Harry Connick Jr. Will Play Daddy Warbucks In “Annie Live!” On NBC

Harry Connick Jr. is the latest to sign on for the upcoming Annie Live! special on NBC, as Oliver “Daddy” Warbucks.

“It’s such a classic show and it’s a show that I’m so familiar with, just from seeing it a million times,” “And it’s one of those things where you watch it and enjoy it and never really imagine yourself a part of it, so when I was asked to play Daddy Warbucks it was kind of surreal because that’s such an iconic role.” 

“It wasn’t something I ever really thought about,”  “I was just thrilled that I was asked to do it.”

So far, only Connick Jr. and Taraji P. Henson (as Miss Hannigan) have formally signed on for the live musical, which will air on NBC in December.
