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.
