Fred Armisen Joins Wednesday Making Fans Happier Than Ever

Fred Armisen’s comedy has been making fans laugh whenever we see him on screen or elsewhere. Whether it be his cameos in Brooklyn Nine-Nine, his skits in Saturday Night Live , or the various other roles he has played, Armisen never fails to leave a trail of laughter behind.

Being cast on Wednesday, his look is completely unrecognizable, with prosthetics and makeup turning him into a new person altogether.

“They really did such a great job with the makeup and everything. I had no eyebrows. It was prosthetics over my eyebrows to give me that look. But I think that bald caps don’t look great all the time, so I was hoping to just make it that much more convincing.”

Rumors of the role of Fester had been circulating for a long time, and speculations of Johnny Depp being casted in the role were also being made, however, that is not the case as Fred Armisen is Fester on Wednesday. Wednesday and Fester are meant to team up against the foes they would be facing in the show, while the latter also would seem to be on the run from something.

Ever since the trailer was released, the fans have been overjoyed with the news of the casting. Stating that they could not have found anyone better.
