The film the Wiz was one of the greatest films ever created in my opinion and the entire cast did an amazing job with bringing the film to life but get this: Michael Jackson was the SECOND CHOICE for the role of the “Scarecrow.” Can you believe that? There was actually a very popular actor who was supposed to play the character at first and let’s just say he is probably the last person many of us would have expected.
