Here’s another episode of The Filmcraziest Show featuring a Christmas film, as I chat with Robert Bockstael (pictured in the featured image in the background on the right) who plays Captain Jacobs in the new Mel Gibson film Fatman. In Fatman, a rowdy, unorthodox Santa Claus (Gibson) fights to save his declining business by taking on a government contract proposed by the military, represented by Captain Jacobs (Bockstael). Meanwhile, Billy (Chance Hurtsfield), a neglected and bratty 12-year-old, hires a hit man (Walton Goggins) to kill Santa after receiving a lump of coal in his stocking. The film also stars Marianne Jean-Baptiste and Eric Wolfe, and it is written and directed by Eshom Nelms and Ian Nelms.

He hops on the express train to Washington D.C., the Holiday Express, and it’s hijacked by an angry gang of domestic terrorists and government trained raccoons. Casey joins forces with a porter on the train to fight back against the terrorists. The film is written and directed by Travis Irvine.
