Beyoncé Is In Talks to
Star in NBC's 'The
Wiz' — Find Out the
Role She's Up For!
Beyoncé might be easing on down that yellow brick road!
E! is reporting the Grammy winner has been eyed for a major role in NBC's production of The Wiz.
Just when we doubted that this musical could get any better, the 33-year-old was offered the greatest role of all — Glinda the Good Witch! All hail Queen Bey, because she would totally slay that part!

We have seriously high hopes for this production and its level of awesomeness.
They have already signed both Mary J. Blige, 44, and Queen Latifah, 45 — SO this musical is sure to be packed with powerhouse acts! MJB has taken on the role of the Wicked Witch of the West, and Queen Latifah will be playing the part of the Wizard.
Though it is not confirmed whether or not Bey is definitely joining the cast — we can keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best!
The Wiz will air Dec. 3. on NBC.
