    Not sure how I feel about it. Yes, she has a strong voice, but acting, not sure. It’s not the person I would have chosen. Not top 10 or 20 even. At least it isn’t Taylor?

    I love the movie as much as any other fan…

    HOWEVER…if this production manages to be more faithful to the original stage version than the movie, then I wouldn’t mind.

    Hopefully Carrie Underwood can lose the Southern accent?

    And why would you even mention Taylor? She’s like 22. She would be way too young. Unnessecary bash.

    Another popular country/pop queen. Just saying her voice isn’t as strong as Carrie’s

    Why coldn’t they hire an actress who has experience acting………. There are so many good actors out there in need of a “big break”

    I agree..a terrible idea…bordering on insane.
    Just heard her sing the title song on some CBS special..
    She was nervous, but showed no emotion at all…
    There’s no way she can pull off a miracle of acting.
    Even if Hugh Jackman got the role of Captain Von Trapp,
    this will be awful….
    Leave it alone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    To be fair, Carrie was really sick at the CBS taping.  Also she’s a lot better at performing now than she was five years ago.  Now her acting I don’t know.  I thought she was okay in “How I Met Your Mother” but bad in “Soul Surfer.” 

    So to be clear this isn’t a movie remake right?  If I’m right, it’s just a live stage production that’s going to be on tv.  I’m willing to give it a chance as long as they aren’t trying to recreate the movie.

    Yes, you’re right.

    That’s what I understand as well. This will be a live production of the stage version. Someone in the comments section of EW suggested an actress on a current NBC show to portray Maria and has played her on Broadway before and is a Tony award winner, Laura Benanti of Go On.

    I like this casting choice. Underwood has one of the most amazing voices in music right now, but I do agree we’ll have to see how she does with the acting. But I have faith that she will do just fine.

    I’m just curious as to who else they’re going to cast. Speaking of T-Swift, she’s too young for Maria, but they could always get her to play Liesl. LOL

    As for Captain von Trapp, theres’ so many interesting choices they could make.

    They’ll probably cast someone like Adam Levine.

    Awesome! I’m sure she’ll do just great. She has some acting in her!
