They’re creepy, they’re kooky, and they’re back on the big screen! The Addams Family hits theaters on October 11. Finn Wolfhard is the latest actor to play Pugsley, a mischievous boy with a knack for engineering.

The star of Stranger Things is no stranger to spooky stories. But this marks his first voice acting role for a movie. “I got to let loose in the voice booth. I got to scream in a contained environment,” Finn says. “It was fun being more eccentric.”
