Just recently we found out about Mary J. Blige and Queen Latifah joining the cast of the remake of the 1978 ‘The Wiz.” Mary J. Blige will play Evillene, the Wicked Witch of the West while Queen Latifah will play the wizard. It has been reported that the Queen Bey has been asked to play Glinda the Good Witch. Beyonce’s name came up and why not? She is one of the biggest names in entertainment right now and even has experience in acting.
“She’s definitely no stranger to musicals on film (anyone remember a little movie called Dreamgirls?,” E Reports.
The deal is not set in stone yet and producers are still looking for other people for the part including “Orange is The New Black’s”Uzo Aduba.
