Butch Patrick, who played Eddie Munster in the original Munsters series back in the 1960s, will be appearing in Rob Zombie’s The Munsters! The actor will play the Tin Can Man, a character created by Eddie and Grandpa in the show.
“I am thrilled to have another original Munster in my new film,” Zombie wrote on Instagram. “Get ready for some robot fun!”
Patrick joins his original series co-star Pat Priest in the upcoming film, which Zombie both wrote and directed. The cast also includes Jeff Daniel Phillips, Sheri Moon Zombie, Daniel Roebuck, Richard Brake, Catherine Schell, Cassandra “Elvira” Peterson, Jorge Garcia, Sylvester McCoy, and Dee Wallace.
The Munsters is slated to release sometime in 2022.
