‘Oz The Great And Powerful’ Open Casting Call Announced, plus Michelle Williams signs on to play Glinda

Anyone who reads OLV on even a semi-regular basis knows I love Dawson’s Creek and all of the show’s alums so you can imagine how excited I was when it was announced earlier today that Michelle Williams has joined the cast of Oz The Great and Powerful.

In the Wizard of Oz prequel, James Franco will play a traveling salesman who finds himself in the magical land, along with Mila Kunis as the young witch Theadora, Rachel Weisz as her evil sister Evanora and now Michelle Williams will play Glinda, the good witch who teams up with Franco’s character to battle for control of Oz.
