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!

True Blood star Stephen Moyer has been cast in NBC’s live holiday production of The Sound of Music!

Doe-Ray-Me-Fa-So-La-Ti-Awesome!

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!

    Oh no, they are going to ruin The Sound of Music. don't any of these people have an original thought>

    The fact that they cast Carrie Underwood as Maria means this is going to be terrible.

    I like Stephen Moyer cast in this role ; no comment on Carrie Underwood . I do think they should leave the classics alone. Creativity seems to be at an alone time low: it would be great to see some new material being made.

    Why can't these mf leave classics alone. just don't watch shit. watch the classic instead. carrie underwood ought to be ashamed.

    Re: m_winnike – Agreed. It's already bombed. Sucks they're taking Stephen down with it.

    Why, just because a movie was made , should this musical never be performed again? It's a live broadcast of a restaging of the broadway musical. Musicals are redone all the time, just as the same operas are performed for hundreds of years. Bands tour and play the same songs they played much better in studio. I fail to see how this production is so terrible. From the generation that has made it impossible to see a decent movie onscreen because all Hollywood will fund is retelling the same action hero movies over and over come silly comments like these. Ridiculous.

    Sorry I do not watch NBC anymore since they were originally planning to offer money to Casey Anthony for an onscreen interview.

    What's the matter with you people?

    Lots of Shakespeare's plays have been made into iconic movies - does that mean they should never be put on in a theatre again?

    The Sound of Music was a Broadway musical long before it was made into a movie!

    Re: Eleanor – its the lack of creativity people are responding to. thats all this generation of "artist" can do is copy whats already been done.

    Complain about yet another batman, fine, complain about another xman, another avengers. Or 3 hulk movies, 3 hulks in the last decade is crazy. Or old television shows being made into movies. But a musical, or an opera or a ballet is different. These things are meant to be performed live. And exactly because it is a classic musical is why it shouldn't be locked away in a trunk and never performed again. Also, this is how new fans of theater and the performing arts are created, they start by watching something they've heard of and then when they see how thrilling it is to watch a live performance they are much more likely to watch some new production, or go out to their local theater. My first ballet was Swan Lake, on tv. I loved it as a teen and now as an adult I'm a season ticket subscriber to the ballet company in my home city. I would never have ventured out without that first experience of seeing it on television.

    I am going to be watching this on Dec 5th, and I'm looking forward to an enjoyable evening..
    This is NOT a remake of the movie. This is a new production of the musical play.
    They are two completely different entities. I think Ms. Underwood and Mr. Moyer, along with the other fine performers, will make this a memorable event. I give them kudos for doing a stage production LIVE on TV!
