NBC's Mocking Bird Lane (The Munsters) Begins Shooting

We're so excited for Bryan Singer's new show Mocking Bird Lane... & the cast is fabulous but we're a little concerned about casting Jerry O'Connell being cast as Herman Munster since let's face it lady, every pilot O'Connell touches turns to SH!T!


A reboot of The Munsters, it is intended to be written and executive produced by Fuller as a one-hour drama with "spectacular visuals". It is to explore the origins of the Munster family and to be darker and edgier, while retaining plenty of humor. It is reported that the costumes and make-up for the characters will be heavily toned down to resemble humans.

NBC confirmed ordering the pilot episode in November 2011, and announced in January 2012 that it would be called Mockingbird Lane, a reference to the Munster family address at 1313 Mockingbird Lane. It was also reported the costumes and make-up for the characters will be heavily toned down to resemble humans. NBC has recently taken the pilot for Mockingbird Lane out of the Fall 2012 schedule, reportedly to give it more attention, so production will begin in the summer, indicating that the pilot will air in 2013.

The Cast:

Jerry O'Connell as Herman Munster
Portia de Rossi as Lily Munster
Eddie Izzard as Grandpa (Sam Dracula)
Charity Wakefield as Marilyn Munster
Mason Cook as Eddie Munster
Beth Grant as Maryanne, the paraplegic, busybody neighbor who takes a very keen interest in the strange new family next door.
Cheyenne Jackson as Scout Master Steve, a widower and leader of Eddie's (Cook) scout troop who becomes smitten with Lily (de Rossi).

On March 20, 2012, former The Riches star Eddie Izzard was announced by NBC as "Grandpa", the first of the prospective series' main roles to be cast. More recently, British actress Charity Wakefield has joined the cast, playing Marilyn Munster, Lily's niece, and Spy Kids 4 actor Mason Cook as Eddie Munster. On June 4, 2012, it was announced that Jerry O'Connell has been cast as family patriarch Herman Munster who series writer-producer Bryan Fuller describes as "essentially a zombie in a constant state of decay." On June 5, it was announced that Mariana Klaveno has been cast to play his wife Lily, contingent on her being released from her contract on Devious Maids. However, on 12 June 2012, it was announced that Portia de Rossi would play the role.

  3. the owl city?? that would be New york but at least you spelt owl right. Holy Wood? isnt that a Marilin Manson album title?

  4. No, 143 am you're mistaken...Matt is friends with david furnish and will prodly innounce that....and then theres a silince and everyone goes "whooooo?" and he says "you know, Elton John's husband"

  5. wonder if he knows what hes in for, and by that I mean sodomy.

  6. He's much too old for Bryan's tastes.

  7. girlfriend knows. even from "nawlins," she knows. it's

  12. I love how when you're a film major, and you happen to know the right people to actually developed connections in the industry you become just twink hole. Meet Kenneth Rayes probably the most honest, caring person any of you sad individuals will never get to meet. Also, who cares if he is a furry by the way he doesn't get off on fur suits, he is an artist and its how he chooses to express himself. So insteat of berating someone you know absolutely nothing about, and some one you could only dream about being how about you all get lives. Seriously go out in to the world and be real human beings.

  13. A film major? At age 17... Please

  14. Funny because he is 19.

  15. Pleasethe least you people can do is get your basic facts right, you pull enough out of your butts as it is.

  16. Ha, best joke ever!!!! Thank you. . .



  17. Seriously you trolls...I happen to know Kenneth...and quite frankly he is above this nonsense. He is silly, artistic, fun loving guy. This was an experience for him to learn and grow from...you people twist things to your own agenda and that remark of him being the "HOLE" is down right ludicrous...get your facts straight and get off your pompous high horses.
