NBC’s The Wiz Adds To Cast

The big names keep rolling in as NBC prepares to entertain with a modern and live version of The Wiz.

Though the main character, Dorothy, still remains a mystery, we’re sure the fact that Queen Latifah and Mary J. Blige will spark your interest as recently added cast members.

Ms. Mary J., who’s gained acting credits alongside Angela Bassett in the made-for-TV Lifetime movie, Betty and Coretta, will take on the role of Evillene, the Wicked Witch of the West.

Queen Latifah will transform into the Wiz. As announced earlier, NBC tapped Stephanie Mills to make her return to the production as Auntie Em.

NBC’s Live Production of The Wiz airs December 3.
