Christopher Walken Unrecognizable as Captain Hook in NBC’s ‘Peter Pan Live!’ (Photo)

Allison Williams is also seen as she battles the iconic foe

Christopher Walken, is that you under that red cloak, curly wig and handlebar mustache?

The first photo of Walken in costume as Captain Hook in NBC’s upcoming “Peter Pan Live!” musical has been released, but we’ll have to take executive producer Neil Meron‘s word that it’s him under the elaborate get up.

“The Deer Hunter” star is completely unrecognizable in Hook’s classic red pirate costume, with long hair, shapely beard and hooked hand in tow as he wields a sword against Allison Williams, playing Peter Pan.

Meron, who is producing the live musical broadcast after last year’s “The Sound of Music” success, tweeted the photo and captioned it, appropriately, “wow!!!!”

Walken and Williams will be joined by Christian Borle, who will play both the Darling patriarch George and Hook’s sidekick Smee, and Broadway star Kelli O’Hara as Mrs. Darling, with Taylor Louderman as Wendy and Alanna Saunders as Tiger Lily.
