Christian Borle Cast in TWO Roles for NBC's 'Peter Pan Live'!

Christian Borle will be playing not one, but TWO roles in the upcoming Peter Pan Live production airing on NBC this holiday season.

The 40-year-old actor will be taking on the roles of Mr. Darling (the father of Wendy and boys) and Smee (Captain Hook’s assistant).

In the original Broadway production of the musical, the actor who played Mr. Darling also played Captain Hook, according to Deadline.

The role of Captain Hook in this version will be played by Christopher Walken while Girls actress Allison Williams will be playing Peter Pan.

You may recognize Christian from his work in NBC’s live production of The Sound of Music and his role on Smash. He is definitely familiar with the world of Peter Pan after starring in (and winning a Tony Award) the Broadway play Peter and the Starcatcher.

'Smash' Series Finale Recap: Who Won the Tony Awards?

The end came with a celebration of the past few years of hard work in the form of the Tony Awards during the series finale of Smash on Sunday (May 26).

The series started off with the inception of the musical Bombshell based on the life of Marilyn Monroe. The second season introduced the original musical Hit List, which became Bombshell‘s competition as they both made their transitions to Broadway at the same time.

In the two hour season finale, we watched as the characters, played by Katharine McPhee, Megan Hilty, Debra Messing, Jeremy Jordan, and many others, watched the nominations for the Tony Awards be announced. In the second hour of the episode, the awards were handed out at a star-studded ceremony.
