It looks like more of our favorite actors will be easing on down the road in NBC’s The Wiz LIVE!
It has already been announced that Queen Latifah and Mary J. Blige will be a part of the cast, but now we can get excited to see Glee’s Amber Riley and Orange is the New Black’s Uzo Aduba in the production as well. Amber will be playing Addaperle, the Good Witch of the North and Uzo will be playing Glinda, The Good Witch of the North. Unfortunately, this casting shuts down the rumors that Beyonce would be playing the role of Glinda. Sorry, Beyhive.
The most important role of them all has been filled! Dorothy will be played by newcp,er Shanice Williams. This looks to be a very promising production!
In addition to these amazingly talented ladies, veteran comedian, David Alan Grier will be playing the Cowardly Lion. As for the Scarecrow and Tin Man, we’re all still waiting for the announcement. By the looks of things, they are sure to be A-listers as well.
Who do you think should be included as the Scarecrow and Tin Man?
The Wiz LIVE! is set to air December 3 at 8 P.M. Eastern on NBC.
