Glad we put that rumor to rest. After the success of The Sound of Music Live!, starring Carrie Underwood, NBC announced (via Yahoo! News) that it planned to recreate the magic by broadcasting Peter Pan Live! this coming December. And when asked about potential castings, NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt exclaimed, “Miley Cyrus! I’ll be coy about that, too. We literally just started talking about it. We have to go to those actors before we talk about it in the press.”
However, tabloids have taken that statement to mean a bit more than probably intended. One recently wrote that a “friend” of the 21-year-old singer said, “Carrie could sing, but she just couldn’t act; that’s not a problem with Miley. And with her short haircut, she does resemble Tinker Bell! She could nab this role.”
Whether you were excited about the prospect or totally didn’t see it happening, here’s what the “We Can’t Stop” crooner had to say about the idea:
