Allison Williams as Peter Pan in NBC's Live Musical - First Look Photo!

Check out this first look photo of Allison Williams in character and full costume as the beloved iconic character Peter Pan!

The 26-year-old Girls actress is set to play the title character in the live musical version of the show for NBC, set to air on December 4.

Allison has stated that she often used to dress up as Peter Pan in the past – if you missed it, watch Allison‘s father Brian Williams announce the news in a sweet way on NBC.

Christopher Walken will take on the role of Captain Hook in the live broadcast later this year – we can’t wait to see it!

@Shecky:
HAH! This comment made my day!

@mind_feck: Poor think? Alot of women have played Peter Pan, do your homework.

Liberal Hollywood doesn’t know what real people want anymore. They’re trying to make an iconic Peter Pan character into a feminist? WTF?

They should have broken with tradition and had a actual boy(teenage male) play Peter Pan. Williams looks to old to be playing the part. Actually NBC should have gotten one of the guys who can act from One Direction( or courtless other boy bands) to star in the show.

Why not just get John Krasinski? She looks ridiculous! hahahahaha

She not only looks ridiculous, but judging by the lack of any acting talent in this girl, this whole thing will be one big fail.

@Sandra: but she’s such a bad actress. she’s just a package brought to you by the nepotism foundation.

i know that peter pan has been played by females before but with the amount of twinks running around hollywood, they could’ve found a male who looks boyish enough to play the role. all the good male roles always go to the girls (sigh) (sarcasm).

@Dumb:

yup! first they try shoving men in dresses(laverne cox) down our throats and now peter pan is being played by a girl. Out of 3,4 billion men in the world, they couldn’t find one to play Peter Pan, give me a break.

the world become more and more degenerate each day.

some comments are so hilarious. The role of Peter is supposed to be played by a boy for stage play folks just the way it has always been get used to it

I’m not surprised an Aries woman is playing a boy, they tend to have major ***** envy.

Examples:
Arya Stark a tomboy being played by Aries, Maisie Williams.
Whale Rider’s lead tomboy character Paikea played by Aries, Keisha Castle-Hughes.

Yes I did bring astrology into this lol, but check out other tomboys or tomboy characters.

Kristen Stewart an Aries and tomboy.
Rooney Mara an Aries and her tomboy character Lisbeth Salander.

The ‘Peter Pan’ role in the musical is usually played by a young woman or (more uncommonly) a teen boy-because it’s an alto part. Most male singers tend to be countertenor, tenor, baritone or bass. My gripe is that she’s a crap actress/okay singer-very much like them casting Carrie Underwood as Maria in ‘The Sound of Music’-she has a lovely voice, however it wasn’t suited at all to a musical and her acting was terrible.

Should be a great theater show.
