Allison Williams will play Peter Pan in NBC’s version of the live musical!
I love Allison– she plays Marnie in HBO’s Girls and plays a very uppity girl living in NYC. I am anxious to see how she takes on this part that is WAY out of her wheelhouse. In a few scenes of her current series she has sung and NAILED IT so at least we know she can do that!
NBC announced the Peter Pan revival after Carrie Underwood successfully pulled in HUGE ratings on the remake of ‘The Sound of Music’. However, Carrie got a WHOLE lot of criticism on how she handled her role as Maria von Trapp.
Christopher Walken has also signed on to play Hook in the musical. So needless to say, it will be star-studded.
I hope they are easy on her– although critics never are. She’s a young, beautiful, talented girl who I think has got this under control. We shall see!
The live musical of ‘Peter Pan’ will air on December 4, 2014. Will you be watching?! -@KelOnAir
