I have to admit, I really thought Bryant Fuller’s “Munsters” reboot (since re-titled “Mockingbird Lane”) would look, I don’t know, more “Munsters”-like. Except for the cousin Marilyn character, who looks exactly like the original girl from the TV show, the rest of the cast is kinda … different. I also don’t get casting Jerry O’Connell as Frankenstein’s Monster. But hey, these are just images from the pilot (now Halloween TV show special), so the footage themselves might be more convincing and appropriate, I guess.
We’ll just have to see when the TV special airs later this month on October 26th on NBC. Until then, check out a fresh batch of images featuring all the main characters from “Mockingbird Lane” all dressed up with no place to go. Well, that’s not exactly true. They have Halloween to look forward to. After that, they’ll have no place to go, with Fuller already having moved on to his “Hannibal” TV show. Even he knows a sinking ship when he sees it, apparently.
The pilot/TV special was directed by Bryan Singer (no relation to Bryan Fuller, heh), and stars Jerry O’Connell as Herman Munster, Portia de Rossi as his wife Lily, Eddie Izzard as Grandpa, Mason Cook as Eddie and Charity Wakefield as Marilyn.
