Kathy Bates Plays Her Most 'Deviant' Character Yet In 'Bad Santa 2'!

Billy Bob Thornton keeps it cool in a pair of shades as he hits the red carpet at the premiere of his latest film Bad Santa 2 held at AMC Loews Lincoln Square on Tuesday (November 15) in New York City.

The 61-year-old actor was joined at the event by his co-stars Kathy Bates, Christina Hendricks, Brett Kelly, Tony Cox and Ryan Hansen, as well as Christina‘s husband Geoffrey Arend, Alysia Reiner, Dan Amboyer and Lewis Black, who all came out to show their support.

That same day, Kathy made an appearance on the TODAY show to talk about American Horror Story and her role in Bad Santa 2.

“I really go to play a role that I guess is the most deviant character I’ve ever played and I just jumped into the deep end,” Kathy expressed. “It was a dream of mine, I’ve been a big fan of the first movie Bad Santa so when they asked if I wanted to play Billy Bob’s mother, I said ‘where do I sign?’.” Watch the trailer for Bad Santa 2 here!
