BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — NBC says Christopher Walken will play Captain Hook in the network’s live version of “Peter Pan.”

Walken could create the first tap-dancing Captain Hook, NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt said, noting the actor got his start in musical theater.

“Peter Pan Live!” is a follow-up to the success NBC found with a live version of “The Sound of Music” in 2013 with Carrie Underwood.
