As most of you will remember that from Wednesday ‘s promotional campaign.
Tim Burton ‘s Netflix Addams Family series , one iconic character was left out: Uncle Fester . An aura of mystery revolved around this figure and the creators of the series Miles Millar and Alfred Gough had limited themselves to saying :
We have no comments on Uncle Fester. Watch the series.
A few hours ago, however, a new trailer was released that has finally shed light on this mystery, revealing who plays Uncle Fester in the series. This is Fred Armisen , American comedian, actor and musician. Armisen is best known for being a cast member on Saturday Night Live and throughout his career he has starred in films such as EuroTrip, Anchorman, Cops Out – Two Cops On The Loose and most recently Ad Astra and The Bubble .
