Casting The 'Wicked' Miniseries (PHOTOS)

Get out your ruby red slippers: ABC is cooking up an eight-hour miniseries based on Wicked, the popular book that reimagined The Wizard of Oz and spawned a mega-production on Broadway.

Unlike the beloved movie version, Wicked is all about the witches before they met Dorothy - Elpahaba, the rebel green broom-rider who later becomes the Wicked Witch of the West and Galinda, her best pal who's later known as the Good Witch. Casting these super-big roles is sure to be a challenge, so Celebuzz is pitching in with some casting suggestions!

Click through to see where we think Miley, Selena, Beyonce and more fabulous celebs should fall in the land of Wicked. For more casting fun, check out our photo gallery Casting the New Wizard of Oz.

    I think she looks hideous with all her piercings, tattoos and raccoon eye makeup. She'd be perfect as a wicked witch.

    to the first commenter - Galinda, who becomes Glinda, is present in the book and the musical. As far as "good girl gone bad" characterization of Elphaba, celebuzz has it wrong. Elphaba is protrayed in both the musical and the book as being kind, although she is in the wrong place at the wrong time and blamed for events that she didn't take part in, and people prejudice against her because she is green and can master sorcery. Exactly. Elphaba was just a scapegoat for a corrupt system in many cases, and the shoes were precious to her, and rightfully hers as well. BTW, in the story Elphaba is spelled wrong.
