Matthew Botuchis

  1. Bug Hall, The Munsters’ Scary Little Christmas, TV, 1996.    Most of the cast voted themselves out of a job…  Including  Botuchis, the  kid  succeeding TV’s Butch Patrick as Eddie.  The reboot family from Here Come The Munsters, 1994, was due for the Yuletide sequel.   Edward Herrmann, however, wanted a small  pay rise for  continuing as the patriarch, Herman(!).  Impossible, declared the producers. Unless the rest of the family accepted a tiny pay-cut to pay for it. They did not. The film  was made with all new Munsters. (A similar wages battle was the pivot of the Belgian entry at the 2014 Cannes Festival, Deux jours, une nuit/Two Days, One Night).
