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.

Most people have nightmares about being naked in public, but not True Blood's Rob Kazinsky. In fact, he looks forward to it.

"The idea of being naked on screen was really intimidating," the British actor, 29, tells PEOPLE about filming love scenes for his new role as the "half-fairy," Ben Flynn, on the HBO vampire hit. "But after your first time it becomes really fun and incredibly freeing and empowering."

Kazinsky admits that his foray into the frequent nudity on the Sunday night series was made all the easier thanks to his costar in the scene, Anna Paquin.

Stephen Moyer Loves Directing His True Blood Costars Naked

Originally posted 06/13/2013 04:00PM

Stephen Moyer has been stripping down for years on True Blood. But for some episodes of the new season, he was in charge of getting his costars naked, too – and found that just as enjoyable.

"It was a lot of fun doing three hours of makeup and getting into complete red-blob land, and then directing my fellow actors naked. That was a lot of fun," Moyer said Tuesday at the HBO vampire show's season 6 premiere at Hollywood's Cinerama Dome at the Arclight.

Moyer, 43, who tries his hand at directing this season – which kicks off Sunday (9 p.m. ET) – says he's very understanding with the other actors when it comes to the pressure of baring all for the cameras.

She's not yet introduced them formally to the world, but True Blood actress Anna Paquin found time for a Sunday family stroll in Los Angeles with her 2-month-old fraternal twins.

Paquin, 30, was joined by her mom, Mary Paquin, on the post-Thanksgiving outing, as they took in some fresh air with her son and daughter, born in September. Dad is her costar and husband, fellow TV vampire Stephen Moyer.

The Hollywood couple has yet to reveal the names of the twins and have thus far kept their sweet faces private, even as photographers have caught them frequently strolling near their Venice, Calif., home. – Andrea Billups
