by themselves and i guess -- >> seems like something should be. >> probably some child endangerment kind of laws that don't specify. like letting a kid wander out of a day care. clearly there's an issue there. >> can't leave them alone in the car. it's just -- >> we want to know what you think about this woman being arrested for that. we would like to hear what you have to say. if you wonder what prince william and harry will look at age 50, we might be able to show you. a hair transplant surgeon released the pictures. apparently both of these guys will be bald as cue balls. that's what they said. this is what they believe they're going to look like when they're 50. almost completely bald. that's going to be william. >> he doesn't look much different. i think he should buzz the whole thing off like matt did and like -- just say good-bye. >> yeah. >> and here's prince harry. let's look at -- >> oh, no. >> indeed.
>> i don't think he's going to be bald. i think he -- >> he looks like a different person. like sting a little. >> well that ain't bad. >> i know, but he doesn't -- >> some guarantee he could look like sting. all for it. >> speaking of facial hair, how about justin bieber's. justin bieber is trying to grow a mustache. >> he's 20. >> it's hard to see. >> yes. >> but it's there. we're going to zoom in. all right. >> oh, no, no, no. >> that looked like cody at 12. >> almost just have to shave that. that's not working at all. big announcement at nbc, we've told you that nbc is going to do a musical and it's going to be just like we did the "sound of music" with carrie underwood, we're going to do "peter pan." everyone said who is going to play peter pan? we can now tell you who it's going to be. are you ready? her name is allison williams. >> from "girls". >> yes. >> i think it's startling. she's got a musical background. >> go on-line, you guys. google allison williams' singing.
>> she's a terrific little singer. >> she's brian williams' daughter obviously. when you click on line, i remember the first time i heard her sing, i was like why doesn't she have a record, what's the story? she tweeted dreams do come true. anyway, so that's it. >> that's exciting. >> that's exciting. >> yes. >> it's going to be interesting, they're going to start like in august, which is a couple days from now. >> yeah. >> in their pre-production and it's going to air i think live december 4th. >> right. >> so they had to find an actress who was available for that amount of time. >> here. >> that's going to affect the "girls" show unless that's already in the can. similar to that but maybe not as earth shattering, tomorrow jenna bush hager is going to be with me because you're taking a trip. >> i'm taking my girls, by the way for are a pre-birthday trip. i'm excited about. >> you're going to tell everybody where you're going? >> bertha, that little tropical -- whatever it is, moisture in it right there. >> going somewhere around that bertha cloud. go on.

>> i have such mixed emotions. what he should maybe do is step out of it and say i'm the referee. you know, i'm a pro. then he can be a part of it without being always winning and always winning. >> i won. >> i get it. i mean i don't like to -- you know i don't like that stuff with my children, i want to be honest with them. because then if they don't trust you with little things, later they will not trust you with big things. i don't think you should tell your kids they're talented at something when they're not. i don't think that's going to give them the skills they need down the road for real life. i don't think every kid should get an award for showing you. >> lebron james wants to play horse with his kids and kids are little and he knows he can hit every basket from every side, i think it's cute sometimes to go, oh, my god you beat daddy. >> let them do it backwards or tiger do it with one hand. >> exactly. >> be honest and stop lying. >> exactly. >> to your children.
