NBC has finally announced who’ll be playing the title role in their live-action performance presentation of Peter Pan on December 4.
Allison Williams, who plays Marnie on the HBO dramedy Girls, will put on the green costume and fly off to Neverland.
She says she’s wanted to play Peter Pan since she was about three years old, so the casting is a dream come true.
NBC’s chairman of entertainment says Allison will “bring the perfect blend of ‘boyish’ vulnerability and bravado to save the day.”
Did he just call the Girls girl a boy?
Here’s the good news: Christopher Walken already signed on as Captain Hook, otherwise Lena Dunham could have ended up in the role.
