Looks as though the studio won!

We reported recently that both Michelle Williams and Hilary Swank were competing for The Wicked Witch of the East in Sam Raimi's upcoming prequel to The Wizard of Oz, called Oz, The Great and Powerful. The director had wanted Swank for the role, and Disney wanted Williams.

However, when Rachel Weisz was officially cast in the part, we thought perhaps they had met in the middle, but apparently, we were misinformed, as the other ladies were actually being considered for Glinda the Good Witch, and as of today, Williams has signed on to play her!

The film will focus on James Franco as a snake-oil salesman who is transported to Oz, and teams up with Glinda to fight her evil sisters, the other being played by Mila Kunis, which will ultimately lead to him becoming the 'Great and Powerful' wizard we all know from the original!

Inneresting! We think Michelle will make an EXCELLENT addition to the cast! She brings a lot of depth to every character she plays, so we're excited to see what she does with the part!

What do U think?? Are U excited Michelle Williams is Glinda??

    Re: MarioMonjack – You are a pathetic human being. WTF are you doing with your life that you feel you are in a position to call a 2 time oscar nominated actress a nobody? Judging from all of the spelling errors in your relatively short post I'm going to guess that you are the one who always asks "would you like fries with that" whenever I'm having to yell into that damn drive through speaker thing. Da da da da da, I'm lovin it…

    I wish she would talk like an american instead of faking some stupid accesnt, and that dumb ass look she forces, to parese her lips, get the fuck over yourself. Dawson's Creek, banging Heath, a couple of parts she was carried in, and now she's Meryl Fucking Streep.
