The Addams Family 2 star Nick Kroll chats about leaning into Uncle Fester’s kooky ways and the fun family dynamics at play in the sequel.
The Addams Family 2 premieres in theaters and On Demand on October 1, and the anticipated sequel takes everyone’s favorite family on a road trip. The scheme is engineered by patriarch Gomez (Oscar Isaac, Dune), who worries that his beloved children are slipping away from him as they get older. This is especially true of eldest daughter Wednesday (Chloë Grace Moretz, Tom and Jerry), whose teenage angst is reaching a boiling point.
Wednesday’s troubles are actually linked to a potential family secret carried by Uncle Fester (Nick Kroll, Big Mouth), although how aware he is of his role in the proceedings is debatable. Regardless, he is always there for his loved ones, even when things get particularly weird. And they’re sure to get strange on this vacation, especially when some uninvited guests try to break the Addams family apart.
