Here’s a bit of pixie dust to sweeten your morning coffee: actress Allison Williams has been cast as Peter Pan in an NBC live musical production set to premiere on December 4. Sure, Neverland is a far cry from the Girls set in New York, but Allison has eagerly awaited this opportunity since childhood. She even donned a Peter Pan costume as a kid, and posted the proof on Instagram.
Of her upcoming role, she joked: “What could go wrong in a live televised production with simultaneous flying, sword fighting and singing?” On the other end of Allison’s sword, viewers will see the always charming (and sometimes wicked) Christopher Walken in the role of Captain Hook. While it will be tough to rival Walt Disney’s version of the imaginative story, I’ll definitely be tuning in to this star-studded update.
