15 GIFs That Prove Christopher Walken Will Be A Great Captain Hook

I mean, he'd be OUR weapon of choice in the fight against Peter Pan.

Christopher Walken, lest you forget, is a goddamn legend. He’s a hero of weirdos and the delightfully strange alike. And on Sunday NBC announced that he would helm the role of Captain Hook in their live broadcast of “Peter Pan,” which may be the best casting decision a network has ever made. (Not that we’re being hyperbolic or anything!)

“He might be the first tap-dancing Hook you’ve ever seen,” NBC chief Bob Greenblatt told TV critics at the Television Critics Association Summer Press tour NBC panel event on Sunday morning, no doubt to the glee and euphoric glow of everyone in attendance. Because — hoo boy — do we ever want to see THAT. Who better to play the baddest baddie in all the land than the weapon of choice himself, eh?
