We're learning more about this terrible tragedy.
This handsome TV vampire recently gave the Hollywood Bowl his best Razzle Dazzle appearing as Billy Flynn in a production of Chicago, and it must have been pretty great because he was just offered another musically demanding role!
Bill Stephen will portray WWI hero and single father, Captain Georg Von Trapp, who is living in Austria right before World War II.
He falls for Maria (Carrie Underwood), a glorified nanny who he hires to take care of his children!
The production is scheduled to air Dec. 5th and will be based on the original 1959 Broadway production of the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical!
Can't wait to see this lovely show!
We vow to Clim Ev'ry Mountain before December! LOLz!
