Grammy Award winner Carrie Underwood and British actor Stephen Moyer (“True Blood”) pair up as Maria and Captain von Trapp in NBC’s world premiere television event, “The Sound of Music Live!” The live telecast airs December 5 at 8 p.m. EST and is based on the stage version of the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical. On location on Long Island, the stars opened up about what has been going on behind-the-scenes while rehearsing for the show, and how being part of The Sound of Music has brought back some childhood memories:
“It was always so special when [The Sound of Music] would come on TV and my mom and I would watch it,” Carrie Underwood told us. “I think those memories are some of the best memories from my childhood… so I’m very happy and very honored to be a part of this.”
Hear from Carrie, Stephen, and other cast members Christian Borle, Audra McDonald, and Laura Benanti, plus find out what some of the cast’s favorite things are in the video below!

This weekend, “Hunger Games” star Josh Hutcherson will host “Saturday Night Live.” We ventured to Studio 8H, where Hutcherson admitted that hosting SNL during the same weekend of the release of his new movie “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” makes this the best week ever.
“I can’t believe that this week is actually happening,” he told us. “It’s the number one week of all time. SNL is something that every actor dreams of getting to do and on top of that, to have Hunger Games coming out at the same time, it doesn’t seem real.”
But did he get any hosting advice from “Hunger Games” pal and former SNL host Jennifer Lawrence? Maybe not. “She gave me the most cliché non-helpful advice ever gotten,” Hutcherson joked. “I got no real inside information from her!” That aside, he told us that he’s been enjoying his week working with the SNL cast, which he calls “comedy kings of the world.”
Hear all about it in our video and make sure to tune in to “Saturday Night Live” this weekend at 11:30/10:30c on NBC.
