Netflix announced today that Catherine Zeta-Jones and Luis Guzman will star as Morticia and Gomez Addams in the new series Wednesday, the latest TV adaptation of the venerable Addams Family comic strip and franchise.
(In the original Addams Family live-action TV series, the characters were played by Carolyn Jones and John Astin.) Replacing those actors will not be easy, but Zeta-Jones and Guzman sound like a very promising duo.
