New Munsters YouTube Channel Coming From Eddie Actor Butch Patrick

Published

on

Eddie Munster actor Butch Patrick announces a new YouTube channel, All Things Munsters, to share his personal experiences and fan appreciation.

The Munsters star Butch Patrick announces a new YouTube channel titled “All Things Munsters” to capture his travels and fan appreciation. Patrick is an American actor best known for portraying a werewolfish young boy, Eddie Munster, in the 1960s American sitcom The Munsters. The series first premiered in 1962 and ran through 1966, and follows a family of benign monsters. The show received positive reception and succeeded in building up a dedicated fanbase. Its popularity spurred The Munsters film series, as well as several spin-off TV series.

Most recently, interest in The Munsters was renewed when it was announced that Rob Zombie was developing a film adaptation of The Munsters. Zombie, a lifelong fan of the show, has been seeking to make a feature-length film based on the series for years. Now, the project has become a reality with The Munsters set to premiere on September 27, 2022. The film will serve as a prequel to the 1960s series and will examine the origins of The Munsters‘ characters. Jeff Daniel Phillips, Sheri Moon Zombie, Daniel Roebuck, Sylvester McCoy, and Richard Brake are all set to star in the film.

In light of the recent Zombie movie news, Patrick launched his new YouTube channel, All Things Munsters. In his announcement video, Patrick explained that, since his time on The Munsters, he has spent his life traveling the world and has been joined by his fans every step of the way. Now, he wants to share his experience, fan appreciation and memories, and his present and future travels with viewers. Patrick invited fans to come along on his journey as he shares memories of all the people that made The Munsters possible. Check out his video below:

Even after all these years, The Munsters does still boast a large fanbase and this is one aspect that will be explored on Patrick’s channel. Not only that, but it is very special that Patrick is making sure the show’s legacy lives on. Sadly, apart from Pat Priest, Patrick is one of the few surviving original stars of The Munsters. This means his new channel is one of the few sources able to provide a firsthand account of what it was like working on the show. While there is bound to be excitement over Zombie’s new film, it is encouraging that Patrick is making sure fans also remember and celebrate where The Munsters all began.


Patrick was roughly 11 years old when he first began acting on The Munsters. Now, almost six decades later, he’s sharing his journey from his time on the show to the present. As he stated, he has had the opportunity to travel the world and meet countless fans along the way. The number of stories and memories he has accumulated over the decades, as well as the fan stories of what The Munsters means to them, are likely limitless. Patrick is capturing just how long-lived the legacy of a TV series can be as he creates a new YouTube channel wholly dedicated to The Munsters.

‘Cobra Kai’ Season 5: Mike Barnes Is Back in First-Look Photos

Published

on

Netflix is pulling back the curtain on the fifth season of “Cobra Kai,” releasing a batch of first-look images for the “Karate Kid” sequel series’ new episodes.

The new material provides “Cobra Kai” fans a hint of the events of the upcoming season, which will see Cobra Kai plan to expand its dojo across the San Fernando Valley, under the total control of Terry Silver (Thomas Ian Griffith). Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) will need to recruit some new and familiar faces to combat the takeover.

Among that group of familiar faces is actor Sean Kanan, who is reprising his role as Mike Barnes from “The Karate Kid III.” The details around how Barnes resurfaces in “Cobra Kai” remain unknown.

“Cobra Kai” follows the lives of Daniel and Johnny more than 30 years after the events of the ’80s “Karate Kid” franchise. When the two decide to open competing dojos, they reignite their old rivalry from high school. Now, they’re aligned against Silver, who’s taken over Cobra Kai from Martin Kove’s villain John Kreese.

Other stars from the original franchise who reprise their roles in “Cobra Kai” include Randee Heller as Lucille LaRusso and Yuji Okumoto as Chozen Toguchi. Tanner Buchanan, Xolo Maridueña, Mary Mouser, Courtney Henggeler, Jacob Bertrand, Peyton List and Vanessa Rubio also star in the series.

