This is what happens when Kristen Bell is busy. Girls star Allison Williamshas been cast in the title role of NBC's Peter Pan Live!, the network announced Wednesday.

Good to know I'm not the only one who needs pizza to make it through a long night at the Oscars.
With Ellen DeGeneres serving up laughs along with slices, disarming the starry crowd with stunts like a pizza delivery for the starving captive audience and a Superstar Selfie that temporarily broke Twitter (and during the taking of which Meryl Streep delightfully blurted, "I've never tweeted before!"), even the Oscars' inevitable dull patches felt less painful than usual.
The 86th Academy Awards is almost here! The anticipated ceremony will air Sunday at 8:30 p.m. ET / 5:30 p.m. PT on ABC.
Ellen DeGeneres will make her second appearance as host of the ceremony, which will be produced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron.
Laurence Fishburne, Mads Mikkelsen
"I never feel guilty eating anything," purrs Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) as he serves up another portion of some erotically charged exotic delicacy. NBC's Hannibal (Friday, 10/9c), in its second season, is a feast of macabre freakishness, going beyond the realm of guilty pleasure in a sustained nightmare of horrific yet elegantly hypnotic design.
Pink will make a special appearance at the Oscars, producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron announced on Friday.
"We are very excited to welcome Pink to the Oscar stage for the very first time," Zadan and Meron said in a statement. "She is regarded as one of the greatest voices in pop music and one of the best performers of her generation, and we are thrilled to have her join us for a highly anticipated moment on the broadcast."
Two-time Oscar nominee Bette Midler will perform at the Oscars next month, producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron announced Wednesday.

Emile Hirsch and Holliday Grainger
The scene being shot for the real-life crime saga Bonnie & Clyde in Baton Rouge looks innocent enough: Inside an old sugar refinery that's been made to look like a 1930s speakeasy, couples in vintage finery crowd the dance floor. Clyde Barrow (Into the Wild's Emile Hirsch) takes his pretty date, Bonnie Parker (The Borgias' Holliday Grainger), for a twirl, then leans in for their first kiss. "I'm the man who's going to make your dreams come true," Barrow, a wannabe gangster, promises the girl who craves fame no...
Carrie Underwood and Stephen Moyer
Imagine for a moment that it's Thursday at 8pm. You innocently turn on your TV and flip to NBC, thinking maybe you'll catch an episode of Parks and Recreation. Instead, you encounter what is surely destined to be one of the most curious, ambitious and generally nutso undertakings in recent media history: A live (!), three-hour (!!) production of The Sound of Music, featuring country superstar Carrie Underwood (!!!) as Maria von Trapp.
Rest assured, you haven't been smoking edelweiss. This reimagining of the beloved classic about a plucky nun-turned-governess, her irresistible charges and their widower father in Nazi-occupied Austria is actually happening on network television...
