Christina Hendricks has joined the cast of Bad Santa 2, the Miramax and Broad Green Pictures sequel that returns Billy Bob Thornton, Tony Cox and Brett Kelly from the 2003 original. Kathy Bates also is aboard. Hendricks will play a new character who runs a charitable organization.

Miramax and Broad Green are partnering to co-finance and co-produce the pic, being directed by Mark Waters, and a November 23 release date has been set. Principal photography starts this month in Montreal.

She is starring opposite Michael Shannon in the indie Pottersville which has now begun shooting, and she has a starring role on SundanceTV’s Hap And Leonard, a series based on the Joe Lansdale novel. She is repped by ICM Partners, LINK and attorney Howard Fishman.

Johnny Rosenthal, Doug Ellin and Shauna Cross wrote the Bad Santa 2 screenplay. Geyer Kosinski and Andrew Gunn are producing, and executive producers are Miramax’s Zanne Devine and David Thwaites, Broad Green’s Gabriel and Daniel Hammond, Waters, Jessica Tuchinsky, Ellin and Adam Fields.

Christina Hendricks and Geoffrey Arend Front Brooks Brothers’ Fall Campaign

The couple, who are part of the star-studded group telling their “Brooks Brothers Story” for the brand’s fall campaign, open up about their wedding day.

Brooks Brothers unveiled its fall 2015 campaign today, and the collection showcases not only the brand’s premium designs but a handful of celebrity stories, too.

The campaign’s theme, “My Brooks Brothers Story” highlights the personal testimonials of Christina Hendricks and her husband Geoffrey Arend, Tony Goldwyn, Matt McGorry, Yara Shahidi, Graham Moore and Joshua Sasse — all of whom are loyal fans of the iconic American brand.

Perhaps the most important sartorial decision a man can make is what to wear on his wedding day. Geoffrey selected a Brooks Brothers custom-made three-piece glen plaid suit in which to marry Christina Hendricks in 2009. “I have long arms and long legs; I’m like a monster to fit for a suit,” Arend jokes. “When I put the suit on, it was almost like I was wearing a suit for the first time.”

The couple are starring in the “What’s your Brooks Brothers story?” photographed by Carlo Miari Fulcis. On the last day of shooting in Milk Studios in Hollywood, Hendricks jokes that they’re like one of those old married couples out of a romantic comedy. Except that their chemistry is no Hollywood act. Arend starts reminiscing about proposing to the eight-time Emmy nominee. “You have to give the abbreviated story!” she exclaims. But he doesn’t. Instead, he recounts each carefully planned detail, from the chandelier under which he proposed, to selecting the glen plaid fabric for the Brooks Brothers suit he wore down the aisle. They were introduced by a mutual actor friend in 2007.

Of their New York City wedding, Hendricks recalls, “He just looked so handsome—and so nervous. He looked so nervous!” Her husband admits that he was, but adds, “That day, dressed like that, I felt like the most powerful man in the world.” After the shoot wraps, Hendricks jumps to pick up the couple’s cockapoo puppy, Zou Zou, who’s been watching from the sidelines. The happy family is complete again.
