Beyoncé May Be Starring In “The Wiz”

Splash News

NBC’s production of The Wiz won’t be short on star power.  According to an E! News report, our beloved Queen, Beyoncé Knowles, has been offered the role of Glinda the Good Witch.

Production sources tell the publication that Knowles has not officially accepted the role and that casting directors are considering “Orange Is The New Black” star Uzo Aduba for the part in the event that Bey declines.

While witnessing Bey in a live musical would be amazing, seeing our girl Uzo step into this role would be quite the treat as well.

As previously reported, Mary J. Blige and Queen Latifah have been cast as Evilene, the Wicked Witch of the West, and the Wizard, respectively.

NBC has declined to comment on the casting rumors, but we will continue to keep you posted with any new developments.
