Ya know Trixie, I THOUGHT about Angelina in that role but went with Charlize Theron because she's an Oscar winner, her role in Monster fits the mold because THE most scary movie character to EVERY kid is the Wicked Witch. And she's so tall and could be ominous over innocent looking Natalie Portman. Bill Murray, not Jack Black. I like Johnny Depp as the Scarecrow, good choice. How about broad shouldered George Clooney for Tin Man. I want Robert Redford as the Wizard and one last teeny small part as Uncle Henry for Paul Newman. AT the very end where Dorothy is in bed and Zeke Hunk and Hickory all show up in the room to check on her and the Wizard, Professor Marvel looks in the window to check on her. One last time, if only for me, as he gets to the window, looks at Uncle Henry and does the swipe of the nose signal like they did in the Sting...

P.S. Reese Witherspoon is Glinda or this movie is NOT getting made
