Munsters from Mars

Rumors of The Munsters remake for NBC have been all over the internet for the past couple months.  Helming this project is Bryan Fuller, the man who made death cute with shows like Dead Like Me and Pushing Daisies.  Now don’t take that the wrong way, I really dug those shows.  The only other name attached at the moment is Kristen Bell of Veronica Mars fame as Marilyn.  Her I know nothing about so forgive my ignorance but Veronica Mars is like Buffy in space or something, right? Anyway… I figured why not let me cast The Munsters remake.

Eddie Munster – Bruce McCulloch

Herman Munster – Mark McKinney

Lily Munster – Dave Foley

Grandpa Munster – Kevin McDonald

And last but definitely not least, my ideal Marilyn – Scott Thompson

I guess you might have noticed a trend in my choices… they’re all male.  I’ve always been a fan of the Shakespearean method of casting.  Seriously though, its the cast of my favorite sketch comedy show The Kids In The Hall. Just hear me out, The Kids In The Hall had ties with Lorne Michaels, Lorne Michaels produced Saturday Night Live, Saturday Night Live is on NBC, The Munsters remake is going to air on NBC… so lets make it happen.

What? You think you can do better? Then leave your dream cast in the comments.

    I would love it if Veronica Mars was like Buffy in Space plus her vague Sherlock Holmes crime solving. If only there was a season 4 set in the future. Matt You’re clearly onto something. And not just with your fabulous casting.

    Grandpa, was Lily’s father and therefore wasn’t a Munster by name, i.e. “Grandpa Munster”. I believe his name was Sam Dracula or the like and there for his proper name would be Grandpa Dracula.
