Astin Starring In "Bluff" At Boarshead Theatre

LANSING, MI – John Astin has been a star since he brought the character of Gomez Addams to life on the 60's TV show "The Addams Family."

His lengthy resume has branched off from the stage and screen to the classroom in recent years. He's on the faculty at his alma mater, Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, helping shape the school's theater program.

Astin is in Lansing to perform in "Bluff" Wednesday night through July 26th at the BoarsHead Theatre.

He spoke with WKAR's Scott Pohl about the play, in which he reprises a role he's played before, along with his "Addams Family" legacy.
