    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.

  • Belinda

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

  • James

    This is going to be a disaster.

  • Shecky

    Gee, shocker. Her Dad makes $18M a year as NBC Nightly News anchor and she gets a role on…..an 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.

    @Isabel:

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

  • R.J.

    Nepotism.

  • Living in a box

    What in the world!? This have disaster written all over it!

  • ….

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

  • brian

    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.
