Twitter Watch: Lena Dunham Weighs in on Allison Williams as Peter Pan!
It was announced earlier today that "Girls" star and classically trained singer Allison Williams has been cast as the iconic title character in NBC's Dec. 4 telecast of "Peter Pan Live!". On Twitter, her fellow "Girls" star Lena Dunham had this to say @lenadunham:
Allison is about to undertake one of the greatest drag roles in history and we are so proud we could burst. She will slay.
Williams, who has sung on HBO's "Girls" and in various other projects, is an accomplished actress and singer. Since graduating from Yale University in 2010, she has starred as Marnie Michaels on the twice Emmy Award-nominated and Golden Globe-winning "Girls."
Williams recorded several songs (as Marnie) for the "Girls" soundtrack, and videos of her singing online that she made prior to "Girls" have gained millions of views. Williams has also appeared on "The Mindy Project" and "The League."
