Freddy Nock Auditions For Sound Of Music Sequel By Walking Up Cable Car Rope

by | 22nd, August 2011

FREDDY Nock is shoo-in for the role of Captain Von Trapp in The Sound of Music 2 – 3D Smack Down. Knock is the Swiss stuntman who has passed an afternoon walking up a cable car rope in Germany.

He made it to the top of Germany’s 9,000 foot Zugspitze mountain in southern Bavaria. He says it’s the “longest and highest wire walk above sea level without a balancing pole“.

While the officials head to Ghana to check the value of that record, we hear you. Yep, Nock did not cross into free Switzerland from fascist Germany but left fascist Switzerland for free Germany.

As we say, this is The Sound of Music 2 – times have changed…
