I am so excited about one of my all-time favorite childhood shows coming back to the small screen. I’m not sure how well The Munsters is going to transition from campy comedy to hour long drama..but I’m totally in. I’m pretty stoked about Portia de Rossi as Lily Munster too.
And seriously…is there anyone else alive on this planet that could play Grandpa Munster as well as Eddie Izzard?? I think NOT.
Portia de Rossi has been cast as Lily Munster in NBC’s upcoming Munsters reboot Mockingbird Lane, TVGuide.com has confirmed. The 39-year-old actress will star alongside Jerry O’Connell, who plays her husband Herman Munster, Eddie Izzard as the quick-witted grandpa and Charity Wakefield as the family’s ”plain” cousin Marilyn. Mason Cook will play Herman’s werewolf son Eddie.
