NBC has revealed the first photo of Allison Williams as Peter Pan for their telecast of Peter Pan Live.
Williams is an accomplished actress and singer. Since graduating from Yale University in 2010, she has starred as Marnie Michaels on the twice Emmy Award-nominated and Golden Globe-winning Girls. Williams has also appeared on The Mindy Project and The League.
One of the main reasons that I'm looking forward to this is that Christopher Walken is playing Captain Hook. That is going to be extremely fun to watch.
As for Williams' look in the special… it's interesting. Peter Pan has traditionally been played by females on stage and Williams should be fine. They cast her for a reason.
