The actor will be tap-dancing his way in the upcoming TV show Peter Pan Live.
Christopher Walken will be playing Captain Hook in NBC’s Peter Pan Live – a role that will include singing and tap dancing.
“He might really just be a song-and-dance man at heart,” NBC entertainment chief Bob Greenblatt said last weekend, noting that The Deer Hunter Oscar winner got his start in musicals.
Greenblatt noted that Walken is one of Lorne Michaels’ favourite Saturday Night Live hosts because he’s so willing to go all out. He said Walken would bring that same spirit to Peter Pan. The casting was announced at the Television Critics Association summer press tour. Greenblatt also said more casting announcements will come soon.
Walken also shows off his musical chops in the new Jersey Boys film. — Reuters
