PICS: The Main Cast For The Munsters Reboot, Mockingbird Lane, Are In Place

There’s a new TV series coming that combines the talents of writer Bryan Fuller and director Bryan Singer, at least as far as the pilot goes. My excitement for this can only be tempered so much by the baffling fact that it’s a reboot of The Munsters.

We’ve talked a little about this show, retitled Mockingbird Lane, in the past, but as the Bryans have now locked down their full main cast, I think we should catch up on who will be who, and where pictures are available, what they will look like.

First to be announced was Eddie Izzard as Grandpa Munster. We’re yet to see the makeup – assuming that there will be makeup – but Fuller did tweet this image of a costume fitting.

Next on board was Charity Wakefield. I… sort of know Charity. Or knew. I was something of a cinema quiz champ, in Oxford, for a while. I lost one time, though. The time I didn’t play by myself but teamed up with Charity. No hard feelings though, of course. Even though I do seem to mention this smudge on my record at every available opportunity. Let me put that story to bed once and for all now. There. I’m over it.

Charity really loves films and really thinks they deserve respect, and for that, I’ll always be a fan. The fact that she was brilliant in the Andrew Davies version of Sense and Sensibility is just a bonus. Here’s a picture that Fuller tweeted of her in full costume as Marilyn, the “plain cousin” to the Munsters.

Mason Cook was cast as Eddie, the only child of Lily and Herman Munster. No picture of him yet. And sadly, no picture of Jerry O’Connell as Herman, but what an absolutely stunning piece of casting. I was perplexed as to who they’d opt for, and when I finally read that O’Connell had the gig, I actually laughed out loud. Superb.

And the final piece of the puzzle, slotted into place today, was the casting of Portia De Rossi as Lily. Again, no picture as yet but cameras are rolling now so I dare say we’ll be teased with something soon.
