As December draws closer, we’re starting to hear more and more information about NBC’s The Wiz Live! And just today, we’ve gotten our first look at the cast.
Shanice Williams will play Dorothy Gale, David Alan Grier will play the Cowardly Lion, Ne-Yo will play the Tin Man, and Elijah Kelley will play the Scarecrow. The cast will also include Queen Latifah, Mary J. Blige, Amber Riley, Uzo Aduba, and the iconic Stephanie Mills who once played the role of Dorothy on Broadway.
The Wiz Live! will air on NBC on Dec. 3rd. This was one of my favorite movies as a kid, so I’m quite excited. I can’t wait!
