Nevermind that the actor who played Willie Lopez in "Ghost" died in 1995.

Damn, that's a long time to be stupidly mistaken for another person. Luis was a working actor at the time, I never confused the two.

Huh. I was one of the ones who always thought it was him.

FTFA : "To this day, you and I could be walking through an airport, a mall - today - and someone would go, 'Why did you kill Patrick Swayze?' "

It was in the script?

It's 2022, do people still think that what they see in movies is real?

Have been and always will be a Luis Guzman fan, but he is HORRIBLY miscast as Gomez Addams.

Well, if you're expecting Raul Julia, then yeah.
But he did fine, and he looks WAY more like the original cartoon character.

In other news, Jason Segal looks like he hasn't aged a day since Fast Times at Ridgemont High and Beverly Hills Cop.

He had a turn on OG  Law and Order where he was a fire bug. Interesting article because there was the question of do we have the right to surgically remove evidence from a person.

Luis is the Rican Ron Perlman.

Loved the tv show when it was in reruns after school when I was a kid. It got me to check out the comics etc. Guzman is the perfect look for the original Gomez

No, you're way farking uglier. You'd make a good orc or something like that.

I used to think the same thing, then I got to the end of Ozark and if I ever meet Jason Bateman I'm going to ask him why he killed off the best character in the show.  Fark that guy.
/yeah yeah, his character didn't kill them, but he's also the writer and director for the series.

Other than the different sized chins, they are very alike.

Having met Guzmán a few times at various cons (mostly SDCC), I could see him having some fun with someone who asks him that.

Dude has a great sense of humor.

Yeah.  I'm shocked by how much I'm enjoying Wednesday as a whole, I have almost no complaints at all... but if I had one it would be that he's not good in that role AT ALL.

Fortunately, he's only really featured in one episode and barely appears in the other, so it's not like it ruins anything.
 
2022-11-30 8:43:47 AM  
He was great as the bartender in that Brock Landers movie.

I look at Luis Guzman and think a younger version could play goalie for the San Jose Sharks.

/he has that "Grant Fuhr" look
 
2022-11-30 9:05:28 AM  
huh...Mandela affect for me I guess.   Seeing them now it's quite obvious by honestly I haven't seen Ghost since probably '92 and didn't help that real actor died so soon afterwards
 
2022-11-30 9:27:35 AM  
I don't see the resemblance, but I still catch myself wondering what Huey Lewis is doing in Die Hard.

What do you mean the historical documents are not real?

Fred MacMurrary was w/ his wife and kids at Disneyland; most of his career, he was a good guy in Disney movies, but recently he had just done The Apartment, where he bullies his subordinate (Jack Lemmon) into lending his apartment so Fred can carry on an affair w/ Shirley McClain (great movie, FWIW). Some lady comes up to Fred, whacks him w/ her purse, "How dare you act that way! I took my children to that movie, it was disgusting!" Fred honestly took it to heart, he never played a villain ever again. Which is a shame, b/c Double Indemnity (all time classic) and The Apartment are great.

/this was all from an interview w/ his daughter years later

Been a big fan of his all the way back to House of Buggin'.
 
2022-11-30 1:13:08 PM  
Anytime he pops up in something I mark out, I'm a big Luis Guzman stan.
 
2022-11-30 1:14:25 PM  
I don't think they look anything alike.

I LOVED Guzman in The Count of Monte Cristo.

Not bad, for a slice of Wonder bread.

That's what I appreciated about Netflix's "Wednesday" series.  He looks like the Charles Addams' version of Gomez, not Raul Julia or John Astin.  I loved the Uncle Fester call back to the TV series.
