Christopher Plummer will try to fake interest during Sound of Music reunion on Oprah
Despite the widely known fact that Christopher Plummer referred to The Sound of Music as “The Sound of Mucus” and “S&M,” the Canadian actor will be reuniting with Julie Andrews and the cast that played the von Trapp kids on Oprah on October 29 to celebrate the musical’s 45th anniversary. Plummer doesn’t exactly hate the film, but he doesn’t consider it a highlight of his career. Perhaps he is hoping for a free trip to Australia.
It’s reported that Andrews won’t be singing on the show (she had throat surgery a decade ago and, sadly, no longer has a four-octave range), but the real-life von Trapp kids will be bringing their lederhosen and cherub voices to the final season of Oprah.
In the meantime, here’s a clip of an “alternative ending” to the musical courtesy of MadTV.
