THR reports that Jerry O'Connell has a new address: 1313 Mockingbird Lane. The former Defenders star has been cast as Herman Munster in Mockingbird Lane, NBC's reboot of 1960s sitcom The Munsters. In the reboot, family patriarch Herman — as in the 1964-66 CBS series — has a permanent home under Grandpa Munster's thumb. O'Connell joins the previously cast Eddie Izzard, who will play the powerful and quick-witted vampire in a role that was originated by Al Lewis.
