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.
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.
