Come December, Allison Williams of Girls fame will put on her green tights to play Peter Pan in NBC’s live rendition of the classic musical. The actress, who will finally get to show off her pipes in a manner that doesn’t make her look ridiculous (flashback to that time Marnie drunkenly serenaded her ex with some a cappella Kanye West), will be joined by Christopher Walken, set to play Captain Hook. This production is not to be confused with the forthcoming Peter Pan film whose cast includes Cara Delevingne, Rooney Mara, Amanda Seyfried, and Hugh Jackman. (Pan is having a real moment, it would seem.) According to a statement, the show’s producers felt Williams was a good fit because of her wit, her warmth, her musical abilities, and her “dynamic flying.” We’re not 100 percent sure what that means, but we look forward to seeing it.
Just when we thought model-slash-singer was the new model-slash-actress, Cara Delevingne takes the theory to the next level by covering all the bases simultaneously. The model-slash-singer-slash-actress has reportedly landed a small role in Joe Wright’s new adaptation of Peter Pan. Slated to hit theaters in 2015, the film boasts an impressive cast including Amanda Seyfried (as Mary), Hugh Jackman (as Blackbeard), and Rooney Mara (as Tiger Lily). This marks the second time Delevingne and Wright have worked together, the first being the catwalker’s film debut in Anna Karenina. So, what can’t Cara do? She models. She sings. She acts. And if this Burberry moment is any indication, she even flies.
