Mockingbird Lane Casts Herman Munster

Bryan Fuller's "Munsters" reboot, titled "Mockingbird Lane," has found its Herman Munster in Jerry O'Connell. Fresh off of "The Defenders" and "Pirahna," Jerry will play the bumbling father. Mason Cook has been cast as Eddie and Eddie Izzard will play the Grandpa, while Lily has not yet been cast. Bryan Fuller wants his version of the show to be more magical and described it as "an 'American Horror Story' that the whole family can watch."

Fuller's previous works include "Dead Like Me" and "Pushing Daisies." He's wonderful at combining mind-bending elements and visually lush scenery with dark introspection. The show will hit NBC as part of the January schedule.
