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.

Arguably the most-hyped show coming into this new season has to be Gotham. FOX’s Batman prequel didn’t disappoint in terms of ratings. It notched 8 million viewers and a 3.2 rating among the coveted 18-49 demo. Definitely solid given it was against two back-to-back episodes of The Big Bang Theory. Only time will tell if the show can maintain or build upon its series premiere numbers.

Also debuting well was Scorpion over at CBS. It generated 14 million viewers and a 3.3 rating. No doubt aided greatly by it’s cushy lead-in- The Big Bang Theory double header. I don’t typically watch shows on the eye network, but this one has me intrigued. I can’t wait to check it out when I get back from my Hawaiian vacay.

Unfortunately for ABC, the winning streak for freshman shows ended with Forever. The show did alright with 8.3 million viewers but only managed to snag 1.5 rating in the 18-49 demo. That number represents a 32 percent decrease from Castle which occupied the post-Dancing With The Stars slot last season. Don’t expect a long life for this immortality drama.

OMG!!! Please say it isn’t so. Who’s going to play Whoopi Goldberg for future skits on Saturday Night Live? #travesty

According to TMZ, the show’s most seasoned active performer is planning to leave at the end of the 2014-15 season. Their sources say Kenan Thompson wanted out last season, but producer Lorne Michaels convinced him to stay since there was massive cast changes last year.

The 36-year-old joined the show in 2003, making him the most tenured African-American cast member in the show’s 40-year history. Reportedly, he wants to move to the West Coast with his wife and new baby to pursue new opportunities.

Will you miss Kenan? What’s your favorite performance of his? Weigh in below after reliving his hilarious impersonation of Whoopi.

UPDATE: EW.com reached out to an SNL spokesperson. They said the report is “inaccurate as the season hasn’t even started and cast decisions aren’t made until the end of the season.”

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.

Did you grow up in the 90s? Are you a Maroon 5 fan? If both apply to you, then his potential new series is right up your alley.

Deadline.com reports Adam Levine and his production company have received a script commitment from NBC for a potential single-camera series tentatively titled Kids In America. The show is inspired by the 35-year-old’s real-life experiences growing up in an unconventional family during the 90s. Much like ABC’s The Goldbergs, the show will be seen through the eyes of a teenager.

With 90s nostalgia in full swing and Levine hotter than ever, it’s the perfect time for this project. If the peacock network passes, hopefully another network steps in. Do you agree? Would you watch a show based on Adam’s childhood dreams of becoming a rock star? Weigh in below.

Anyone else watching Running Wild With Bear Grylls? I’m certainly enjoying him push celebrities out of their comfort zones. The 40-year-old British adventurer has already pushed both Zac Efron and Ben Stiller past their limits on their respective adventures. On Monday, it’s Channing Tatum’s turn.

“I would absolutely say this is more exciting than any movie I’d been on,” Channing says during a confessional. “Everything in the movie world is so planned and generally rehearsed. This is not rehearsed. I don’t know what’s going to happen.”

In a preview released by NBC, the 34-year-old actor jumps out of a helicopter into a body of water. Once they reach land, both Bear and Channing strip their pants off to dry them. This certainly isn’t the first time we’ve all seen Tatum take off his pants ;)

I can’t wait to see what other stuff Bear has in store for the Magic Mike star for his adventure which airs on Monday, August 11 on NBC. Watch a preview 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. Read Allison’s reaction below.
