You may have heard recently that Allison Williams of the HBO series Girls will be donning a pair of green tights and piloting the skies as Peter Pan in NBC’s live theatrical version of the story. While not everyone is getting behind the choice, she does have some big supporters.

His usual charm oozes through the piece, particularly the understated way that he acknowledges how proud Allison’s family is.

What about you other dads? What can’t you wait to see your children do?
