Say it isn't sooooo!

Kristen Bell was TOTALLY asked to be Peter Pan in NBC's upcoming live action production of the fantastic musical — but she couldn't do it because of scheduling conflicts!!

*Hearts breaking all over the world*

After announcing that the AH-Mazing Christopher Walken would be playing Captain Hook, NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt revealed that Miz Bell was considered, but ultimately booted:

"We were talking about doing it with a man at one point, but we've had several women who wanted to do it and they're either busy or their schedules don't work. It's not like we can film this at any time; I need this person from Aug. 5-Dec. 5, so that knocks out the Kristen Bells of the world, who was somebody I talked to about doing it and she was interested but she's doing House of Lies."

He continued:

"It's tricky finding the right person in the schedule that we need it but we're actually close. [Peter is] going to be female."

A female Peter is going to be a fab Mary Martin throwback, and we LOVE!

Our top choice is Anna Kendrick, though she's currently filming Pitch Perfect 2 — and that might be a maJOR conflict!

But whoever it is, she has to have a very strong voice, tiny frame, and a lot of physical endurance! We can't wait for the official announcement!

    Perez, you read my mind. I've been doing the Anna Kendrick mantra for months! Get that girl for the part! Pronto!

    A TV movie of Peter Pan is just wrong.
    Anyway on the rare occasions when I watch TV, I have been boycotting NBC as they were willing to offer money to Casey Anthony for an interview (yes I hold grudges, so what).
