Munster“Pushing Daisies” creator Bryan Fuller is spearheading the return of The Munsters back to Mocking Lane, and NBC has confirmed its Herman Munster.


TV veteran and former child star Jerry O’Connell has been cast as Herman Munster in “Mockingbird Lane,” the NBC reboot of the 1960′s sitcom, “The Munsters.”


He is joined by Eddie Izzard as Grandpa and Mason Cook as Eddie. According to Margaret Lyons of Vulture, Mockingbird‘s a tough show to cast: In the pilot script, the tone is both spooky and melancholy, and any moment is as likely to be sardonic as it is to be legitimately scary.


Apparently this casting has been meet with skepticism because in this version, Herman Munster has a serious sad streak and O’Connell is known for being more of a funny guy. So, this ought to be interesting.
