Casting Room: Iggy Azalea Speeds Up and Allison Williams Goes (Peter Pan) Live!

By  July 30, 2014

Before new shows and movies are on your radar, they’re being planned, executed, and put into motion by production teams far and wide. Each week, Glam is going to give you the rundown on your favorite celebrities and their new gigs, from Hollywood’s rising stars to Broadway’s top talents. Welcome to the Casting Room.

This week, we learned that a “Fancy” feline and a Brooklyn girl have earned some major on-air cred. Iggy Azalea, MTV’s new House of Style host, will be making her silver screen debut in Fast & Furious 7, while Girls star Allison Williams will put her pipes to use as Peter Pan in NBC’s live musical production this December. We wonder if her dad, Brian Williams, had anything to do with that.
