The Santa Clause (1994)
Disney, who has a policy of not hiring any ex-convicts, made an exception for Tim Allen, who starred as Scott Calvin/Santa Claus in the film. On October 2, 1978, Allen was arrested in the Kalamazoo/Battle Creek International Airport for possession of over 650 grams (1.4 lb) of cocaine. He subsequently pleaded guilty to drug trafficking charges, and provided the names of other dealers in exchange for a sentence of three to seven years rather than a possible life imprisonment. He was paroled on June 12, 1981, after serving 2 years and 4 months in Federal Correctional Institution in Sandstone, Minnesota.
