Veronica R. Sniezek: Such a hard decision! But I would have to say Christian Borle.

Jean Goldberg: Christian Borle.

John Perovich: Christian Borle

Xinhui Deng: Christian Borle!

Gladys Santiago: Christian Borle is the obvious choice!!

Amanda Rose Benjamin: Christian Borle! He played Black Stache in the prequel so why should he not play Hook?

Borle, currently on stage in the City Center Encores! production of Little Me, was recently seen as Max Dettweiler in NBC's live broadcast of The Sound of Music, which aired in December 2013. On Broadway he has been seen in Footloose, Legally Blonde: The Musical and Peter and the Starcatcher, for which he won a Tony for his portrayal of the Captain Hook-inspired Black Stache.
