Watch Brian Williams Announce His Daughter’s Casting As NBC’s Peter Pan With A Unique Twist

Yesterday we brought you the news that Girls star Allison Williams had been cast as the lead in NBC’s upcoming live musical, Peter Pan Live. But her dad brought some things we couldn’t to his version of the announcement. Namely, the NBC Nightly News anchor desk, gravitas, and a childhood photo of Allison dressed as Peter Pan.

Above, watch Brian Williams drop the news of his daughter’s new gig with a short and sweet announcement. He seems pretty calm for a guy whose daughter is destined to be chased by a sword-wielding, tights-wearing Christopher Walken on national television.
