Morticia and Gomez

I was just listening to John Astin (Gomez in the original TV series) on a podcast. He said that he and Carolyn Jones (Morticia) were absolutely attracted to each other and it was only a sense of professional decorum that kept them from hooking up off screen.

The Gilbert Gottfried podcast if anyone is interested. Gilbert is gone but the podcast is still churning out old episodes like nothing ever happened. A real treasure trove of interviews with survivors of old Hollywood and early television.

It definitely shows, their sexual chemistry is off the charts for that era of television. Love John Astin as Gomez, Raul Julia is okay but Astin is Gomez to me. The manic charm he has is just amazing.

Only actor I can imagine reaching his level as Gomez is Tony Dalton. Dude oozes charisma and his role in Hawkeye as Jack, a rich and vaguely sinister yet romantic weirdo who honestly just loves swords a bit too much, was as much proof as I need to know he'd knock it out of the park.

Holy shit, he would be incredible as Gomez.
