Fred Armisen as Uncle Fester in Wednesday
The long wait is finally over as Armisen is now revealed to play the role of Uncle Fester in Wednesday.
This time, fans are about to see a different—and bald—side of him, and yes, he confirmed he shaved his head for the series, along with other dramatical physical changes.
"They really did such a great job with the makeup and everything," he told Vanity Fair. "I had no eyebrows. It was prosthetics over my eyebrows to give me that look. But I think that bald caps don't look great all the time, so I was hoping to just make it that much more convincing."
The assumptions about the actor playing Fester in the series got incredibly wild, especially after the whole Addams Family was introduced. As many hoped it was Johnny Depp, Armisen secured the character.
