“All I Want For Christmas” is a Hallmark Original Movie starring Gail O’Grady as a young widow whose son plays matchmaker. The holiday movie airs during Hallmark's popular Countdown to Christmas programming.
"All I Want for Christmas stars Emmy nominee Gail O'Grady (“NYPD Blue,” “American Dreams”), SAG Award winner Greg Germann (“Ally McBeal”) and Robert Mailhouse (Hallmark Channel’s “Love is a Four Letter Word”).
Sara (O’Grady) is a good hearted and attractive widow with little time for romance. Her husband died seven years ago and Sara stays busy raising her wise-beyond-his-years son, Jesse (Jimmy Jax Pinchak, “The Polar Express”), and running a local community center that feeds the poor.
Jesse decides that his mother needs romance and a new husband. He enters a toy company contest that asks children for their greatest Christmas wish. Jesse wishes that the toy company would find his mom a new husband.
Sara only agrees to the public matchmaking scheme only if the toy company will make a large donation to her beloved community center, knowing that they will make a fortune off of the publicity.
She suddenly finds herself in a whirlwind of dates, with cameras following her every move. Soon, it becomes obvious that she has more chemistry with Roger (Germann), the son of the toy company CEO, than with any of the official bachelors. It looks like a true love match between Sara and the wealthy Roger, who can offer her the world.
Jesse, however, begins to realize that he would rather see his mom end up with Ben (Mailhouse), their longtime friend and neighbor who is attractive, loyal and supportive. Ben already has a girlfriend, so he is unavailable...or is he?
Could it be that what they wanted was in front of them all along?
The cast of "All I Want for Christmas includes: Gail O’Grady (Sara Armstrong), Greg Germann (Roger Nelson), Robert Mailhouse (Ben Grant) and Jimmy ‘Jax’ Pinchak (Jesse).
