We are nearing what is sure to be a landmark television event: Peter Pan live on NBC. Its predecessor, The Sound of Music, was a huge ratings hit but received mixed reviews at best. We can get behind the casting of Christopher Walken as Captain Hook, though—he really is a great villain.

"Frankly it's a little intimidating," Walken says. Star Allison Williams (Girls) also admits that Walken is not only funnier than her but also a better actor. Pretty sure nobody's arguing with you on that one, Allison.

The NBC special (LIVE!) airs December 4.
