My *Quick* Take:

I'm truly delighted to see Marc Blucas doing rom-com style TV movies again. I know many of us have been wondering what happened to him on Hallmark. We last saw a movie like this from him during the 2020 holiday season, with Good Morning, Christmas!. I think Marc Blucas will add a wonderful on-screen presence opposite of Candace in this all new film for Great American Family. I hope this means we will see a lot more of him in the future on this channel!

Have a Merry Day! Net


UPDATE:

The original casting call sheet I was sent for this film has been removed online. It has been replaced with this one:
https://okfilmmusic.org/jobs/casting-calls-jobs/first-extras-needed-for-a-christmas-present

The information on there has completely changed, and must've been an error. At this point, we don't really know what happened, but I wanted to be certain you all were aware of this change.

  1. This is wonderful news. I am so happy for a married couple movie, and one where they are not getting a divorce. A Perfect Christmas is one of my favorites cause it is a newly married couple navigating thru marriage and things that come along and how they get thru it. I ADORE Marc Blucas so this is great news and he and Candace will be great together.

  2. I think it's a case of wait and see with this one - depends on the content.

    I honestly don't think Marc Blucas could possibly have the same chemistry with anyone else that he had with Alison Sweeney - Florence

  3. little confused about this announcement. They are just now filming this? I thought most of these have been completed by now.

    1. I use the QVC shopping channel as my "white noise" machine that I sometimes fall asleep to because there are no commercials that get really loud and wake me up. (The funny thing is I've never actually purchased anything from there.) Anyway.... I think it was maybe last week that Candace was on there selling her clothing line and she mentioned that she was flying out the next day to go film a Christmas movie for this season and she was going to wear one of her own clothing designs in the movie. I remember thinking that it didn't seem to be enough time to film a movie, but what do I know about movie production??

    2. Jane, I saw Candace on QVC, as well, with her Fall fashion line - and I also heard her say was leaving the next day to film her new Christmas movie. And the host wished her safe travels, etc... Maybe we were watching together!

      Anyway, it is rather surprising so many of the Christmas movies are filmed so late. I recall Cindy Busby said she filmed 'Joy for Christmas' last year in November!

  4. Since the original casting news we were given regarding this film has changed, I decided to remove all comments regarding this matter.

    I hope you all will understand my decision on this, as I didn't want anyone else visiting here to be misinformed or confused.

    I appreciate you all.

  8. I am so excited! Marc Blucas has always been my favorite. I love all of his family- friendly movies, but my all time favorite is Season For Love. I have hoped for years that he would do a movie (preferably Fall themed) with Emilie Ullerup but I will take a movie with him and any other leading lady as long as it's clean. :)
