If the idea of Ben Affleck starring as Batman is enough to blow your gawddamn mind, prepare to have it DOUBLE BLOWN. True Blood‘s Stephen Moyer is set to star in NBC’s upcoming live production (taking place on December 5th) of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s classical musical The Sound of Music, alongside Carrie Underwood. Because when you think lavish Broadway musicals, you think of the undead guy who ripped Arliss Howard‘s head off while high on fairy blood. Via Access Hollywood

Yes, True Blood star Stephen Moyer, who plays Bill Compton on the HBO show, has been added to the cast of NBC’s upcoming live production of The Sound of Music! Stephen will play Captain Georg von Trapp, in the role made famous by Christopher Plummer.

Combining the worlds of The Sound of Music with True Blood? There’s only one way this can end …

Maria: The hills are alive with the sound of muuuuuusic!
Vampire Eric: (*Screaming from a hill*) OH GAWD! I’M ON FIRE! WHY AM I ON FIRE?
Maria: What the hell was that?
Vampire Eric: NAKED AND BURNING! I’M NAKED AND BURNING ON THIS HILL! WHO’D HAVE THOUGHT LIVING NAKED ON A HILL TOP COULD HAVE POSSIBLY BACKFIRED?
Maria: I feel like we’re going a long way for a joke with little pay-off.
Vampire Eric: I’LL BE BACK NEXT SEASON ANYWAY! SPOILERS!
