In Hallmark Channel's new film "Help for the Holidays," actress Summer Glau ("Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles") stars as Christine, one of Santa's elves who is assigned the task of helping a little boy in Los Angeles as his family is in dire need of a wake up call. Eva La Rue ("All My Children") and Dan Gauthier ("One Life to Live") portray Sara and Scott VanCamp, the boy's mother and father, whose Christmas gift shop, Holly Daze, is booming. As a result, Will (Mason Cook, "Spy Kids: All the Time in the World") and his sister Ally (Izabela Vidovic, "Christmas Angel") are often left unsupervised, with the exception of when Sara's brother Dave (John Brotherton, "One Life to Live") is available.

“Television has seen many stars, but there will only be one Larry Hagman. Larry was a larger-than-life personality, both on-screen and off -- a master showman and brilliant actor who brought to life a character that transcended the medium and truly captivated a nation. Today, we mourn the loss of a friend, but remember a man who brought true greatness to his craft and a television character in J.R. Ewing that will never be forgotten.”
