A good rule for any actor / actress: don't mess with the classics. That's the rule country star Carrie Underwood is learning the hard way. Airing LIVE on December 5th on NBC, Carrie is undertaking Julie Andrews' iconic role of Maria von Trapp in The Sound of Music.
The original film was released in 1965, and is considered one of the best Broadway film adaptations of all-time. Ever since Carrie agreed to reprise the role, she's received criticism. Talking with Entertainment Weekly, Carrie says, "I get hate tweets and stuff like, 'You're not Julie Andrews!' I know I'm not Julie. Nobody is and I would never pretend that I was. I know my place."
Will NBC's The Sound of Music be a gigantic mess?

Okay, so maybe I'm showing my age, but is anyone else excited about this news?! Reminds me of staying home from school sick, watching Jessica Fletcher aka Angela Lansbury solving murders! According to Deadline, NBC has ordered a revival pilot of Murder, She Wrote with The Help actress Octavia Spencer in the lead!
Deadline reports the spinoff will be a "light, contemporary procedural in the vein of Bones or Fargo" following "a hospital administrator and amateur sleuth who self-publishes her first mystery novel." Of course, the book leads to Spencer's character getting involved with real investigations in her hometown.
Can't wait. Maybe a cameo from Lansbury?!

Talking with TV Guide, Kenan points out that the show hasn't had a black female cast member since Maya Rudolph departed the show six years ago.
