Guess Who's playing Capt. Von Trapp to Carrie Underwood's Maria in The Sound of Music | Carrie Underwood, Stephen Moyer

Stephen Moyer to Join Carrie Underwood on TV's Sound of Music

The hills are alive … especially at night.

Stephen Moyer, best known as the vampire Bill Compton on HBO's True Blood, will play Capt. Von Trapp to Carrie Underwood's Maria in the live, three-hour NBC production of the beloved Rodgers and Hammerstein musical The Sound of Music, to air Dec. 5, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Depending on how dedicated you are to the 1965 film version of The Sound of Music – which starred Julie Andrews as Maria and Christopher Plummer at the Captain – this may or may not be music to your ears.

English actor Moyer, 43, recently played the role of crooked lawyer Billy Flynn in a Hollywood Bowl production of the musical Chicago. Now he is set to portray the stern Austrian widower who falls for the bubbly governess of his seven children, to be played by Underwood, 30.

Teen Choice Awards: Top 5 Moments

It was a night all about choice! The 2012 Teen Choice awards saw surfboards given to fan-chosen actors, actresses and singers. And, of course, they had some choice words and moments of their own Sunday night at Los Angeles's Gibson Amphitheatre. In case you missed the tween-tastic action, here are the highlights:

1. Twilight Gives Back
For once, the Twilight smash franchise wasn't just winning awards – the stars were giving them away!

After Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner picked up their surf boards for their on-screen performances, the leading vampire was feeling rather generous.

"I don't know if I'm allowed to – can I give this to the audience?" Pattinson asked, before handing his summery prize to fans in the audience. Stewart then followed his example and also gave away her award.

Octavia Spencer and Christopher Plummer have new fireplace mantel adornments – Oscars!

After a splashy opening with host Billy Crystal and bestowing honors in technical categories, the 84th annual Academy Awards finally got down to the business of presenting its first acting honor Sunday night. Octavia Spencer, whom Las Vegas oddsmakers gave a 70-percent chance of winning, did just that, taking the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her turn as the rebellious maid Minnie Jackson in The Help.

"I'm freakin' out," said the actress, who received the first standing ovation of the evening. Choking back tears, then finally unable to control their flow, Spencer, 32, said she needed to thank all her families: the one in her native Alabama, the one in L.A., her Help family. She also thanked the Academy for letting her sit next to the hottest guy in the room – Tate Taylor, director of The Help.

Michelle Williams, The Artist Win Big at Indie Spirit Awards

Michelle Williams has another trophy to put on her mantel.

The My Week with Marilyn star earned best female lead for her on-screen transformation into dazzling blond icon Marilyn Monroe Saturday at the 27th annual Independent Spirit Awards. Accepting the award, she joked about how she wore "her own clothes" and cut "her own hair" when she came to the ceremony for the first time 10 years ago.

Williams, 31, already took home a major win for the role at the Golden Globe Awards and, come Sunday, she might have another prize for her shelf after the Academy Awards.

But the Indie Awards's biggest winner was The Artist, which took home the afternoon's top honor, best feature.

POLL: Who Should Win the Best Supporting Actor Oscar? | Christopher Plummer, Jonah Hill, Kenneth Branagh, Max von Sydow, Nick Nolte

Oscars 2012: Who Should Win Best Supporting Actor?

Originally posted 02/24/2012 12:40PM

Hard to believe, but with so many notable roles under their belts over the past several years, Best Supporting Actor Oscar nominees Kenneth Branagh, Nick Nolte, Christopher Plummer and Max Von Sydow have never grabbed the gold.

That is likely to change Sunday night – for one of them. Or, in an upset, possibly for the much-younger Jonah Hill.

And while the smart money is on either Oscar-less octogenarian Christopher Plummer, for his Screen Actors Guild-winning turn as a father who comes out sexually late in life in The Beginners, or Max Von Sydow, as a contemporary man who still suffers the effects of WWII in Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, no nominee can be counted out in this race.

This round goes to Meryl Streep.

As the race to Oscar night continues, the best actress competition took another turn Sunday when The Iron Lady star took home top honors at the Orange British Academy Film Awards for her portrayal of Margaret Thatcher in the Franco-British biopic.

Streep, 62, who stumbled with one of her shoes as she headed to the stage – "That couldn't be worse," she said while accepting her award – told the audience she was "very proud" of her film, according to The Telegraph.
