Shiver me timbers, Christopher Walken is almost unrecognizable as a pirate!

One of the producers of NBC’s upcoming production of Peter Pan Live! Tweeted out the first picture of Walken as Captain Hook. Walken’s got a nice left hook, too, to go with his fine hat and red plume.

“Wow!!!” Tweeted Neil Meron, who is executive-producing the live production of the classic story with Craig Zadan. Allison Williams of HBO’s Girls stars as Peter Pan.

Walken was cast in August to play the villainous role in the televised production, which will air Dec. 4 on NBC. The Oscar-winning actor started his career in musicals, so the musical will give him “a chance to put on my tap shoes again,” he said at the time.

Williams has already begun her transformation as the boy who won’t grow up: She’s donning a short wig for the role and taking flying lessons. See below:
