Who Will Be The Wicked Witch Of The East In Oz: The Great And Powerful?

| Filed under: Film FlickersDisneyJames FrancoHilary SwankMichelle WilliamsMila Kunis


Shiz! We think BOTH of these ladies would do a great job!

Sam Raimi is apparently at odds with Disney producers over the casting of the Wicked Witch of the East in his upcoming production of Oz: The Great and Powerful starring James Franco in the title role, as the former is determined to secure Hilary Swank and the studio wants Michelle Williams!

Meanwhile, Mila Kunis is widely expected to take the part of the Wicked Witch of the West!

Hot damn, this cast is going to be sick, regardless of which one is offered the East part!

Who do U think should get it? Hillary or Michelle?

    Michelle keeps getting uglier as the months pass I see.

  2. 2

    … and who will play the evil female impersonator (I don't remember that character?).

    As much as I love Michelle… Hillary would make a much better witch.

  5. 5

    I vote for Hilary Swank. it's the teeth! She has that look of witchy-ness.

  6. 6

    I like Michelle Williams…I think she'd be good in the part, but the question is-can she sing? I've seen the movie so many damned times (yes, ironic-I live in the damned state)

  7. 7

    Michelle doesn't seem to be aging well, or maybe is the photo….

    I bet Hillary gets really wet, and I do not want her lady lips to melt.

    I might go with Sam Raimi's wishes on this as he's directing this film, and Swank is soooo good that they may as well work with him on a win/win instead of a stupid power struggle. I doubt William's demographic would turn out for this in big numbers anyway. It would be more Swank's demographic that would bring their kids to this.

    So, are they going with a Wicked-ish story line? WWof the East just had her feet in Wizard of Oz and Michelle Williams might be able to pull that off…As much as it pains me, I think Hillary would be the better choice.

  11. 11

    I can't see Michelle Williams in the role only b/c she likes doing a lot of indie films. This seems to main stream for her. I would prefer Hilary Swank.

    I think Hillary would be awesome for the job but if Mila Kunis get the gig I would be delighted. She is my fav.

  14. 14

    seeing so Mila Kunis is playing the Wicked Witch of the West…Hilary would be the obvious choice to play her sister the Wicked witch of the East as they look alike

  15. 15

    Hillary would be great. Michelle is lovely and I see her more as a good witch, not a wicked one.

  16. 16

    both michelle and hilliary would be good i think mila isnt a good enough actress to pull it off shes not talented enough yet. shes only played dopey roles so far and didnt do it for me in black swan she looked tired and croaky

    Hillary for sure.

  18. 18

    michelle is too sweet to be wicked!! i love her be hilary would be awesome to see in this role!!

  19. 19

    What? No Anne Hathaway? I vote for her!

  20. 20

    I vote michelle over hillary…

  21. 21

    Re: ALTvchick – I want Anne too!

  22. 22

    Hillary 100 %

  23. 23

    I have a strange feeling that Anne Hathaway is probably going to stay away from anything involving working with James Franco for a while…

    Nice - use of the Office for that quote and joke! But…let's not be so devolved that animals are a suitable comparison for anyone. She's a gorgeous woman, they all are! And they each seem quite skilled at their craft to say the least. This seems a bit of pre-production hoopla to aid in the continued interest in this film. Which, the film alone could accomplish that fine without this.

    I say make Michelle the WWW, make Hillary the WW of the Eest. Nessarose is meant to be grogeous, despite her complicated medical needs, and well sought after. blond, thought of as pious and kind in her youth who may She also grew up there…whatever. LoL My point is - WWE Michelle Williams, WWW being Idina Mezel (kidding…but crying that it won't be….) Swank, Williams and Franco. You'll get the parents, the kids, the teenagers and young adults, the 20-30 range who know who Williams is and likes her. Swank is going to bring older people in because of her credentials especially havin won the Oscar. And yes, Michelle is just as talented. When does this come out?!

    Re: sh@olinfxx – what sarah jessica parker is being considered too?

  28. 28

    I'm for Swank! My dad lives there and I am across the stateline so we get mostly what they get. Right now it's raining and making lots of noise!!

    I've watched Oz since childhood. Yes, I will take my daughter to see this.
