Broadway stars light up 'Deck the Halls'

NEW YORK, Nov. 25 (UPI) -- Kristin Chenoweth says she loved sharing the big screen with her fellow Broadway star, Matthew Broderick, in the new U.S. Christmas comedy, "Deck the Halls."

In the film, Broderick, who starred in the Broadway version of "The Producers," and "Taxi" actor, Danny DeVito, play neighbors with different views on how to express their holiday cheer through home decoration.

Chenoweth, who starred in the Broadway hit, "Wicked," plays DeVito's wife in the movie.

"I love him. It's easy to kiss on him and hug him. He's a such a lovable guy," the petite actress said of DeVito, joking that he is one of the few actors she has worked with that is even shorter than she is.

"I have known (Broderick) for a long time," she said, confiding she has been a fan of his work since his 1986 movie, "Ferris Bueller's Day Off." "He made me laugh so hard in this film by being the straight man and it's not easy. He did it with Nathan (Lane in 'The Producers') and now he did it again with Danny and I'm really proud of him."
