monster Munster mash!!
Portia de Rossi — of the late and great Arrested Development — just inked a deal with NBC to star as Lily Munster in their remake of the classic ‘60s horror/comedy.
Munsters 2.0 will actually be titled Mockingbird Lane.
Show runner Bryan Fuller and director Bryan Singer promise this will be a darker and more macabre version than your parents watched on TV!!
Portia’s matriarchal Munster was originally meant to be played by Mariana Klaveno of True Blood infamy — but she couldn’t get released from the contract on her Marc Cherry Hallmark pilot!
Portia’s co-stars on Mockingbird Lane include Jerry O’Connell and Eddie Izzard, who will play Herman and Grandpa Munster respectively.
We LOVE the cast so far and we’re really curious to see where NBC ultimately goes with this idea!!

Looks as though it may very well be the end of the line for Nicollette Sheridan!
The actress had been attempting to secure a re-trial in her wrongful dismissal case against Desperate Housewives and its creator, Marc Cherry, but according to a ruling issued by the California Court of Appeals on Friday
The television series wrapped, but drama keeps flowing down Wysteria Lane!!
Nicolette Sheridan’s attorneys brought new documents to court today in the hopes of bolstering her wrongful termination retrial. Her first lawsuit against Touchstone, as you remember, ended in a hung jury.
This evidence apparently proves Sheridan was fired from Desperate Housewives because she whined to the network about show-runner Marc Cherry striking her in the head.
What the??? This sounds like a deleted scene from the show!!
Her attorney’s brief stated:
Still sexy after all these years!!
He asked about competition between Desperate Housewives cast members, killing off Nicolette Sheridan, and even the cheap parting gifts they handed out.
With the two-hour series finale only a few days away, we can finally get some truth about all this unpleasantness, right??
