Dolly Parton is an angel
It’s a Christmas movie, and, of course, Dolly Parton is in it. In fact, she is not just in it, she is the IT! Parton plays an angel in the new Netflix movie, ‘Dolly Parton’s Christmas on the Square‘. The film follows a bossy woman entrepreneur, Regina Fuller, who has plans of constructing a shopping mall in her small hometown. Just before Christmas, she sends out eviction notices to the local people about whom she cares little to none. She has no empathy or holiday spirit whatsoever.
That’s when an angel drops on earth following Regina around the town while Christian, the local pastor, gets the town community together to walk on a rally. Directed by Debbie Allen, ‘Dolly Parton’s Christmas on the Square’ is a tale of redemption and the Christmas spirit. Also, look out for the amazing musical numbers!
Moreover, 2020 has shown Dolly Parton some busy days. Not only did she, out of the blue if we may say so, funded the vaccine for Covid-19, but she has also produced the Netflix movie. In short, being in the cast of ‘Dolly Parton’s Christmas on the Square’ is not all that she has done for the film. She has even written the 14 musical pieces and why not, Parton loves a good Christmas musical! She told “Entertainment Weekly“,
“I love all the Christmas shows on TV, all the Christmas specials — and especially any Christmas musical, and this is my first Christmas musical”.
Christine Baranski should steal the show
Speaking of Christmas, we can’t miss the Scrooge of course. Christine Baranski, the award-winning actress you may remember from popular shows and musicals like ‘The Big Bang Theory‘, ‘The Good Wife‘, ‘Into the Woods‘, and ‘Mamma Mia!’ plays the grumpy bossy businesswoman, Regina Fuller. We have seen her as an emotionless and thoughtless person in ‘The Big Bang Theory’ and we see her in the same avatar once again in the Netflix film. She is the lady who tries to ruin Christmas for the locals of her hometown, Fullerville.
While the cast of ‘Dolly Parton’s Christmas on the Square’ could not foresee how 2020 would have been one hell of a dumpster fire, Christian Baranski believes that the film has met its perfect timing. Apparently, there could not have been a better year for this Netflix film. She said,
“Thank god. Thank god we did it and thank god we waited to release it an extra year. I think the world needs it so badly. This year it’s going to be a real gift to people”.
Who else is in the new Netflix Christmas movie?
As we promised, there’s more than one star studding the Christmas tree for Netflix this year. Among the other cast members of ‘Dolly Parton’s Christmas on the Square‘ is the ‘Grey’s Anatomy‘ actor Jeanine Mason who plays Regina’s assistant, Felicity Sorenson. Treat Williams, known for playing Benny Severide from ‘Chicago Fire’, plays Carl Pelham, the ex-boyfriend of Regina Fuller. Jennifer Lewis, whom we know from playing Ruby in ‘Black-ish’ also stars in the film as the first businesswoman of Fullerville, Margeline. Hold on, we are not done yet! Josh Segarra aka Prometheus from ‘Arrow’ plays the pastor, Christian Hathaway.
The Netflix Christmas movie has reunited some of the legends of the Hollywood industry and it’s going to be all bling on the screen. Jeanine Mason got candid about how it was to watch the four legends – Allen, Parton, Baranski, and Lewis – work together on set. She said,
“Truly, to watch the four of them work — they are all legends, and they have such unbelievable careers, and they are really well matched. They are in the same rhythm. They are such consummate professionals, such optimists”.
