Stephen Moyer’s going from playing a Southern vampire possessed by a god in True Blood to Captain Von Trapp in NBC’s The Sound of Music. The musical, which already snagged Carrie Underwood as Maria, will be broadcast live on December 5, 2013. Yes, live – you read that correctly. The Sound of Music will air as a three hour live holiday special.
For those not up on their Sound of Music trivia, here’s a description of Moyer and Underwood’s characters: “Moyer will portray decorated World War I hero Capt. Georg Von Trapp, who is the single father of seven children. Living in Austria on the cusp of World War II, the militaristic but warm-hearted Von Trapp engages a young governess, Maria, who he hires to take care of his children.”
Moyer’s no stranger to musicals, most recently appearing in the Hollywood Bowl production of Chicago as lawyer Billy Flynn.
