In the Lifetime TV movie The Christmas Gift, as a little girl Megan (Michelle Trachtenberg) received an anonymous gift from a little boy. The gift — a writing journal — had a great impact on her life. Twenty years later, now a professional journalist, Megan wants to find her Secret Santa and thank him. While researching a Christmas story for work, assigned by her editor, Megan finds the boy-now-man and falls in love.
Megan’s editor is portrayed by Rick Fox. He’s best known as a three-time NBA champion with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Fox appeared as Councilman Blackmon in the 2015 indie film Dope (which was produced by Pharrell Williams), and in the TV movie Sharknado 3 Oh Hell No! as Principal Webb. The Christmas Gift premieres on Lifetime on November 29 at 8pm.
