“PEDRO PASCAL AS GOMEZ ADDAMS PLEASE BEGIN,” says another fan, emphasizing the clear desire to see the dream casting with all caps.
“I keep seeing it floating around in the FB, and I have to agree,” tweeted another Pascal fan. “‘I have to ask you to think about it Pedro Pascalas Gomez Addams !! ‘We know he can do drama and comedy. All that is left is fencing and dancing the Mamuschka! “
