It looks like the Munsters cast for the Rob Zombie Munsters movie has found itself another member! This time though, this addition to the Munsters cast involves an original Munsters cast member from the 1960s TV show.
Per an Instagram post shared by Mirror Studios, it looks like Pat Priest – who played Marilyn Munster – will be part of the Rob Zombie Munsters movie.
Per the caption associated with the Mirror Studios Instagram post:
“While working on Rob Zombie’s upcoming release of The Munsters we had the good fortune of working with the one and only Pat Priest.

When you compare Marilyn Munster to the rest of the Munster family… you may notice a difference or two. When it comes to Marilyn’s character, she is the daughter of Lily Munster’s sister (making her Lily’s niece). Herman Munster, Lily’s husband, has commented that Marilyn’s “plain” looks are due to coming from Lily’s side of the family.
As to what involvement Pat Priest will have as part of the Munsters cast in regards to the Rob Zombie Munsters movie – we’ll have to wait in see. Pat Priest is part of what is already an incredible array of actors who make up the Rob Zombie Munsters cast.
Some of the other actors in Rob Zombie’s Munsters movie involve: Daniel Phillips (playing Herman Munster), Sheri Moon Zombie (Lily Munster), Catherine Schell (Zoya Krupp), Dan Roebuck (Grandpa Munster), Jorge Garcia (Floop), Sylvester McCoy (Igor), Cassandra Peterson (Barbara Carr), and Richard Brake (Dr. Henry Augustus Wolfgang).
At the time of this writing, we still do not have a release date for the Munsters movie, nor a trailer. That said, Zombie has been sharing plenty of behind the scenes details with fans. You can find links to some of those behind the scenes teases from Zombie via the links below.
