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.
"Allison Williams is a major find," said executive producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron. "She will reinvent the iconic role of Peter Pan with her wit, her warmth, her dynamic flying and her wonderful musical abilities. The score will be sung beautifully and introduced to a whole new generation of families."
