There was very little “ho ho ho-ing” on the set of Disney+’s The Santa Clauses, if one of the co-stars is be believed.

Casey Wilson, who appeared alongside Tim Allen for the pilot episode of the series, slammed him in a recent talk on her podcast. She claims working with him was the “truly single worst experience I’ve ever had with a costar ever.”

“Tim Allen was such a b – – h,” she said. The Saturday Night Live star claimed she didn’t put Allen on the naughty list right away, saying she “buried this” information for more than a year since the series’ release. Why? A friend was a producer and her kids “loved the movies.”

The series was a continuation of Allen’s classic “Santa Clause” films. Wilson portrayed “Adult Sarah” in the series, the grown version of the girl who gave Santa soy milk in the first film.

“So I’m in a scene. It’s just me and Tim Allen and I’m supposed to throw things at him,” Wilson said. “I think he’s a burglar. So he’s coming down the chimney, obviously as Santa, and I am woken up thinking there’s an intruder, basically like a home invasion scene. So I’m throwing things at him.

“[He] goes over to the producer who is standing four feet from me and goes, and I hear him, he goes, ‘You gotta tell her to stop stepping on my lines.’ The producer turns to me with horror on his face and has to walk one foot to me and he goes, ‘Um, Tim would ask that you stop stepping on his lines.’”

That was just the start.

Wilson also alleged that Allen “was so f – – king rude” once he was done filming his scenes, and that “everybody was walking on eggshells” around him and “just looked frantic.”

“It’s the end, and Tim Allen goes, ‘Leaving!’ takes his Santa cape, picks it up and drops it on the floor and walks out,” Wilson said. “And they hustle in his stand-in. lovely man, who was much nicer to act against. People are scurrying to pick up his velvet Santa coat.”

She continued, “He’s a b – – h. And this is the best … I will not say who said this. This was someone that I do not know, perhaps in the crew. [He or she] breezes past me and just goes, ‘You’re seeing him on a good day.’”

Allen has not responded to the allegations.
