View Comments An Oscar winner for The Deer Hunter, Walken is no stranger to bringing Broadway musicals to the screen, having starred in this summer’s Clint Eastwood-helmed Jersey Boys and the film adaptation of Hairspray (produced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, who will reunite with Walken for Peter Pan). Walken’s many films include Stand Up Guys, A Late Quartet and Seven Psychopaths. The actor began his career in the 1950s as a Broadway dancer. He received Tony nods for his performances in The Dead and A Behanding in Spokane. According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt confirmed at the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour that the titular role will be played by a woman, as it is traditionally performed. The network honcho revealed that Frozen star Kristen Bell was at one point considered for Peter, saying, “she was interested but she’s doing House of Lies. It’s tricky finding the right person in the schedule that we need but we’re actually close.” “I started my career in musicals,” Walken said in a statement, “and it’s wonderful after all this time, at this point in my career, to be in this classic musical I watched as a child and to work with Neil Meron and Craig Zadan again after Hairspray. It’s a chance to put on my tap shoes again.” A Great White Way family classic, Peter Pan premiered on October 20, 1954 at the Winter Garden Theatre, featuring a book by J.M. Barrie, music by Mark “Moose” Charlap and Jule Style, lyrics by Carolyn Leigh, Betty Comden and Adolph Green, direction and choreography by Jerome Robbins and Mary Martin in the lead role of the boy who won’t grow up. NBC has broadcast the musical live a total of three times previously: in 1955 (when it reached 65 million viewers), 1956 and 1960. The musical has been revived five times on Broadway since. Who’s the swiniest swine in the world? Oscar winner and Tony nominee Christopher Walken will headline NBC’s previously announced Peter Pan Live!. Walken will take on the role of the self-proclaimed “greatest villain of all time,” Captain Hook. The Peacock Network’s follow-up to the highly rated Sound of Music Live!, which starred Carrie Underwood along with many Broadway favorites, Pan will broadcast on December 4. Additional casting will be revealed at a later date.

Riot Games has announced its plan to consolidate its two current Latin American League of Legends competitions into a singular league – the name of which is yet to be announced.Eight teams will face off in this new league starting in 2019, playing in Santiago de Chile, Riot Games believes the location contains means that are “essential for the future of the scene”. Riot Games originally made a decision in 2016 to segment Latin America into North and South to increase “the relevance, audience and internal of each of the leagues.” As the announcement admits, it didn’t quite work out as expected.As it stands, Riot Games currently operates both the America South Cup (also known as Copa Latinoamérica Sur or CLS) and the Latin America North League (also known as Liga Latinoamérica Norte or LLN). Each league sees eight teams in contention to win, though when the leagues are brought together, there will only be room for eight teams. Riot Games are expected to reveal how these teams will be decided upon in the upcoming days – alongside the competition format and key dates for the league.The announcement explains the decision: “Latin America has a diverse and extremely rich culture, but we believe that esports fans share many similarities across the continent. The way in which an Argentine player passionately enjoys a final is not different from the excitement of a Mexican fan to see his favourite team devote champion, and that is reflected in each and every one of the countries that make up the region. Today we believe that dividing efforts, resources and fans into two scenes that share so much is not the best way.”Esports Insider says: Bringing the competitions together with the best teams from both North and South Latin America regions sounds ideal for providing the most competitive experience. Riot Games tried doing it another way and realised it perhaps wasn’t the best way, so we’re looking forward to seeing what they pull out of the bag for this unnamed league.
