    Christopher Plummer Gives Thumb Up to Stephen Moyer Casting, Sound of Music

    He cracked a funny joke about A VAmpire replacing him for the role of Captain Von Trapp. haha He has been very supportive of the Sound of Music NBC broadcast since Carrie was announced, and has tweeted lots of support. Christopher Plummer gives a bemused thumbs-up to the latest choice of Stephen Moyer to succeed him in ”The Sound of Music.”
    Christopher Plummer who is an Oscar winner starred in the tuneful, widely loved 1965 movie as Captain Von Trapp, patriarch of a singing family. The role will be assumed by ”True Blood” regular Stephen Moyer when NBC stages a live production of the Rodgers & Hammerstein classic Thursday, Dec. 5, also with Carrie Underwood in Julie Andrews’ former screen part as nun-in-training turned governess Maria.
    “It was very close to the vampire life, I thought,” Plummer chuckles of the musical.
    All I can say to them is, ‘Good bloody luck!’ I mean, they’re going to have quite a time trying to top Julie. She was so marvelous in it … but they could easily top me. If you see my performance in it in Europe, and it’s dubbed into the language of whatever country it is, it’s so much better.

    It's nice that Christopher Plummer has shown his support. I know Carrie, Stephen Moyer and the rest of the cast will do it justice. Excited for December 5th!

    Should someone let Plummer know that it's not a remake of the movie and that I'm pretty sure one of the goals is to bring a new audience to the show who don't even know who Julie Andrews is. lol.
