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.
