Country singer Trace Adkins is to play the GHOST OF CHRISTMAS FUTURE in Kelsey Grammer's new patriotic version of CHARLES DICKENS' classic A Christmas Carol. The Chrome singer will haunt Grammer's Ebenezer Scrooge in a new historic adaptation of the hit festive tale, called An American Carol. Adkins joins a cast that includes Jon Voight, Leslie Nielsen and Dennis Hopper, who all have cameos. It's not Adkins' first film role - he featured in horror film Trailer Park Of Terror. The country star also finished runner-up to British journalist Piers Morgan in Donald Trump's U.S. reality TV series Celebrity Apprentice last month (Mar08).
