    According to John Astin, during his first meeting with Filmways executives concerning his possible participation in the show (with executive producer David Levy in attendance), he was originally offered the role of the Butler (Lurch), being told that the show would be centered around this character. Astin left this initial meeting with many reservations, wondering if he would have to wear stilts/lifts to portray this character, etc., and finally convinced himself that this part was just not going to work for him. The very next day, he received a call directly from Levy (who, according to Astin, had said little during the previous days' meeting), inviting him to lunch at a popular Hollywood restaurant. Over lunch, after expressing his doubts about playing the butler to Levy, Levy then offered him the role of Gomez; Astin accepted, and the focus of the show was changed.
