Ed Asner celebrates 10 years of Elf
Ed Asner turned on the Christmas tree lights at the Warner Brothers studio in Hollywood to help celebrate the 10th anniversary of Elf.
The 84-year-old actor played Santa Claus in the hit Will Ferrell comedy and is often named as one of the top 10 best big screen Santas.
Ed, who unveiled the tree which will feature as part of the Warner Brothers VIP Tour, said: " I was invited to commemorate the 10 years of Elf. I feel time went awfully fast.
"I wish everybody a very Merry Christmas, these are times when we could use a very Merry Christmas. And may it result in such happiness for everyone, anywhere, that they'll never forget."
Despite being 84, the actor has a busy new year ahead of him.
He revealed: "I have a tour of my one man show of Roosevelt and about a week from now, I'll be doing the Men At Work series as a guest star."
