Pirate’s life for Walken


NBC has found its Captain Hook.

The network has signed on Christopher Walken to play the top villain in its upcoming Peter Pan Live! musical special, NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt announced Sunday at the Television Critics Association fall previews in Beverly Hills.

Though usually considered a dramatic actor, Walken has a long history of singing and dancing roles.

From Pennies from Heaven (1981) to Hairspray (2007) to Jersey Boys (2014) to appearances on Saturday Night Live.

"Funny, right?" Greenblatt said. "He's just really a song and dance man at heart."

A baby, wow

“She is here! 7 lbs., 13 oz,” Mathews announced via Twitter.
