Eddie Izzard is Grandpa Munster in "The Munsters" RebootSubmit Comment
TVLine has learned that Eddie Izzard (Valkyrie) has been cast as Grandpa Munster in NBC's upcoming "The Munsters" reboot, which is now being called "Mockingbird Lane."

Bryan Singer (Valkyrie, X-Men) will executive produce and is planning to direct the pilot episode. Bryan Fuller ("Pushing Daisies") ia also producing. The plan is to make a more serious and "visually spectacular" hourlong drama.

Grandpa Munster is a vampire and was originally played by Al Lewis in the classic 1960's show.

"The plan is to make a more serious and "visually spectacular" hourlong drama."

And they'll accomplish this task by using a television show featuring characters every bit as serious as Scooby Doo.

Can't wait for the more serious, more visually appealing, Mork and Mindy.

'Pushing Daisies'... is that a euphemism for Singer 'Tamping Turds!' (like we have to ask)?

What mink said. They're (trying) to turn a fab, fun 60's classic comedy into a 1-hour drama?

Who's the salesman that sells this sh*t to the studios, because they could sell ketchup popsicles to a woman in white gloves!

Nice casting of Eddie Izzard to play the after-dead vampire.

They'll save a fortune on make-up.

Zero interest in this.

Can they really not come up with anything remotely promising?
