It's Been Over 25 Years Since The Addams Family Movie, But Where Are They Now?

It seems like every generation has their own iteration of The Addams Family, but definitely one of the most popular was the 1991 film. The cast created a masterpiece that perfectly blends the creepy nature of the Addams Family with awesome comedic elements that makes it fun for all ages. There was something for everyone, as long as you liked your family-based comedies on the dark side!

The cast was super impressive. There were some huge names like Anjelica Huston and Christopher Lloyd, but what is the whole family up to now? Let's find out!

Anjelica Huston - Morticia Addams

The matriarch of the family was perfect in this movie. It's possible there is no such thing as a better Morticia Addams. Anjelica Huston herself is an award winning actress who has been in so many movies and TV shows since. She has recently been in the show Transparent, and doing some voice over work as well. She is just the best Morticia.

Raul Julia - Gomez Addams

Raul passed away shortly after filming the sequel at the age of 54 in 1994. Gomez Addams was actually one of the last few roles he played. He had a long career before this movie, including a short time on Sesame Street!

Christopher Lloyd - Uncle Fester Addams / Gordon Craven

Christopher Lloyd is a legend in Hollywood, having appeared in movies like Back to the Future and Who Framed Roger Rabbit. He hasn't seemed to have slowed down at all, and even still revisits Doc Brown for video games and a quick short clip they made in 2015. He has quite a few projects that are set to come out in 2017, and has recently been appearing in some TV series and TV movies.

Christina Ricci - Wednesday Addams

Christina Ricci seems to be one of those child stars that managed to completely thrive in the Hollywood life. She has been in so many other classic movies including Casper and Now and Then when she was younger, then more recently she has done a few TV shows including The Lizzie Borden Chronicles and Z: The Beginning of Everything.

Jimmy Workman - Pugsly Addams

Good ol' Pugsly Addams. He put up with so much from his sister. Acting turned out to not really be for him, so he stopped working back in 2004. He does however apparently still work behind the scenes and on the tehcnical side, but his real-life younger sister is actually the big celebrity of his family. Do you know how his sister is? Ariel Winter from Modern family! I'm sure she's a much nicer sister than Wednesday.

Carel Struycken - Lurch

Everyone's favorite spooky butler appeared in a lot of other classics like Men in Black and Star Trek: The Next Generation. He will be in the upcoming Twin Peaks revival that is due out in 2017.

Judith Malina - Granny

She acted here and there over the years, in 2010 in a movie with Kristen Bell called When in Rome. She passed away in 2015 at the age of 88.

Christopher Hart - Thing

Thing was actually played by magician Christopher Hart who actually appears in several other TV shows including the sequels Addams family Values, Addams Family Reunion and the movie Idle Hands. He always just plays the hands though, never anything more.

John Franklin - Cousin It

You may not see the face of Cousin It, but the actor has started making a comeback! He was away from the screen for 10 years between 2004 and 2014, but now he has had a few guest parts on some TV shows including Brooklyn Nine Nine.

Share if you remember watching The Addams Family! At least it was nice to know there was at least one family weirder than yours right?
