NBC unveiled the first photos of Captain Hook look of Christopher Walken in Peter Pan Live! photo.
Christopher Walken will face off against Allison Williams in NBC’s “Peter Pan Live!” NBC released a first look at Christopher Walken’s Captain Hook and Allison Williams’ Peter Pan.
The shot comes from NBC’s upcoming live production of Peter Pan.
Christopher Walken, who played lead in several live productions of William Shakespeare plays like “Hamlet,” “Macbeth” and “Romeo and Juliet” will be playing the villains Captain Hook.
The 71-year-old actor told EW “”I’m not a good singer.
The songs are done almost like patter.
Think Rex Harrison in My Fair Lady.” Walken called Allison Williams “wonderful” and added “I suspect she really can sing.” Peter Pan Live! is based on the 1954 Broadway musical that starred Mary Martin as Peter Pan and British actor Cyril Ritchard as Captain Hook.
Peter Pan Live! Executive Director Neil Meron tweeted the first picture of Walken in character as Captain Hook on Wednesday, Sept.
The shot shows Hook and Peter Pan, played by Allison Williams, on a ship’s mast, fighting sword for knife. Earlier this month, Brian Williams’ kid told NBC’s Today that Walken “is the ideal Captain Hook and I can’t wait for this whole process.
He makes me laugh so hard.” This will be NBC’s second live musical.
Last year, the network produced a live broadcast of “Sound of Music Live!” which starred country star Carrie Underwood as Maria von Trapp.
NBC will broadcast Peter Pan Live! air on Dec.
