Former DIFF'RENT STROKES star Gary Coleman is keeping himself busy after his failed bid to become Governor of California, by showing Tori Spelling the error of her ways in a TV movie.

Coleman, who was defeated in the historical recall election by action hero Arnold Schwarzenegger, has signed up to star alongside the former BEVERLY HILLS 90210 actress in an update of A Christmas Carol, called A CAROL CHRISTMAS.

Coleman, 35, will play the ghost of Christmas past in the film.

He says, "I try to straighten out Tori Spelling's life - she plays the bitchy talk show host."
