In case you've never seen The Munsters, here is a little taste of what the show was.

They're not your ordinary family, except for Marilyn of course. The Munsters was a sitcom that ran from 1964 to 1966. The purpose of the show was to poke fun at the idea of famous iconic monsters such as the Frankenstein monster, Dracula, the Wolf Man, and others acting as one big happy family in the normal world we live in. The show was a cult hit and I think now is the time to bring it back to life (pun intended.) Here are my casting choices to play the Munster family in a modern day film version!

Herman Munster

I have two choices for the goofy Frankenstein monster of a dad.

Ron Pearlman

Hellboy / Sons of Anarchy
Hellboy / Sons of Anarchy

Or...

Brad Garrett

Everybody Loves Raymond

Lilly Munster

Now to find someone to take on the mantle of the beautiful, stay at home mom of your nightmares:

Eva Green

Dark Shadows / Sin City: A Dame to Kill For
Dark Shadows / Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

Or...

Helena Bonham Carter

Sweeney Todd / Alice in Wonderland

Grandpa

He's the back bone to the family, known for being old and grouchy but also loving at the same time. Here's who I think should play the grandfather who might also suck your blood!

Nick Offerman

Parks and Recreation

Now if you're a fan of Parks and Recreation, then you know how brilliant Nick Offerman is with his comedic timing. He could add that extra piz azz to the film with his quick one liners and hilarious facial expressions. He even somewhat resembles a young Al Lewis.


Marilyn Munster

Strangely, Marilyn was the "odd" one out in her family due to her not looking like a creature of the night. Here are my two choices for the Munster family's niece!

Lily James

Cinderella

Or...

Chloe Grace Moretz

Kick-Ass / If I Stay
Kick-Ass / If I Stay


Eddie Munster

Little Eddie Munster is a smaller and less hairy version of the iconic character the Wolf Man. Here is my choice for who should play the little wolf boy on the big screen!

Jackson Nicoll

Fun Size / Bad Grandpa
Fun Size / Bad Grandpa

Known for a couple small comedy roles, Jackson is on the rise. This kid is hilarious and can definitely bring out Eddie's mischievous side brilliantly!


Tim Burton In The Director's Chair

If this film were to ever happen, then it has Tim Burton's name all over it. The Munsters is the perfect balance of comedy in a spooky way with a Gothic tone, which lines right up with Tim's style. Tim Burton is known for taking elements from his favorite, classic, monster movies and adding a touch of comedy with a new twist to them. The Munsters would be a perfect fit for the director's dark tone.
