According to Deadline, Eddie Izzard (pictured right) is currently in final negotiations to star in and produce NBC’s Mockingbird Lane.
“Izzard will play Grandpa, the Munster family patriarch, a powerful, ancient vampire with an irrepressible twinkle in his eye. He can shapeshift into rats, wolves, and other creatures at will, but he’s also dapper and charming in a fedora; he is a Don Juan-type womanized with penchant for flashy, sexy outfits.”
Mockingbird Lane is a reinvention of the 1960s sitcom about a family of “monsters” that has striking visuals. The pilot episode is written & directed by Bryan Singer.
