    I can’t see it. Wendy? Maybe. But not Peter. It’s an especially confusing choice when you realize that the last woman to play the role on NBC was the talented Mary Martin.

    Horrible choice! She is not a good singer, and does not have the talent to pull it off. Very disappointed.

    This is going to be a disaster.

    Gee, shocker. Her Dad makes $18M a year as NBC Nightly News anchor and she gets a role on… NBC show. Who would’ve believed that, huh?
    But never forget lower and middle class flunkies; the Williams’ family is in full support of you!!
    They’ll be in Martha’s Vineyard if you need ‘em….but don’t need ‘em, OK?
    Side Note: she never would’ve got this role if a Kennedy had wanted it.

    I could see Ellen Page doing it but she probably wouldn’t.

    Nepotism at it’s best, since daddy is the top NBC news anchor.

    Really is it so hard for NBC or Disney for that matter to find a young male actor that can sing to play Peter Pan. Last time I checked there were millions of young men who could play the part out there in the world.

    Nepotism should be illegal. How disgusting.
