    Red face Cast other ethnicity's versions of "The Wiz"

    Who would you cast in all Latino(a) or Asian-American versions?

    I think what Jizzelbin was saying is that it might be funny to cast Danny Trejo in every role (or ro^le, I guess) in an ethno-inclusive *Wiz*, including the short people and the women.

    I think also it's not really a problem, and is kind of amusing.

    Chill, man.

    Erictelevision finds people who refer to themselves in the 3rd person pretensious. He also finds threadshitters to be assholes.

    I'm not sure I know enough Latino or Asian actors and actresses to fill an entire cast of The Wiz. But George Lopez (Scarecrow?) and Margaret Cho (Dorothy or Glinda?) would be good places to start on each side of the ethnic fence.

    Sorry to bump but:

    The Asian version would use the cast of "Crazy Rich Asians".
