James Caan to the Rescue!

No time to trim the tree this year -- James Caan's got a writer strike to settle.

While making a quick getaway Tuesday afternoon in his shiny white Bentley, the former wiseguy and papa of five told TMZ he plans to spend his holidays trying to settle the nasty dispute that's left TV viewers in rerun Hell. See, Virginia, there IS a Santa Claus!

Also in LA: Tim Meadow jaywalked, Josh Brolin and Diane Lane rode in style and Mrs Chow went into Mr. Chow. (Get your mind out of the gutter!)

All this and more in today's "Jimmy, Jimmy, he's our man" edition of Star Catcher.
