'Girls' Star Allison Williams To Play Peter Pan For NBC's 'Peter Pan Live!'

This Girl's got guts! Girls castmember Allison Williams has signed on to play Peter Pan in NBC's live event production Peter Man Live! 

From Entertainment Weekly:

“I have wanted to play Peter Pan since I was about three years old, so this is a dream come true,” said Williams in a press statement. “It’s such an honor to be a part of this adventure, and I’m very excited to get to work with this extraordinarily talented team. And besides, what could go wrong in a live televised production with simultaneous flying, sword fighting and singing?”

“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.”
