Rob Zombie is drawing from the original 1960s series for his The Munsters reboot movie. Per Variety, the director has cast Butch Patrick as the Tin Man Can. Patrick starred as young Eddie Munster in the original comedy series.
The movie’s cast already features Jeff Daniel Phillips as Herman Munster, Sheri Moon Zombie as Lily Munster, Daniel Roebuck as Grandpa, Catherine Schell, Jorge Garcia, Sylvester McCoy, Richard Brake, and Cassandra Petersen (a.k.a. Elvira), as real estate agent Barbara Carr.
In the original Munsters series, which aired from 1964 to 1966, Tin Can Man was a robot that Eddie built for a science fair. Zombie shared a photo and more details about Patrick’s casting on Instagram.
