Rachel Weisz Will Play Our Evil Witch
Reasserting that Sam Raimi's definition of "witch" means "big-eyed, pouty-lipped, vampish brunette who you MIGHT guess is, like, Persian, maybe," Rachel Weisz has been added as a second witch to the director's Oz: The Great and Powerful. She'll be playing Evanora, a witch of the evil style who tries to lure over sister Theadora--played by the other big-eyed, pouty-lipped, vampish brunette who could be, like, I don't know, whatever Ben Kingsley is (if he isn't white?): Mila Kunis. Both will now star opposite James Franco's title character in the film, to be followed by a joint appearance in a new Paul Lynde Halloween Special from beyond his grave.
