In the TV movie Northpole: Open For Christmas, single businesswoman Mackenzie Reed (Lori Loughlin) inherits her aunt’s once-majestic but now rundown inn. Before trying to sell it before Christmas, she needs to fix it up. So Mackenzie works with the inn’s staff including handsome handyman Ian. With the help of an adorable, magical elf named Clementine (Bailee Madison), the couple gets the job done and falls in love.
Ian is portrayed by Dermot Mulroney. He’s best known for his roles in the films My Best Friend’s Wedding with Julia Roberts, About Schmidt with Jack Nicholson, and Jobs (he played Mike Markkula). Mulroney is also known for his roles in the TV shows Shameless (Sean Pierce), Crisis (Francis Gibson), New Girl (Russell Shilelr), Enlightened (Jeff Flender), and Friends (Gavin Mitchell). Northpole: Open For Christmas will premiere on Hallmark Channel on November 21 at 8pm.
