Jimmy’s Acting Career
Jimmy’s career began in 1991, when at the age of 11 he was cast for the role of Pugsley in Barry Sonnenfeld’s black comedy fantasy movie “The Addams Family”. He starred as the ‘devious, young, brilliant boy’ – the son and the oldest child of Morticia and Gomez Addams. The plot is based on Charles Addam’s cartoons and the eponymous black-and-white TV series from the 1960s, and follows the adventures of an unusual family with supernatural abilities, ‘macabre interest’ and with a ‘culture clash with the rest of the world’.
The film was a genuine commercial success, grossing over $190 million at the box office, and earning nominations for BAFTA Award, Golden Globe as well as an Oscar. Certainly, these accomplishments helped young Jimmy to thrive in his career.
Later that year he appeared in M.C. Hammer’s music video “Addams Groove”, which served as the movie’s theme song, after which he made his small screen debut in an episode of the TV series “Jake and the Fatman”. In 1992 Jimmy appeared in the TV movie “Christmas in Connecticut”, while in 1993 he reprised his role of Pugsley in the “The Addams Family” spin-off movie “Addams Family Values”.

Family’s legal issues
In November 2012, the court granted custody of then 15 year old Ariel to her elder sister Shanelle, after alleged accusations that their mother acted abusively towards Winter.
In August 2013, Jimmy petitioned on behalf of their mother, asking for Ariel’s custody, stating that Shanelle is a poor role model and is exploiting young Winter to promote herself, using her “Modern Family” earnings to maintain her own lavish lifestyle. A year later, it was settled that Shannele retains temporary custody over Ariel ’til she is 18, with their father monitoring Ariel’s finances.
