|We're Going to "Wiz"|
Mary J. Blige & Queen Latifah
So NBC is reviving The W-I-Z.
That's correct, The Wiz is being, revived, woot! I remember seeing the original film starring Diana Ross as Dorothy and Michael Jackson as the Scarecrow. Oh, and let's not forget the late great Lena Horne as Glinda the Good. Directed by the great Sidney Lumet.
A lot of critics were divided, but I was completely spellbound. Hey "Ease On Down The Road" people.
Well current casting news on the NBC production eases like this: Queen Latifah as The Wiz and Mary J. Blige as Evillene, the Wicked Witch of the West.
Personally I can't wait for this! I love myself some Latifah and Blige!
Just say no to poppies!