“Cobra Kai” first premiered as a YouTube Premium original series in 2018, but was later acquired by Netflix in 2020 after YouTube stopped producing original scripted content. Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg are the series creators and executive produce through Counterbalance Entertainment. Ralph Macchio and William Zabka also serve as executive producers, along with Will Smith, James Lassiter, Caleeb Pinkett and Susan Ekins. The series is produced by Sony Pictures Television.

“Cobra Kai” Season 5 will debut on Netflix on Sept. 9.

Jason Momoa Gets Brutally Honest About Conan The Barbarian Remake

Published

on

Jason Momoa gets brutally honest about his Conan the Barbarian remake, praising his experience but feeling it was turned into a “big pile of s–t.”

While audiences have largely moved on from the project, Jason Momoa is getting brutally honest about his Conan the Barbarian remake. Robert E. Howard’s iconic titular character was first brought to life on the big screen with Arnold Schwarzenegger’s 1982 film of the same name, which saw his Conan on a quest for vengeance for the death of his parents at the hands of snake cult leader Thulsa Doom. Though met with mixed reviews from critics and audiences alike upon its release, Schwarzenegger’s Conan the Barbarian was a box office success and became a cult favorite, spawning the sequel Conan the Destroyer, which scored poor reviews and underperformed at the box office, leading to a threequel dying in development hell.

SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

Warner Bros. later acquired the rights to the Conan the Barbarian character and spent years attempting to develop a remake, only for Nu Image/Millennium Films to later acquire the rights and partner with Lionsgate to produce it. Having endured a variety of directors and writers coming and going on the project, the Conan the Barbarian remake began moving forward with Marcus Nispel in the director’s chair and Jason Momoa attached for the titular role. Hitting theaters in mid-2011, Momoa’s Conan the Barbarian debuted to mostly negative reviews from critics and audiences alike and was a box office bomb, scrapping plans for a follow-up and now one of the stars at the center of the project is getting honest about the film.


In a recent cover feature with GQ, Jason Momoa reflected on some of his lesser-received films from early in his acting career. Momoa specifically looked towards his time on the Conan the Barbarian remake, praising his experiencing filming it but criticizing how it was changed in the editing process. See what Momoa said below:

“I’ve been a part of a lot of things that really sucked, and movies where it’s out of your hands. Conan [the Barbarian] was one of them. It’s one of the best experiences I had and it [was] taken over and turned into a big pile of shit.”

As is the case for a variety of other remakes in Hollywood, Momoa’s Conan the Barbarian endured a variety of troubles in its development, with the likes of The Matrix duo The Wachowskis, Schwarzenegger’s first Conan director John Milius, Robert Rodriguez and Brett Ratner all having been in various points of negotiations to helm the project. With it having been one of his first major film roles after breakout TV roles in Baywatch and Stargate: Atlantis, Momoa memorably underwent rigorous training in order to effectively portray Conan, enrolling in a six-week training program at a stunt and martial arts academy before even finishing negotiations to star in the film. Momoa also turned to future John Wick directors Chad Stahelski and David Leitch to help him build 10 pounds of muscle for his role in the Conan the Barbarian remake.


As he notes, Momoa’s Conan the Barbarian was largely dismissed by critics and audiences alike upon its release, namely for its poor script, characters and performances, though Momoa himself did ultimately receive some positive reception for his work in the film. Luckily for him and action genre fans, Momoa would go on to better make a name for himself on both the big and small screens with everything from Game of Thrones to Aquaman. While audiences await the latter character’s return in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom in March, they can revisit Momoa’s Conan the Barbarian streaming on HBO Max now.

Jennette McCurdy Opens Up About Friendship With Miranda Cosgrove and Why She’s Not in the ‘iCarly’ Reboot

Published

on

Jennette McCurdy is opening up about her friendship with Miranda Cosgrove. In her new memoir, I’m Glad My Mom Died, the 30-year-old former actress reveals her first impression of her iCarly co-star and shares why she didn’t sign on to be a part of its recent reboot. The show ran for six seasons, which aired between 2007 and 2012.

After landing the role of Sam Puckett when she was 14, McCurdy was “fascinated” to learn of Cosgrove’s “independence,” something McCurdy wasn’t accustomed to, given her abusive relationship with her now-late mom.

