Peter Pan Live! — which also stars Allison Williams as Peter Pan, Kelli O’Hara as Mrs. Darling, Christian Borle as Mr. Darling/Smee and Taylor Louderman as Wendy — premieres Dec. 4 on NBC.

    I admire Christopher Walken’s work whether he’s in movies, hosting SNL and that music video where he’s dancing in every scene but Walken is perfect playing Captain Hook or maybe he’s even better than Dustin Hoffman was.

    This looks so horrible!!

    He looks the part.

    I’m not too sure about this. Its probably gonna end up like a sequel or a remake to an awesome movie that you thought it was gonna be cool but in the end just complete crap.

    I’ll be tuning in just to see Walken. Heck, I’d show up to see Walken read the phone book. lol He looks great!

  6. Drew says:

    He looks pretty good. He should be playing Mr. Darling too though. No way around that.
    And she still looks ridiculous as Peter Pan. Seriously, it looks like a hipster bike messenger chick fighting a pirate in between drinking absurdly convoluted Starbucks mixtures.

    AWFUL! AWFUL! AWFUL! Everything NBC is doing with this wonderful musical seems exactly wrong.
