And Your New Herman Munster Is: Jerry O’Connell

Jerry O’Connell will play Herman Munster in NBC’s new “Munsters” reboot, which will be called “Mockingbird Lane”.

(That’s a reference to the Munsters’ address, 1313 Mockingbird Lane.)

Eddie Izzard will play Herman’s father-in-law, Grandpa Munster. There’s no word who’ll play Herman’s wife Lily.

But their son Eddie will be played by a young kid you’ve never heard of named Mason Cook. (He was in “Spy Kids 4″ if that matters to you.)

For those of you who don’t remember “The Munsters”, Herman is basically the Frankenstein Monster, Grandpa and his daughter Lily are vampires and young Eddie is a werewolf.

There’s also a niece named Marilyn, who’s a normal, attractive human…a.k.a. “the white sheep of the family.” There’s no word who’s playing her, either.

Bryan Singer is producing, and he’ll direct the pilot. He also directed “The Usual Suspects”, the first two “X-Men” movies and “Superman Returns”.

This will be a, quote, “edgier and slightly darker take” on the original sitcom, which ran from 1964 to 1966.