“She walked alone to pick up food from a different nearby restaurant each day — alone! What’s that like? Then I’d always hear when she came walking back into the studio because she’d be playing Gwen Stefani or Avril Lavigne from her Sidekick. I knew of these artists, but Mom didn’t allow me to listen to them because she said their music might make me wanna ‘do bad things,'” McCurdy, who grew up Mormon, writes of Cosgrove. “On set, Miranda said cuss words like ‘s**t’ and ‘a**,’ and she took the Lord’s name in vain at least fifty times a day. Mom warned me not to get too close to Miranda because she doesn’t believe in God.”

The then-teens quickly developed a friendship, mostly through AIM.

“Miranda and I spent hours talking every day on it,” McCurdy recalls. “… Even though in person Miranda seemed shy and quiet, she had a distinct and hilarious personality through her written words. So many of the things she said made me laugh. Her way of observing things — people, habits, human nature. I loved her. And I was so excited we were becoming friends.”

As iCarly‘s success continued, so too did McCurdy and Cosgrove’s friendship.

“My friendship with Miranda has been a source of camaraderie and emotional support,” McCurdy writes. “I’m friends with the rest of the cast too, but my connection with Miranda is different and special. We Skype on the weekends and see movies at ArcLight after work.”

When iCarly came to an end, McCurdy worried that it’d mark the end of her friendship with Cosgrove too. That fear really came into focus when the women shot their final scene together through tears.

“The reason I’m crying is that I don’t know what will become of my friendship with Miranda. We’ve gotten so close. Like sisters, but without the passive-aggression and weird tensions,” McCurdy writes. “I have my judgments around female friendships being catty and petty and backstabby, but that couldn’t be further from the truth with Miranda. With Miranda, it’s always been so easy. Our friendship is pure.”

McCurdy soon realized, however, that her fears were unfounded.

“There was no need to worry about context; our friendship has gotten stronger since iCarly ended,” she writes. “We hang out three or four times a week. Usually one of the nights is a sleepover.”

In fact, their bond remained so close that McCurdy eventually opened up to Cosgrove about her struggles with anorexia and bulimia. 

“Miranda’s been very supportive. I appreciate her support but it’s also difficult at times,” McCurdy writes. “Before Miranda knew about this stuff, when bulimia was my secret, I could get through the ups and downs on my own. I was the only person I had to be accountable to, the only person I would disappoint. But now that she’s in on the secret, I can tell she’s hyperaware of my eating tendencies. She’s constantly observing. I’m not just disappointing myself with my slips, but her too.”

As close as the women once were, though, they did start to “drift apart” as they entered their late 20s.

“At the beginning of the decade, the people I was close to seemed like friends for life, people I could never imagine not seeing every day. But life happens. Love happens. Loss happens,” McCurdy writes. “Change and growth happen at different paces for different people, and sometimes the paces just don’t line up. It’s devastating if I think too much about it, so I usually don’t.”

That change in their dynamic came around the same time that an iCarly reboot was in the works. Cosgrove wanted McCurdy to jump on board, but the latter actress had expressed embarrassment about her time on the series.

On a phone call, McCurdy insisted, “Miranda, I’m not doing the reboot. There’s nothing you can say to convince me.” 

“She tells me she thinks the reboot could be an opportunity for all of us in the cast to ‘get back out there,’ maybe get some other opportunities from it,” McCurdy recalls of Cosgrove.

When that tactic didn’t work, Cosgrove reminded McCurdy that “it’s really good money.”

“But there are things more important than money. And my mental health and happiness fall under that category,'” McCurdy recalls telling her. “There’s a moment of silence. It’s one of those rare moments where I feel like I didn’t say too much, or too little. I feel like I represented myself accurately and there’s nothing I would change about the way I said it. I feel proud. We wrap up our conversation, promising to keep in touch, and hang up.”

When ET spoke to Cosgrove last year, she reacted to McCurdy’s decision not to reprise her role in the reboot.

“We all really wanted Jennette to be a part of the show in real life, but she’s just doing other things and we’re really happy for her,” Cosgrove said at the time, adding that McCurdy would be welcomed onto the reboot “anytime.”

I’m Glad My Mom Died is out now.
