Country star Trace Adkins is set for a grim and ghostly appearance opposite Kelsey Grammer in David Zucker's indie Christmas comedy An American Carol.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jon Voight, Leslie Nielsen and Dennis Hopper have cameos in the takeoff on Charles Dickens' classic holiday tale. The singer will play the Spirit of Christmas Future (aka the Grim Reaper), who uses his musical abilities to help Scrooge (Grammer) avoid a tragic end.

The film is shooting in Los Angeles through April 15.
