Stephen Moyer, star of HBO’s True Blood, has been cast as “Capt. Georg von Trapp,” the single father who hires Carrie’s character “Maria” to care for his seven children.
Carrie tweeted the news of the U.K. actor’s casting is “so exciting!!!” Even though fans have to wait until Dec. 5 to see the production live on NBC, Carrie begins rehearsals very soon.
The Sound of Music is “my entire fall,” she tells Billboard. “I’ll be living in New York for a couple months. It’s all live, so it is going to take a lot of rehearsals. It will be a couple of solid months working on it for one big night.”
Carrie’s concert DVD Blown Away Tour: Live is available now.
