'Malcolm' in the Mardi Gras

09/26/1997 at 12:00 AM EDT

Frankie Muniz, 15, the star of the hit Fox sitcom "Malcolm in the Middle" and last year's feature film "My Dog Skip," has been named celebrity grand marshal of the Krewe of Endymion parade, one of the largest of about 50 parades that on Feb. 24 is scheduled to snake its way through New Orleans during the Carnival season. Muniz will be joined in the procession by approximately 2,000 members of Endymion, country singers Brooks and Dunn, New Orleans Saints head coach Jim Haslett and the disco group K.C. and the Sunshine Band, reports the Associated Press. Last year's celebrity grand marshal was a local Louisianan, Britney Spears.
