Stephen Moyer, best known for his turn as vampire Bill Compton on the hit HBO series “True Blood,” has been cast as Captain Von Trapp in a remake of “The Sound of Music.” He’ll play opposite – wait for it – Carrie Underwood as the nun turned governess Maria.
While Underwood has a great voice, perhaps she’s a little too pretty to play the virginal and innocent Maria. I wonder who they are going to cast as the Von Trapp kids – Angus T. Jones? Miley Cyrus? Can you see her singing “I am 16 going on 17”?
We know Carrie can sing, but can Moyer? Well, he recently performed the role of Billy Flynn in Chicago at the Hollywood Bowl (played by Richard Gere in the movie). He wasn’t half bad. Take a look at the video below.
This remake will be based on the stage version of the musical, not the iconic film we know and love, so maybe there’s room for both versions.
What do you think of this casting?
