The hills are alive... with the sound of True Blood star Stephen Moyer, who has been tapped to play Capt. Georg Von Trapp in an NBC live stage production of the iconic holiday story The Sound of Music, multiple media sources confirmed. In the movie, Trapp falls for his governess Maria, who will be portrayed by country music star Carrie Underwood. The three-hour live staging of The Sound of Music is scheduled to premiere on NBC on December 5. Moyer, 43, gained musical experience early on in his career working in London theater and just last month appeared in a production of Chicago at the Hollywood Bowl.
