Eddie Izzard eyes ‘Munsters’ role as Grandpa

Eddie Izzard is in final negotiations to co-star in NBC’s Munsters reboot.

The comic actor will costar and have a producer’s credit on writer-producer Bryan Fuller’s dramatic revamp of the campy classic sitcom, which is now titled Mockingbird Lane. Izzard, who’s been circling the role for weeks, will play the ancient vampire and shape-shifter Grandpa in the show. Bryan Singer will direct.

The pilot project was pushed back from spring to summer as production partners focused on improving the show’s creative aspects. Fuller’s other NBC drama pilot Hannibal, a small-screen take on the Hannibal Lecter films, has been going full steam ahead.
