Eddie Izzard discuss grandpa role in Munsters reboot!!!

Eddie Izzard has been talking a lil about the forthcoming reboot of The Musters in which he act as a Grandpa Munster.

Stars Portia de Rossi and Jerry O’Connell are also the part of Munsters reboot.

"It's much more elegant," Izzard - who will play Grandpa Munster - told Entertainment Weekly. "It's twisted-dramatic that does hit comedic somewhere in there."

The comedian and actor encouraged viewers to "watch and see the humanity within monsters. They can see themselves reflected [back]. These sick and twisted parts… are part of all of our minds, and that is our life's work to control those things or push them aside."

The reboot, which has also been retitled as Mockingbird Lane, has been devised by Pushing Daisies creator Bryan Fuller, and also stars Donnie Darko’s Beth Grant and 30 Rock’s Cheyenne Jackson.

Actor and comedian is here in Cannes promoting RHI Entertainment 's new adaptation of Treasure Island, in which he plays Long John Silver, told C21 the new FX show was coming up to pilot.

He said, "It's about someone who was deep inside politics and has got pushed out of the world for erroneous reasons and now arranges things - one of those fixers behind the scenes. It's a political operative who's off the grid. It's someone from West Wing who went feral."

Izzard is planning to move in politics and in the coming years as the UK Labour party has put plans, came up with the idea for the as-yet untitled series.

He is now working with Doug Jung - co-creator of TNT's original drama Dark Blue and writer of HBO's Big Love - on the pilot.

Izzard said, "Most new projects tend to come up with no actual actor or star attached, so you can never quite tell from the outside how that'll work. But as I'm already attached to this and I'm a creator on it with Doug Jung, I have high hopes. I do think it can work very well and I'm in a very good place to do some very good drama now".

The Riches, Izzard's first FX/FTVS drama in which he starred as an Irish traveller con artist, ran to two seasons and came to an end in 2008.

"I had a great experience working with them last time," he said, and of the latest collaboration: "It's gone through the first hurdles and I know the high commands in both companies, so hopefully we can just keep moving through."

London mayor Boris Johnson in the capital's tube and rail travel for eight per cent increase in prices announced on previous week.

The pair were joined by Valerie Shawcross, London Assembly member, and Jeremy Corbyn, MP for Islington North at the station as they debut their Unfair campaign - asking the mayor to reverse his decision to increase prices.

Mr Izzard said: “Money is tight for everyone at the moment, so it is the wrong time for big fare increases, especially two per cent above inflation. Since Boris has been mayor, the prices has gone up 56 per cent for a single fare.

“That is why I am backing Ken for mayor - he’s a bit of a maverick and I am a maverick myself. People forget all the work Ken, and other people, did to get the Olympics here next year. Boris gets a lot of the credit.”

Mr. Izzard said the area was fond of memories.

“It’s nice to be back here. I used to play at the Red Rose Comedy Club on Seven Sisters Road. About 11 years ago, I played there one night then played at Wembley the next night. I did the same set both times.”
