ADDAMS FAMILY 2 nabs Bill Hader, Javon “Wanna” Walton to voice starry two-peat & here’s your casting chance

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent

It’s a running joke right now in Los Angeles that Halloween will be shortened to Half-o-ween this year due to Social Distancing, No Hands Candy, and Trick or Trick no Treats. But not for MGM, which has something really fun planned for the homebound and the Hollywood-bound with a chance to be in their new movie, along with the talent-heavy cast already signed, read on…

Curated by Screenmancer Ghostwriter The sequel to MGM’s 2019 box-office smash hit, The Addams Family has rounded out its stellar voice cast with the additions of Bill Hader as all-new character “Cyrus,” and Javon “Wanna” Walton taking on the role of the youngest Addams sibling, “Pugsley.” Hader and Walton join returning Addams Family film stars Charlize Theron (Morticia), Oscar Isaac (Gomez), Chloë Grace Moretz (Wednesday), Nick Kroll (Fester), Bette Midler (Grandma) and Snoop Dogg (It). Director Greg Tiernan has also returned for the sequel, which will be released in theaters October 8, 2021 via MGM’s United Artists Releasing banner.

OrangeAddFam2 Tiernan called it like this: “The success of last year’s animated film was proof of the enduring legacy of The Addams Family and its ability to transcend popular culture. This second film will be every bit as fun as the original. We are thrilled to welcome Bill Hader and Javon Walton, and to welcome back our incredible original cast for this exciting next chapter in the Addams’s journey.”

Plus, an Addams Family superfan will have the exciting and unique opportunity to voice a yet-to-be-named character in the film by entering The Addams Family Voice Challenge. The global voiceover contest runs from October 8th to November 4th in select markets. Interested applicants can visit www.AddamsVoiceChallenge.com to learn more about how to apply.

Everyone’s wacky spooky family is back in the new animated comedy sequel The Addams Family 2. In this all new movie, The Addams get tangled up in freaky adventures and find themselves involved in hilarious run-ins with all sorts of unsuspecting characters. Always staying true to themselves, the Addams Family brings their iconic spookiness and kookiness wherever they go. The film is produced by Gail Berman, Conrad Vernon, Danielle Sterling and Alison O’Brien. Executive Producers are Jonathan Glickman, Cassidy Lange and Andrew Mittman. Laura Brousseau and Kevin Pavlovic will serve as co-directors alongside Tiernan.

Now Back to Breaking Halloween Fake News…

That guy Bill Hader made the switch from being a master of impressions on Saturday Night Live to creating, directing, writing, producing and starring as a burned-out assassin trying to break into the LA theater scene in HBO’s Emmy® nominated series BARRY, which will return for its third season in 2021. He is also co-creator of IFC's Documentary Now! and spent eight seasons on Saturday Night Live, garnering four Emmy® Award nominations for his work on the series. Hader has starred in such films as Trainwreck, Superbad, Pineapple Express, Tropic Thunder and The Skeleton Twins. He most recently starred in the 2019 box office hit, It Chapter Two, the sequel to the 2017 horror film, It.
