Portia de Rossi cast as ‘Lily Munster’
Aussie Portia De Rossi has been cast as Lily Munster in NBC's Munsters remake, Mockingbird Lane.
She will play the role created by the very classy Yvonne De Carlo, and opposite the new-look ‘Herman Munster’, Jerry O’Connell.
The former Arrested Development and Better Off Ted star completes the principal cast, which also includes Eddie Izzard as Grandpa, Mason Cook as son Eddie, and newcomer Charity Wakefield as Marilyn, the family’s shameful “plain” cousin.
The NBC reboot shifts from sitcom to a darker drama, written by Bryan Fuller (Pushing Daisies) and directed by Bryan Singer (House).
Reports indicate the series will explore the origins of Herman and Lily and how they arrived at 1313 Mockingbird.
