What If The Stars Of 'GIRLS' Were All Cast In 'Peter Pan'

By

Allison Williams was cast as Peter Pan, which is kind of weird.

NBC has officially casted a Peter for their live musical adaptation Peter Pan Live: Allison Williams, AKA, Marnie from GIRLS will be playing our favorite forever-child. While Carrie Underwood took on a major feat last year trying to fill Julie Andrew’s shoes, Allison has till December 4 (When Peter Pan Live! airs on NBC) to try and outdo her predecessors. She will have to work extra hard to be on the same level as Mary Martin, who is by far the best Peter Pan of all the Peters out there.

This morning, NBC announced the news via Twitter. Allison made an official statement after the news broke, saying, "I have wanted to play Peter Pan since I was about three years old, so this is a dream come true. It’s such an honor to be a part of this adventure, and I'm very excited to get to work with this extraordinarily talented team. And besides, what could go wrong in a live televised production with simultaneous flying, sword fighting and singing?"

In honor of Allison’s new role, we have decided to cast the rest of the GIRLS stars in Peter Pan. Spoiler alert, in our version, Allison did not land the lead role. Sorry NBC.

Zosia Mamet as Peter Pan: She’s fun and already acts like a kid! Plus Shosh failed college, so we imagine she’s not ready to be a grown up.

Allison Williams as Wendy Darling: Because Wendy sucks the fun out of everything, just like Marnie.

Jemima Kirke as Tiger Lily: She’s already got the wardrobe down, and Tiger Lily is a badass, just like Jessa.

Lena Dunham as Michael Darling: Michael is the baby of the family and no where near a grown up, kind of how we feel about Hannah Horvath.

Alex Karpovsky as John Darling: Even though he’s still a kid, John Darling is a tiny man child, just like Ray.

Peter Scolari and Becky Ann Baker as Mr and Mrs. Darling: Because there have to be adults somewhere.

Jon Glaser as Smee: Laird just kind of feels like a Smee to us. Maybe because he’s a little creepy.

Ebon Moss-Bachrach and Richard E. Grant as The Lost Boys: Because no one on girls acts like a grown up, even the sudo-grown ups.
