Let’s Judge Carrie Underwood As Maria In ‘The Sound of Music’

By: Kelly Lynch / September 16, 2013

Go Fug Yourself reminded me today that Carrie Underwood is scheduled to desecrate Maria’s good name in The Sound of Music on December 5th (8/7 c), when she reprises the role made famous by Julie Andrews in 1965 (Mary Martin gets honorable mention).

NBC announced more casting today for the live three-hour production, which also stars True Blood’s Stephen Moyer as Captain von Trapp.

 Audra McDonald will play Mother Abbess, Laura Benanti will play Elsa Schrader and Christian Borle (Smash) will play Max Dettweiler.

The hair braids are a little much, Carrie.
