Comedian Luis Guzman is Gomez Addams on Netflix The Addams family spin-off series, Wednesday.
According to Variety,, Wednesday received an eight-episode order from the streaming service. Al Gough and Miles Millar will star executive producers and series hosts. Tim Burton he is also involved as an executive producer and will direct. It was also announced that actress Jenna Ortega (You) will be displayed as Wednesday Addams.
The show’s synopsis reads: “Wednesday’s attempts to master her apparent psychic abilities, thwart a monstrous killing spree that terrorized a local town and solve a supernatural mystery that entangled her parents 25 years ago – as they moved on their new and very intricate relationship in Nevermore. ”
As patriarch of the Addams family, Guzman joins other actors who have landed the role, including Tim Curry, Raul Julia, John Astin and most recently Oscar Issac as Gomez Addams in the 2019 animated adaptation. The Addams family. The comedian / actor has a career spanning almost 40 years with some of his greatest TV / movie hits Boogie Nights,, Carlito’s way,, Punch Drunk Love i Narcos, i Shameless.
The whole plot of the series is simple. Still, I wonder what issues he will address in this show, especially with the two main Latin American actors (Ortega and Guzman), since Raul Julia played Gomez Addams in 1991 and 1993. After the actor died of stomach cancer in 1994 at the age of of 54, no one was sure if it was The Addams family the legacy will continue as his colleagues (Anjelica Huston and Christina Ricci) did not want to make another film without him. I think the new casting is inspired and I’m excited about the series because Wednesday is my favorite family member.
