TV: Scouts Honor, NBC Casts Eddie Munster For ‘Mockingbird Lane’

It’s been so long since they started casting I completely forgot this project was even happening, but NBC has another moving into Mockingbird Lane.”

Deadline reports that young actor Mason Cook (pictured inside; Spy Kids In 4D) is set to co-star opposite Eddie Izzard and Charity Wakefield in NBC’s “Munsters” reboot “Mockingbird Lane.”

The pilot, written by Bryan Fuller and to be directed by Bryan Singer, is described as a reinvention of the 1960s sitcom about The Munsters, a family of “monsters” — vampires, werewolves and Frankenstein, and their “plain” cousin (Wakefield) — that will feature striking visuals in the vein of Fuller’s ABC dramedy “Pushing Daisies.”

Cook will play Eddie Munster, Lily and Herman’s only child, an earnest boy scout and budding werewolf. Horrified to learn the truth about himself, he refuses to eat meat and faces off against Grandpa (Izzard) at dinner.
