Casting News: NBC Pilot Finds Its Eddie Munster, Jersey Exit for Stephanie March and More
NBC’s Mockingbird Lane pilot has found its Eddie Munster.
Mason Cook (Spy Kids in 4D, The Middle) has landed the coveted role in writer/executive producer Bryan Fuller’s reboot of The Munsters, our sister site Deadline reports.
Cook will play Lily and Herman’s only child, an earnest Boy Scout and budding werewolf, in what is being described by NBC as a “visually spectacular one-hour drama” about a family of “monsters.” He joins the previously cast Eddie Izzard (The Riches) as Grandpa and newcomer Charity Wakefield as Lily’s beautiful niece and the only “normal” Munster, Marilyn.
