They are very big shoes to fill (literally).
Jerry O’Connell from Crossing Jordan and Sliders has landed the role of Herman Munster in the NBC reboot of The Munsters, TVLine reports. I guess Brad Garrett was busy?
Also cast are Eddie Izzard as Grandpa and Mason Cook as Eddie.
Mockingbird Lane, as it has been titled, is helmed by Pushing Daisies creator Bryan Fuller with the equally talented Bryan Singer set to direct. As has been previously reported, it will also shift tone from a goofy sitcom to a “visually spectacular one hour drama.”
The role of Herman Munster was originated by the wonderful Fred Gwynne and another cast once attempted to revive the family in The Munsters Today.
