Now I can’t wait to watch this!   NBC is presenting a live version of the hit 1978 musical ‘The Wiz’, with the help of many heavy hitter vocalists including Neyo, Mary J Blige broadway champ Queen Latifah!    NeYo will play Tin Man, Queen Latifah will play “The Wiz” and Mary J Blige has been cast as Evilene, Wicked Witch of the West. Other popular cast mates include Elijah Kelly (who was most recently in The Butler) who will play the beloved Scarecrow, David Alan Grier as the Cowardly Lion and newcomer Shanice Williams is Dorothy.   Guess who plays the Gatekeeper of OZ? Non-other than Common (*spoiler* it’s a non-singing role).    NBC's The Wiz, is set for Thursday, Dec. 3rd, 2015.   Source: hollywoodreporter.com/Image: idolator.com   Contributor: Charlene McCallum (follow on twitter: @CharleneCMCC)
