NBC Will Be Airing A ‘Peter Pan’ Musical With Christopher Walken As Captain Hook

Hey, handsome.  

Ok. Screen Junkies’ readership probably isn’t too big into musical theater, but that’s only because it’s suffered a lack of Christopher Walken. NBC’s putting a stop to that with by casting him as Captain Hook in a live broadcast performance of a Peter Pan musical.

Why? Because the network saw great numbers from The Sound of Music Live starring Carrie Underwood, and, as we all know, Christopher Walken is just a better version of Carrie Underwood.

The lead role of Peter Pan hasn’t yet been cast, but in form true to the original(s), they had reached out to a female actor in Kristen Bell.

Whoa. Are they trying to make this good or something? Careful NBC, you might actually get a good cast in this thing unless you run, don’t walk to cast someone from a reality singing competition.
