It’s looking like online fandoms will see a lot of familiar faces in Season 2 of “The New Adventures of Peter and Wendy.” Yesterday, Nerdist.com premiered a new trailer that reveals “Veronica Mars” and “iZombie” actor Percy Daggs III as Captain Hook — or rather, CEO Hook — in the web series modernization of J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan.
“Peter and Wendy,” starring Kyle Walters and Paula Rhodes, remagines Peter Pan as a loveable-but-immature guy from the small town of Neverland, and Wendy as an advice columnist who moves away to the big city. Daggs joins a list of new additions to the show for Season 2: Jim Beaver from “Supernatural,” Satya Bhabha from “New Girl,” and Meghan Camarena aka Strawburry17.
“This is different because it’s a format that I’m not really used to,” Daggs told Nerdist.com in an interiew. “They shot it vlog style where you speak directly into camera, and the style of comedy was a little different. And again, I’m playing Captain Hook so transitioning into the role, playing the CEO of a major company and a character that’s had such a long history and wanting to do that justice and do it my own way was very different.”
