Exclusive: Lifetime Gives More Holiday Cheer to The Hoff's Christmas Consultant

David Hasselhoff

It had all the makings of a holiday camp classic. Lifetime's seasonal TV movie The Christmas Consultant stars David Hasselhoff as a green bow tie-wearing, bespectacled holiday hero who helps an overworked and overstressed family get through December.

Exclusive Community Roundtable: Head of the Class

Community

Interviewing the entire cast of Community together is a fool's errand, but a fortunate fool's. Ken Jeong, who plays professor-turned-student Señor Chang, wears only a navy bathrobe. "You've been off camera for an hour and you can't even put a shirt on," jokingly scolds Gillian Jacobs (the often brittle Britta). Jeong deadpans, "There goes the buzzkill — it's all about her."
