Known for her role as the high-maintenance, glamorous Marnie in Girls, Allison Williams may not be the first name on our list of potential Peter Pans (we just can’t see her in those green tights) but the beautiful brunette is set to do just that. Cast in NBC’s latest live-action TV performance, Williams will be playing the title role of Mr Pan himself, or should we say, Mrs Pan.
Starring opposite Christopher Walken as Captain Hook, Williams said, ‘I have wanted to play Peter Pan since I was about three years old, so this is a dream come true…besides what could go wrong in a live televised production with simultaneous flying, sword fighting and singing?’ She might have her doubts, but we don’t. A celeb-filled musical performance of our fav Disney flick? Yes please. Plus, androgyny is so hot right now.
NBC’s Peter Pan airs on December 4th.
