Happy Birthday, John Astin!
John Astin was born on March 30, 1930, in Baltimore, Maryland. Over his career he has appeared in numerous films and TV shows, and also performed in the one-man play, Edgar Allan Poe: Once Upon a Midnight, but for me, he will forever be Gomez Addams from The Addams Family television series (1964-1966).
With his wild eyes, his wickedly gleeful grin, and his irrepressible exuberance, John Astin's, Gomez, was the perfect foil for the elegant restraint of his beautiful wife, Morticia, played by Carolyn Jones.
A very Happy Birthday to you, Mr Astin!
