‘Addams Family’ reboot in talks to cast Oscar Isaac as Gomez Addams

The fans have mixed feelings.

Oscar Isaac has been tapped by MGM to play Gomez Addams in the reboot of the cult franchise ‘The Addams Family’ and fans have mixed feelings.

Isaac, fresh off of his second appearance as Poe Dameron in ‘The Last Jedi’, is reportedly in negotiations with MGM to play the father of the Addams family, according to The Tracking Board.

Fans of both Isaac and the family Addams have been pushing for this for a while, especially considering the Star Wars actor’s resemblance to Raul Julia, the last actor to play Gomez in both 1991’s ‘The Addams Family’ and the 1993 sequel ‘Addams Family Values’.



This reboot has been a long time coming with Tim Burton being in charge of a stop-motion 3D version of the film in 2010, before the reboot in this form came about in 2013.

However, and here’s the catch, the reboot is still animated. Many people online are questioning the thinking to cast Oscar Isaac’s voice as Gomez depriving the screen of his face.

Meanwhile, fans are convinced they saw James Corden appear in the Oscar Isaac starring ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’.
