Wednesday’s Jenna Ortega & Luis Guzmán Eat Mexican & Puerto Rican Food | Taste Buds | Netflix

Smart, sarcastic and a little dead inside, Wednesday Addams investigates a murder spree while making new friends — and foes — at Nevermore Academy.



  1. I don't get why this guy cast as gomez, he doesn't look anything like gomez addams but more like fester and why the hell is he so much shorter and fatter than morticia, like wtf?! In the original and later addams family, gomez was slim and definitely not a ugly. Apart from the stupid cartoon. Ridiculous.

  2. Hey Jenna! let me know when you come around Philly so you can try my vegan Peruvian papa rellena.. Super yummy!..

  3. Luis Guzman is a great actor. He needs to be interviewed on every show, which hasn't happened yet, he is being ignored which happens to many Puerto Rican actors. Luis Guzman needs to become a household name. He has been in over 200 movies but Hollywood refuses to recognize him. Let's start a hashtag in Luis Guzman's name.

  4. He is RICARDO DIAZ! Jesus, I haven’t watched the tv show but recognized his voice right away.

  5. Loved it !!! I’m sure I’ll be watching it a few more times it’s very entertaining.❤ N this only makes me prouder of being Boricua 🇵🇷🇵🇷🇵🇷❤️

  6. She’s more Mexican tho . She from Cali. That’s why she chose tacos. Her mom is half Mexican and half puerto rica. Her dad is full Mexican so that makes her 75% Mexican. In all her interviews you can tell she grew up with her Mexican side

  7. Como mexicana me atrevo a decir que Luis hizo un trabajo fenomenal representando a un padre latino, se siente muy familiar su aspecto y también su forma de tratar a Merlina, muy buen trabajo de parte de ambos actores

  8. The cast has to fit the part…being Latino has nothing to do with it. Tired of everybody thinking race and color is so important. Jesus was brown, MLK was black, Lincoln and Washington were white. Great people come in all colors and flavors.

  9. Nice work on Netflix I like the food I like couples movies from Luis Guzmán and the girl to keep the good work

  10. I love this, and I love the show! I grew up watching the original Addams Family in reruns on TV. You are all crushing it! ❤️

  11. I love your show.. all of you did a wonderful job… I’m not Puerto Rican but I love arroz con gandules ( my Puerto Rican friend thought me to cook it) so good

  12. Ok, Ok I absolutely loved both of you in Wednesday!
    I really hope that Wednesday was not just a one season show. Will there be a season two of Wednesday?
    I really hope so because I binged watched the whole first season of Wednesday in one weekend….
    Please let there be another season 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

  13. I loved this guy in every movie he has been in but he does not fot the roll of Gomez. I didn't like the cast for Morticia either. Jenna does a great Wednesday but the series (first season) would have been much better if it hadn't gone so "Nancy Drew" with it. Wednesday in a "Nancy Drew" roll just doesn't fit the history and narrative that made The Addams family what it is today.

  14. Happy and proud to see Latinos in lead roles, I’m Mexi-Rican myself and love our food and cultures on both sides

  15. Boriqua de Pura sepa!!!! Those dishes looked fantastic especially the rice and beans with the chulets!!!!

  16. I love his advice to her

    “Stay humble.”

    I felt that. Like usually for these sorta interviews they would be spewing a long list of wise words which is a whole lot of nothing. But. I felt his words.

  17. Latinos are well repped in the movies, due in large part to Salma, imo. Could there be more? Sure. The alphabet community has too much pop right now, but it’ll come back.
    Right here. Always been. Always will be.
