Allison Williams As Peter Pan

As one live-action fairy tale after another winds its way to the big screen, NBC is doing one better with an actual live production. Following the smash success (well, ratings-wise) of last winter’s The Sound of Music Live!, the network is putting on Peter Pan Live! this winter.

Allison Williams stars as the boy who never grew up (which kinda fits, since Girls is all about girls who can’t quite seem to grow up) and Christopher Walken plays the malicious Captain Hook. The first Peter Pan Live poster has just been revealed and you can see it after the jump.

See Christopher Walken as Captain Hook in Peter Pan Live

Christopher Walken Captain Hook

We’ve already seen what Girls star Allison Williams will look like as the ultimate Lost Boy in Peter Pan Live! on NBC. Now we get to take a peek at her foe.

Producer Neil Meron has unveiled the first look at Christopher Walken as Peter Pan Live!‘s Captain Hook. And it’s good that we already know it’s Walken under there, because we might not have been able to recognize him otherwise. See the Christopher Walken Captain Hook after the jump.

‘Girls’ Season 3 Trailer: Dancing on Graves

Girls For a comedy, Girls‘ second season was pretty damn grim. Not meth empire / zombie apocalypse grim, perhaps, but dark nonetheless. Jessa (Jemima Kirke) skipped town, Marnie (Allison Williams) got fired, Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) struggled with her first real relationship, and Hannah (Lena Dunham) had a full-on nervous breakdown. But it looks like their fortunes are changing for the better in Season 3.

The first full-length trailer feels like a return to the lighter tone of Season 1, in contrast to the melancholy of Season 2. All of the women are still works in progress — that’s why we love them — but they seem to be better off than they were the last time we saw them. As Marnie puts it, “I am okay. I may not seem okay and I may not be okay now, but I am, like, okay.” Watch the trailer after the jump.

Allison Williams

With a spring 2015 date already locked in, Josh Trank‘s Fantastic Four reboot should be thinking about casting in the nearish future. And while no one’s locked in yet, one name has just leaked from the shortlist of potential leads. Girls actress Allison Williams is reportedly being eyed, presumably for the role of Sue Storm a.k.a. Invisible Woman.

Whether or not Williams books that high-profile part, she’s poised to make the leap into features soon. Williams has entered talks to play the title role in Rosaline, a contemporary retelling of Romeo and Juliet. More on both films after the jump.

As devotees of Louie and Sherlock are sighing over extralong gaps between seasons, Girls fans are enjoying some schedule shuffling in the opposite direction. Although the first season of Girls debuted in the spring, Season 2′s kicking off a little earlier than expected in January 2013. Which means the marketing push starts now.

HBO’s already offered up a not-terribly-revealing teaser and a handful of stills from the upcoming season. Now they’re ramping up the campaign with the first full trailer, which features a nice mix of fresh and familiar faces. Hannah (Lena Dunham) and her usual gang are all here, along with returning guest stars like Jorma Taccone and Chris O’Dowd and newcomers like Donald Glover, Patrick Wilson, and Rita Wilson. Watch it after the jump.

Well, it’s about time. A couple of months ago, we got an amusing first teaser for HBO’s Veep, and last week saw the release of a short featurette from the set. But it’s only now that we’re finally getting a real look at the series, a political satire of contemporary American politics from In the Loop director Armando Iannucci.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus stars as a senator who wins the office of vice president of the United States, only to find that the job isn’t at al what she expected. Also starring are Anna Chlumsky, Matt Walsh, Sufe Bradshaw, and Tony Hale (looks like all that schooling finally paid off for Buster).

In addition, the network has unveiled another new trailer for Girls, Lena Dunham (Tiny Furniture) and Judd Apatow‘s comedy about twentysomething women trying to make it in the big, bad city. Watch the videos after the jump.
