Store dick's dead. Store dick don't want shit.
~ Marcus revealing his true colors
Marcus is the best friend of Willie Stokes in the crime comedy films Bad Santa & Bad Santa 2. He is portrayed by Tony Cox in both films.

He serves as the hidden main antagonist of Bad Santa.thumb|340px|link=File:Badsanta2.jpg

Role in Bad Santa

It is Christmas, Willie. But this is what we do; We get the shit. Christmastime, we get the shit... because we are men, and Lois. It is Christmas, Willie! And we are men, and Lois.
~ Marcus' monologue before attempting to shoot Willie
He is a dwarf who therefore poses as an elf. He later becomes the main antagonist because of Willie's unreliance (as shown when he warms up to bartender Sue and an orphan boy later revealed to be named Thurman Merman, and when Marcus tries to teach the boy to fight inappropriately). He and Lois are arrested in the end.

Marcus will return in the sequel. As shown in the trailers, Marcus has received an early release from prison and repairs his friendship with Willie so they can do another heist together. Marcus tells Willie that the next mission could earn them millions. Willie, as expected, is hesitant citing the ending moments of the original film "you tried to murder me!". Still, Willie forgives Marcus and agrees to be Santa Claus again.


Every year, you're worse. Every year, less reliable. More booze. More bullshit. More buttfucking. You gotta be able to rely, Willie.
~ Marcus explaining his betrayal
Marcus has purely materialistic intentions, simply seeing Christmas as a time for theft and profit. He takes his way of living extremely serious, and openly shows frustration when things don't go his way. Despite his easy-to-make-fun-of height, he always manages to win fights due to his cold-hearted comments. He constantly berates Willie for being a "loser" when he doesn't cooperate, but it is however implied to be because he genuinely cares for him and wants him to get better. In the end, however, Marcus decides he must kill Willie, which he does show a bit of remorse for.
