Neuwirth played Lilith Sternin Crane on the TV sit-coms "Cheers" and "Frasier," and has starred in the Broadway revivals of "Chicago," "Damn Yankees" and "Sweet Charity."
The New York Post said Nathan Lane of "The Producers" fame has been offered the role of Gomez in the new "Addams Family" show inspired by Charles Addams' cartoons and sketches about an eccentric family.
Although a deal has not yet been signed, a source told the Post the part Lane was offered "is probably too good to pass up."
