Oscar Isaac Fan Cast as Gomez Addams After Wednesday First Look

The first trailer for Netflix’s Wednesday series has debuted, revealing Catherine Zeta-Jones and Luis Guzmán as the Addams parents, but many can’t get their mind off of Oscar Isaac as Gomez.

We see what fans of the franchise are saying about Isaac’s fan cast and take a look at the confirmed cast list of the series.

Created by Alfred Gough and Miles Millar for Netflix, the American comedy horror Wednesday is a series based on the character of Wednesday Addams from the iconic Addams Family franchise, starring Jenna Ortega, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Isaac Ordonez, and more.

Fans Want Oscar Isaac as Live-Action Gomez Addams

As soon as Gomez Addams was cast on Wednesday, fans believed it was a “missed opportunity” that Oscar Isaac was not brought in as the patriarch.

Many Twitter users posted gifs and images of Isaac in Zack Snyder’s 201 movie Sucker Punch, where many feel his image in the role of Blue Jones was physically very close to Gomez Addams.

Isaac Did Voice Gomez in the 2019 Animation

What’s ironic is the Dune and Moon Knight actor already portrayed Gomez Addams in the 2019 animation The Addams Family.

Isaac voiced the character alongside Charlize Theron’s Morticia Addams, Chloë Grace Moretz’s Wednesday, and Finn Wolfhard’s Pugsley.

However, many fans of the actor agree that Isaac matches both Gomez’s voice and looks.
