Eddie Izzard Takes A Break From Comedy To Meet With Syria's Child Refugees

Filed under: AnglophiliaPolitikSad Sad

Eddie Izzard is known for being one of the funniest comedians, not only in England, but in the world!

Just because he knows how to tickle some funny bones - that doesn't mean life is all giggles for him!

He proved that point when he went to Syria to meet with some of the child refugees over there, and what he found was just heartbreaking!

We cannot believe the squalid conditions these CHILDREN are forced to survive through, and it's just awful that these kids have been put in such a desperate situation!

We're glad to see this man bring awareness to a place that so desperately needs it.

Check out the video of Eddie Izzard's investigative report by clicking PLAY (above) !!!

mockingbird-lane stills munsters pilot halloween nbc jerry oconnell portia derossi

Hold us, we're afraid!

NBC released the first batch of stills for Mockingbird Lane and we're soooo confident the pictures will be terrifying that we've buried our head in our hands!!

Okay, maybe we'll sneak just one peek…

What the…? We thought Mockingbird Lane was a scurrrrry reboot of the classic '60s sitcom, The Munsters!?

This family is CUTE!

Jerry O'Connell and Portia de Rossi are adorbzies as a couple, though something tells us they won't fall in love off screen, LOLz!

And Eddie Izzard should be a fantastic choice to play Grandpa Munster!

Mockingbird Lane premieres October 26 — just in time for Halloween!

Check out more stills from the pilot (below)!

There's more to the United Kingdom than the 2012 London Olympics and mad cow disease!!

Lily Allen Rose Cooper, for instance!

And the Edinburgh Fringe Fest!!

Fringe Fest is supposedly the world's largest arts festival with over 22,000 performers who will put on all sorts of wonderful shows over the next three weeks!

Jerry OConnell Portia De Rossi And Eddie Izzard in The Munsters

It was a Munster mash at Comic-Con 2012!

Fuller spoke to the Comic Con panel about his goals for the pilot. He said:

Portia De Rossi Gets Her Spook On With Munsters Re-Boot

Portia De Rossi -- With Ellen -- Is Mama Munster

It's a 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.

We bet she and Ellen are having SUPER celebratory cuddles in their $18 mil Beverly Hills mansion right now, LOLz!!

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!

Yup! The same Mark Cherry entangled in that lengthy legal drama with Nicollette Sheridan over her Desperate Housewives departure!!

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 like this reboot is sticking with the Brits so far!

As we've reported, NBC is busy remaking the '60s series of The Munsters, now called Mockingbird Lane, with Bryan Fuller serving as the writer, Bryan Singer in the director's seat, and Eddie Izzard in the role of the blood-sucking, shape-shifting Grandpa!
