NBC’s First Image Of Christopher Walken As Captain Hook Looks Pretty Terrible

After the success of NBC’s live version of The Sound of Music starring Carrie Underwood, the television company thought they’d give it another go with a live adaptation of Peter Pan starring Christopher Walken as Captain Hook. Personally, that kind of sells me on the idea alone despite everything else that could possibly go wrong with this production.

And finally NBC released an official photo of Walken in full Hook wardrobe. Unfortunately, he looks pretty goofy. And kinda drag queeny?

Maybe it’s his already womanly features but I’m not quite buying the whole thing just yet. Somehow Captain Hook looks more womanly than Peter Pan, who is actually portrayed by a woman. Allison Williams, daughter of NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams will be flying through the air with strings visible (since it is live television and everything) alongside Walken which is set to air on Dec. 4th.

I just don’t know. It looks more like a Halloween costume version than what we’re already used to seeing.  What do you guys think?
