Meet The New Grandpa Munster, Casting Kicks Off For 'Mockingbird Lane'

New postby zombie10 » Tue Mar 20, 2012 8:33 pm

Casting is now officially underway for NBC's upcoming Munsters reboot entitled Mockingbird Lane.

Brace yourself Bidites, it has just been confirmed that stand-up comedian,Eddie Izzard has been cast to take on the role of Grandpa Munster, a role which was original played by the late great Al Lewis. Izzard has appeared in such features like Ocean's Twelve(2004),Valkyrie, and will soon be appearing in the upcoming Snow White and the Hunstman. Thoughts on this - we'd love to hear 'em?

The reboot, which is set to be much darker than the original goofy-sitcom we all know and love, is being developed by Bryan Fuller and the pilot episode is set to be directed by Bryan Singer, Singer is also set to serve as an excutive producer for the show aswell.

Stay tuned for more casting announcements in the days to follow.

I adore Eddie Izzard beyond words, but in a comedic sense - if this reboot is supposed to be darker, I am unsure of how well the role would go for him. As it is, I remain none too pleased with the entire idea.
