How do you solve a problem like recasting Julie Andrews' iconic role?
NBC execs say the solution is simple… give it to Carrie Underwood!
The American Idol hottie is going to play Maria Von Trapp in a LIVE TV broadcast of The Sound of Music! We have to agree, casting Carrie is the PERFECT choice!
A big wig at NBC announced the big news, practically creaming his pants saying:
“Speaking for everyone at NBC, we couldn't be happier to have the gifted Carrie Underwood take up the mantle of the great Maria von Trapp. She was an iconic woman who will now be played by an iconic artist.”
We are SO excited, we want to turn our old curtains into daywear and dance around!
This production is sure to be one of our favorite things… like, even more than whiskers on kittens!
