So that title kind of already covered it, but Uzo Aduba, who won an Emmy for playing “Crazy Eyes” on Orange Is the New Black, was just cast as Glinda in NBC’s The Wiz Live! While we love Aduba, this is definitely an… interesting choice. She’s a talented actress and we’re glad she’s not going to be type cast, but we’re a little confused. I don’t know if she’s the godmother type, but maybe she is. Aduba can lose herself in any role (as we’ve seen in OITNB) so she can probably become the legendary character. Even if she wasn’t really on our minds when we were coming up with a dream cast, we’re rooting for Uzo Aduba when she comes down in that pink bubble this December.
