"When I first read page 1 of the script and the title, 'Lexmas,'" I almost vomited," Rosenbaum said. "I didn't want to be the first Christmas story. I didn't want to be some bald guy in a Santa suit. I kept reading and I couldn't put it down."

Here's where you get in on the action. Did you see a link we didn't catch? Have you snuck into a closed movie set, and have inside data?

Whatever it is, we wanna know it all -- fire off an email and let us know whether you want your name used or your contributions to geekdom to go down anonymously. Broadcasting live from Los Angeles, this is novelist/reviewer/karaoke host/all-around lunatic Hannibal Tabu saying thanks for your time and indulgence, I've just learned that fresh comics reviews are being moved to Fridays, and [tagline sent back to development hell until something hipper can be dreamed up].
