Smallscreen regular Jerry O’Connell (“Sliders”, “My Secret Identity”, “The Defenders”) will play Herman Munster on NBC’s reboot of “The Munsters”, “Mockingbird Lane”.

The pilot, written by Bryan Fuller and to be directed by “Superman Returns”‘ Bryan Singer, has also hired Eddie Izzard and Charity Wakefield.

Deadline says, “O’Connell will play family patriarch, the handsome and gangly Herman Munster, a great dad and devoted husband. He is married to Lily, a vampire, with whom he has fathered a 10-year-old boy, Eddie (Mason Cook). Strong but sentimental, Herman works at a funeral home, and worries that Eddie’s transformation into a werewolf and burgeoning awareness of his family’s origins will crush the boy’s spirit. Fred Gwynne played the role in the original Munsters sitcom. Izzard plays Grandpa in the reboot.”

Clint reviewed the script for the pilot episode of “Mockingbird Lane” a couple of months ago, you can learn more about O’Connell’s character in that.
