    Here's What The Addams Family Look Like Today

    They're not as creepy or as kooky…

    1. Anjelica Huston as Morticia Addams

    Fun Fact: Cher wanted to play the part of Morticia, however producer Scott Rudin always had Anjelica Huston in mind for the role. To obtain the perfect Morticia look, Huston had to endure a metal corset and her eyes being stretched with glue.

    2. Christopher Lloyd as Uncle Fester

    Fun Fact: Christopher Lloyd was already a big fan of Fester before being cast to play him. The Back to the Future star grew up reading Charles Addams’ cartoons and was particularly fond of the bald-headed uncle of the Addams clan – so much so that he shaved his head for the part.

    3. Christina Ricci as Wednesday Addams

    Fun Fact: After gaining a reputation for perfectly portraying dark characters, Christina Ricci went on to star in Casper, Sleepy Hollow, and Monster.

    4. Jimmy Workman as Pugsley Addams

    Fun Fact: Although Jimmy Workman no longer acts himself, he's still pretty close to the industry through his sisters, Shanelle Workman and Ariel Winter. Ariel is best known for playing Alex Dunphy in Modern Family.

    Fun Fact: The body attached to the mischievous limb belongs to Christopher Hart, a magician and hand model. He's since appeared in Quicksilver Highway, Idle Hands, and an episode of Angel – playing a hand in all of them.

    Raúl Juliá, who portrayed Gomez Addams, died in 1994 at the age of 54, and was therefore not added to this list.
