    Poll: Pick The Actor Who Will Play Captain Von Trapp With Carrie in Sound of Music

    I thought this would be fun. Obviously there are only 10 slots for picks, so I had fun with this. lol But feel free to add others you think it will be in the "Other" category.

    If I don't include your pick in these 10 slots-- please write who you picked as I am curious.

    If anyone wins this poll- I promise to send you a copy of the Sound of Music CD or DVD that they (hopefully) make after it airs in December. haha

    I doubt any of my picks are even close.....but here goes. I will post my final pick in my next post.

    ^ I would die for Hugh Jackmann! but he seems too much in demand.

    I really wanted Harry Connick Jr- but he is on tour in October-November so I am not sure he could fit it in...unless he doesn't need as much rehearsal as Carrie does since she is the lead.

    Hamm is a really interesting idea but he could be shooting his own show during the time he would be needed.

    ^ true. I really am unsure who they will pick -- because it feels too late in the year to nab a big A-list actor....as he may already be booked by now.

    I would think if they were getting a big A-list actor, he would have been booked way in advance, when Carrie was booked. But I could be wrong.

    Tee, I would think they already have picked a leading man. Just not sure why they haven't announced anyone, including the kids.

    I hadn't even thought of Patrick Wilson, but I absolutely love that idea!! He killed me so much in Angels in America. Oh geez, now my hopes are up, lol. Eddie Redmayne is also an amazing choice. They both have projects coming up, though, so I don't know how likely they are.

    I haven't answered the poll yet because I really want to put some thought into this, haha. I'll get back to you with some suggestions.

    Hey I forgot Matthew Broderick. He has Broadway cred and might be cheaper then Hugh Jackman. Lol

    Agree. I want Patrick too since Harry may be touring.

    i included people in the poll that rumors were spread About like Jon Hamms tweet and Rob Lowe rumors etc. i included Josh Raynor just cuz he tweeted carrie and they follow each other. But I don't really want anyone but Patrick, Harry Hugh or Eddy Or Alec Baldwin. Lol

    I voted other...my pick would be Matthew Morrison on Glee. He has a beautiful voice but I'm not sure if he is older than Carrie or not.

    I love how I somehow missed that Patrick Wilson/Carrie Underwood duet. Where the heck was I? I didn't know they had any connection whatsoever. My life has now been changed.

    James Marsden could be an interesting choice as well, just to throw a name out there. I was thinking about Aaron Tveit but I always think of Captain von Trapp as being a bit older than Maria.

    true, the Capt. was 25 years older, still Matthew just seems too old and too set in comedy for the role to me

    if I had to bet, and if they're going to get a TV star, I'd bet on Jon Hamm.

    Plus I think of the captain on the taller side and so an actor like Matthew B. really doesn't fit of my image of the captain!!!
