Hollywood Reporter: NBC has found its Peter Pan: Allison Williams.

The Girls actress will star in the title role of the live Sound of Music follow-up, which NBC will broadcast on Dec. 4, NBC announced Wednesday morning.

She joins Christopher Walken, who was previously cast as Captain Hook.

This story pisses me right off.  You have one of the most attractive girls on TV and you have her play a guy with boyish features.  How does that make sense?  If you are hiring Allison Williams for a Peter Pan show, tell her to throw on some tights and wings.  BOOM, a sexy ass Tinkerbell that everyone will tune into see.  Instead you are going to have a bunch of kids wondering why in the world they are all of a sudden attracted to Peter Pan.  That’s on you, NBC.

By the way, I LOVE the thought of Christopher Walken playing Captain Hook and saying every.  Word.  With.  An.  Unnecessary.  Pause.  Should be interesting at the very least.  Dustin Hoffman raised the bar pretty high, though.

PS- I’ve said it a million times before and I will say it a million times again.  Rufio was a punk who deserved to die.  Either you are Team Pan from Day 1 or you are a traitor that deserves some pirate steel through the heart.  That’s just the way Neverland works.
