Does anyone else have a feeling that NBC’s upcoming Peter Pan musical is going to be one hot mess? Call me pessimistic but I think it’ll be more cringeworthy than Carrie Underwood’s wooden acting in The Sound Of Music last year. It definitely won’t attract nearly the amount of viewers. That’s for sure.

The network unveiled the first promo poster for their musical event. Allison Williams takes flight as Christopher Walken serves his best menacing mug in the artwork. Peter Pan Live! will air on December 4 on NBC. Despite my doubts, I’ll definitely be there to watch it. How about you? Weigh in below.

Previously, NBC shared the above photo of Allison Williams as the titular character for their upcoming Peter Pan Live! airing December 4. While public opinion was divided on how she looked in Pan’s costume, I almost guarantee the same won’t be said about Christopher Walken as Captain Hook. Walken embodies the meanie perfectly.

The network shared a promo pic with Entertainment Weekly of Walken and Williams dueling as their alter egos. Check out the photo below.

If it was solely based on looks, Allison Williams certainly looks the part of the boy who never wants to grow up. The Girls actress stacks up pretty well with other women who’ve played Peter Pan including Mary Martin, Sandy Duncan and Cathy Rigby. We’ll have to wait til December 4 when NBC airs its live revival to see if Williams has the vocal chops and more importantly, the flying skills as her predecessors.

For those wondering if the 26-year-old chopped her luscious brunette locks for the part, here’s what she revealed on the Today show.

“I sort of very tentatively offered to cut my hair; I was like, ‘You know, if it’s a thing that would help I could cut my hair,’” she said. “And they were like, ‘You’re welcome to do that, we’re still gonna put you in a wig.’”

What do you think of Allison’s Peter Pan costume? Do you think this year’s musical will match The Sound of Music‘s soaring ratings last year? Sound off below.

In the grand tradition of the original Broadway musical, a woman has been tapped to play Peter Pan. NBC has found its leading lady for their upcoming Peter Pan musical in the form of Girls actress Allison Williams. She’ll play the titular character for the network’s live presentation airing December 4. Williams joins previously announced Christopher Walken as Captain Hook.

“We couldn’t be happier that Allison Williams is our Peter Pan,” said NBC chief Robert Greenblatt. “She’s a lovely rising star on the award-winning show Girls—where she occasionally shows off her incredible vocal talent—and we think she will bring the perfect blend of ‘boyish’ vulnerability and bravado to save the day against Christopher Walken’s powerful Captain Hook.”

Williams briefly demonstrated her singing abilities on the HBO comedy. I’m sure she’s actually better than what was shown on Girls. Love Allison but I’m not sure if she has the star wattage to lure in viewers like Carrie Underwood did last year with The Sound of Music. Her wooden acting generated 18.6 million viewers.

HBO Renews Girls For Fourth Season

In: Donovan, TV Shows

If you can’t imagine life without seeing Lena Dunham’s titties on your television, you’re in luck. Even without airing an episode, HBO revealed at the Television Critics Association press tour that they’ve greenlit Girls for a fourth season. I’m hoping their bullish decision is based on the quality of upcoming episodes. IMHO, it suffered a sophomore slump. Meanwhile, the network announced Boardwalk Empire would end after its fifth season this Fall.

I can’t say I’m all that surprised with the network’s decision to renew Girls. Despite mediocre ratings, the “comedy” garners plenty of press and watercooler buzz. To boot, it’s earned multiple Emmy and Golden Globe nominations.

Just like Sex and the City, plenty of press show up for the Girls premiere party. Everyone wants to see what the girls are wearing. Much like their SATC counterparts, Allison Williams, Zosia Mamet, Jemima Kirke and Dunham, whether intentional or not, tend to dress like their on-screen personas. Williams is the stunning ingenue with Dunham usually in an unflattering ensemble. Check out what they wore for this year’s premiere below, along with the previous two years. Sound off on which girl has the best style in the comments section.

Amy Poehler, Mindy Kaling, Zooey Deschanel, and Allison Williams all appear in separate covers for Elle’s Women in TV issue. While Poehler, Deschanel and Williams’ respective photos are in color and reveal their entire body, Kaling’s is noticeably a different color and only features the comedienne’s upper body.

Some critics are slamming Elle for being racist and “fat-ist.” This isn’t the first time Elle has been slammed for not embracing full-figured women. The publication wrapped Melissa McCarthy in an over-sized coat last year. Kaling made light of the controversy and used the opportunity to promote a new episode of The Mindy Project.

“Wishing for more skin on my @ELLEmagazine cover? Chris Messina & I are naked on a brand new #themindyproject tonight, ya pervs! 930/830 FOX.” Later on, Mindy tweeted “I love my @ELLEmagazine cover. It made me feel glamorous & cool. And if anyone wants to see more of my body, go on thirteen dates with me.”

Elle also broke their silence and wrote, “Mindy looks sexy, beautiful and chic. We think it is a striking and sophisticated cover and are thrilled to celebrate her in our Women in TV Issue.” Editor in chief Robbie Myers wrote in a press release, “The covers we shot with Zooey Deschanel, Mindy Kaling, Amy Poehler and Allison Williams are all distinctive.”

Sometimes I feel people have a tendency to overreact to situations like this, but you can’t deny something is a little fishy here. Kaling’s cover is so vastly different, I can totally imagine what editors said while picking the photo. I’ve seen Devil Wears Prada numerous times ;) Check out the other covers below which were all snapped by photographer Carter Smith.

Check Out Girls’ Season 3 Trailer

In: Donovan, TV Shows
girls-season-3-trailer

Technically, Girls is a comedy. Based on last season though, if you tuned in looking for laughs, you would’ve been sadly disappointed. The comedic moments were few and far in between. Am I alone in thinking Lena Dunham took it too dark and depressing? Hopefully, Dunham and her writers were in a better mood this year. Otherwise, I’m permanently breaking up with the HBO show.

In the newly-released trailer, Hannah (Dunham) is shacking up with Adam (Adam Driver) once again. Given the fact Christopher Abbott left the show, poor Marnie (Allison Williams) is toughing it out alone. Jessa (Jemima Kirke) is still being Jessa, while Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) and Ray (Alex Karpovsky) are still driving each other crazy. If that wasn’t enough, Shosanna takes a page from Miley’s book and twerks her little heart out on some poor dead person’s tombstone. Classic Shos ;)

This year, we get a temporary change of scenery. As with most NYC-based shows like Gossip Girl and Sex and the City, the requisite trip to the Hamptons takes place. Check out the trailer below.

Now in its sixth year, this highly praised and always unpredictable telecast is one big party that grants the gay stamp of approval to pop culture icons and trendsetters as well as stars-on-the-rise and celebrates what’s hot in TV, music, film and fashion for 2013 and beyond.

With irreverent and outrageous categories including “Hottest, Sexiest Ink,” “Host with the Most,” “That’s My Jam” and “TV You Betta Watch,” the ceremony is always fun to watch. My personal favorite is the “Cause You’re Hot” award. All of the nominees are definitely worthy of the win. I covered the red carpet and ceremony a couple of years ago and think its time to check them out again. Especially given the caliber of the nominees. I love star gazing.
