Rob Zombie Adds an Original Munsters Cast Member to His Reboot


The cast for Rob Zombie‘s upcoming reboot of horror-comedy TV series The Munsters is definitely filling out — but in weird ways. He’s got Jorge Garcia from Lost playing a hunchbacked henchman; he’s got Cassandra “Elvira” Peterson playing a real estate agent;” he’s got E.T. star Dee Wallace portraying a Transylvanian morning show host — and now, Zombie’s even got an original cast member from The Munsters joining in on the fun!

Today, Dread Central reports that Pat Priest, who played Herman and Lily’s tragically-normal niece Marilyn Munster for the majority of the program, is joining the cast. Priest replaced Beverly Owen, who played the role in the pilot and the first fourteen episodes of the show, but who was apparently troubled by having to leave New York for the role.

You can find a picture of Pat working on her role in The Munsters below via the movie studio’s Instagram — which, by the looks of things, might be a narrator role? Maybe she’s just doing some dubbing.
