fare simply because she's in it.

The Lifetime pic is the story of a hard luck PR executive who takes on an impossible task, bringing excitement and media attention to a small town Montana. No doubt it will take place around Christmas time, and unless I miss my guess, Kristin will be singing Christmas carols at the drop of a hat. In fact, the film should provide a major plug for her 2008 CD, A Lovely Way to Spend Christmas, which I happened to have and it's terrific.

But seriously, if it was up to me, they'd turn this TV movie into a musical and just let the Broadway Tony-winner warble as often as possible. Speaking of musical TV shows, Kristin is also supposed to be do a recurring bit on Fox's Glee. Perhaps she'll be on its Christmas episode?

WHEE! Anytime I can see Kristin Chenoweth is a good time. Thanks for the heads up on her Xmas CD. That's going on my list now.
