Oscar Isaac has finally been cast as Gomez in The Addams Family.
And it might just be his true calling.
According to The Tracking Board, it looks as though Oscar Isaac has landed a voice role in The Addams Family’s upcoming animated film.
“Christmas has come early for the Internet, which should be delighted by this news – just as Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters, its star Oscar Isaac is in negotiations to voice Gomez Addams in MGM’s animated movie The Addams Family.”
Of course, this is great news.
The internet has been obsessed with getting Oscar Isaac to play Gomez in The Addams Family for years. After all, he would make a fine substitute for Raul Julia, who took the iconic role in the earlier live-action movies from the early ‘90s.
But who will he be joining?
Unfortunately, there’s no word on the rest of the cast just yet… and it sounds as though MGM is keen to get Oscar Isaac in place before they look any further.
“There’s no word on any casting yet for Morticia, Wednesday, Pugsley, Lurch or Uncle Fester yet, as MGM is waiting to close its deal with Isaac first before moving on to the rest of the family. The deal could still hit a snag, but voice roles are considered easy money, and Isaac hasn’t done a major animated movie yet, so this would be as good a fit as any.”
If you ask me, Oscar Isaac is a great choice for this.
It’s just a shame we won’t be seeing him as a live-action Gomez.
Now that would be amazing.
Oscar Isaac can currently be seen in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
