“NBC announced recently they’re planning a live televised production of the musical Peter Pan, and what’s interesting about that is Peter Pan will be played by the very talented Allison Williams who is a woman, she’s on the HBO show Girls,” Kimmel said. “That’s great, but tonight I have the honor of announcing that my network, ABC, has decided to top them. On November 3rd, we will be having a live production of the musical Annie, and here tonight to give us a sneak preview, the actor who will be playing the lead role of little orphan Annie – Mr. Ed Sheeran!”
