Everyone’s favorite spooky family is back in the new animated comedy sequel The Addams Family 2. In this all-new movie, The Addams get tangled up in wacky adventures and find themselves involved in hilarious run-ins with all sorts of unsuspecting characters. Always staying true to themselves, the Addams Family brings their iconic spookiness and kookiness wherever they go. The film is produced by Gail Berman, Conrad Vernon, Danielle Sterling, and Alison O’Brien. Executive Producers are Jonathan Glickman, Cassidy Lange, and Andrew Mittman. Laura Brousseau and Kevin Pavlovic will serve as co-directors alongside Tiernan.

Bill Hader made the switch from being a master of impressions on Saturday Night Live to creating, directing, writing, producing, and starring as a burned-out assassin trying to break into the LA theater scene in HBO’s Emmy® nominated series BARRY, which will return for its third season in 2021. He is also co-creator of IFC’s Documentary Now! and spent eight seasons on Saturday Night Live, garnering four Emmy® Award nominations for his work on the series. Hader has starred in such films as Trainwreck, Superbad, Pineapple Express, Tropic Thunder, and The Skeleton Twins. He most recently starred in the 2019 box office hit, It Chapter Two, the sequel to the 2017 horror film, It.

I'm the Sr. Film Writer and Community Manager for tmc.io. I write, direct and produce short films with my production company, Good Stew Productions. I'm now working on my first feature film which is a lot of work but a lot of fun! Though it's hard to answer this questions when asked, I'd say my favorite movie is “The Big Chill.” I enjoy photography, poetry, and hiking and I adore animals, especially elephants. I live in Arizona and feel it's an outstanding and inspirational place to live.
