CAST OF THE NEW ADDAMS FAMILY

His first screenplay, STOLEN, was produced starring John Hamm and Jessica Chastain. When not acting or writing he can be found in the first booth at Del Taco, eating his way through the menu, reading Vanity Fair and wondering if George Clooney is really all that happy.

Michael Roberds (Uncle Fester) From
"The New Addams Family"
In the mid 1980's, Michael began doing extra work in locally filmed movies and television shows and soon found this to be quite lucrative. When he finally stopped last year, he estimated that he had appeared in the background of some 500 different projects! Over the next few years Michael slowly climbed the acting ladder from one-line performances to guest-star roles in episodic TV shows and Movies of the Week.
All of this culminating in the spring of 1998 when he won the role of Uncle Fester in The New Addams Family and he was finally working full-time doing what he was born to do: "make faces at a camera." Since that show wrapped, he has been busy appearing in several feature films - including Elf and Hot Tub Time Machine - and TV series - such as Supernatural and Once Upon a Time - alongside such actors as Dennis Hopper, James Spader and John Cusack.
Nicole Fugere (Wednesday) From
'The New Addams Family'

After the New Addams Family series ended its run, Nicole moved back to her hometown in Oregon and continued acting in her local High School theater performances.
She now lives in Seattle, Washington and works for K2 Sports as an Interactive Designer and Project Manager. She is currently back in school at the University of Washington to receive her Masters in Human-Centered Design and Engineering.
