Christopher Walken Looks Totally Insane as Captain Hook in NBC’s ‘Peter Pan Live’

By September 24, 2014

We found out back in July that NBC had snagged famed actor Christopher Walken to play the villainous Captain Hook in the network’s rendition of “Peter Pan Live,” which will debut in December. “Girls” star Allison Williams has since taken the lead role of Peter, and though a photo of her in costume popped up online recently, this newest one reveals not only Williams, but Walken in full Hook regalia. And as you can see, it’s totally nuts:


Walken is buried under loads of makeup, some bushy eyebrows, and some wild facial hair, and he looks so different from his normal self that I wasn’t even sure it was him. But that tweet comes from the producer of the show, and I’m guessing he wouldn’t lie about it.

Still no word on whether or not he’ll be singing and dancing, but I’d assume since they cast Walken (a guy who loves to sing and dance) that we’ll be getting a taste of that when this show goes live for the world on December 4th, 2014.
