Chris Pratt is a hot commodity these days after powering Guardians Of The Galaxy to box office glory. Saturday Night Live wisely picked the 35-year-old actor to kick off the show’s milestone 40th Season. It’ll be his first time hosting the veteran show. Joining him as musical guest for the premiere on September 5 is Ariana Grande. Find out who’s hosting and the musical guest the following week 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.

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.

When I first heard Zac Efron signed on for NBC’s new reality series hosted by Bear Grylls, I just assumed he was an adrenaline junkie. After watching the network’s latest promo for Running Wild With Bear Grylls, I’m thinking Efron’s participation is a calculated move by his team to show studio execs that Zac is ready to become Hollywood’s next big action movie star.

In the recently-released clip, Efron crosses a rope tied across 150 foot high ravine. Even though he’s attached to a safety line, I can only imagine how harrowing it was for him. Grylls instructs Zac not to look down, but did anyway which threw him off in the beginning. I expect plenty more death-defying stunts from the 26-year-old during his episode.

Running Wild with Bear Grylls premieres on Monday, July 28 at 8/7c on NBC. Other stars signed on include Channing Tatum, Tom Arnold, Ben Stiller and more. Check out the clip below.

NBC’s next live musical event finally has its first cast member. The network announced Christopher Walken’s addition during the Television Critics’ Association’s summer press tour on Sunday. Walken will play none other than Captain Hook in the network’s production of Peter Pan.

The 71-year-old actor is known mostly for his dramatic work but he’s worked in musicals before, appearing in both Hairspray and Jersey Boys, though he doesn’t sing in the latter. Here’s what NBC entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt told reporters.

“He might really be a song and dance man at heart. He’s fearless as a comedic actor and always comes to play.”

“I guarantee you he’s going to bring his own spin to Captain Hook,” added the exec. “He might be the first tap dancing Captain Hook.”

Starting July 20, Bear Grylls will take six celebrities into the wildest and most remote locations in the U.S. and around the world for a 48-hour journey of a lifetime. Each episode of Running Wild with Bear Grylls will feature one celebrity enduring the harsh wilderness in high-octane, action-based and empowering journeys spread over six remote locations. From skydiving into the Catskill Mountains, to rappelling down the cliffs of Utah and battling torrential wind and rain in Scotland, Grylls and each celebrity will have to push both their minds and bodies to the limit to successfully complete their journey.

Those brave stars who signed undoubtedly multiple releases to appear on the show are Zac Efron (Neighbors), actor-director Ben Stiller (The Secret Life of Walter Mitty), actor Channing Tatum (22 Jump Street), NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders, actor Tom Arnold (Sons of Anarchy) and MSNBC and Today anchor Tamron Hall. NBC just released two promos for the upcoming reality show. In one of them Efron is shown eating a bug. Check it out below.
