Eddie Izzard (Valkyrie, Igor) is the first to be cast in NBC’s “Munsters” reboot as he’ll be moving into “Mockingbird Lane“ as Grandpa in the high profile pilot, reports TVLine.
The role was originated by Al Lewis in classic ’60s version.
The project, which was originally slated to go into production this month but got pushed back until early summer due to casting issues, is being stewarded by “Pushing Daisies” creator Bryan Fuller and X-Men auteur Bryan Singer. Whereas the original was a comedy, the remake is being billed by NBC as a “visually spectacular one hour drama.”
The project features striking visuals mixed with all the classic “Munsters” archetypes. Grandpa Sam Dracula is essentially Dracula who assembled Herman because no man was good enough for his daughter Lily, a sexy vamp. Lily’s niece Marilyn the freak is actually normal and Lily and Herman’s only child, Eddie, has his werewolf tendencies surface in puberty, forcing the family to relocate to their famous 1313 Mockingbird Lane address.
