Tony winner Christian Borle must like doing it live.
Singing and dancing, that is.
How else to explain the actor’s desire to get up again over and over for NBC, which, as we know, is putting on Peter Pan Live! this December, with Allison Williams and Christopher Walken, huh. Not to mention his wanting to take on two roles.
See, Borle – who’s currently appearing on Showtime’s Masters of Sex – reportedly is circling the parts of Smee and Mr. Darling on the production, which means we would get double one of the better parts from last year’s Sound of Music live-TV special event (he played Max Dettweiler on that one).
Now. FYI: Mr. Darling appears on the show only during the first and the last act, so don’t be expecting any quick double-takes and such.
Peter Pan Live! will air on Dec. 4.
