Our friends over at Fandango Cine asked the cast of Oz: The Great and Powerful which Latina actress they would cast as the next wicked witch (click on the image above for their answers).

Celebs React to Death of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, considered one of the most controversial leaders in Latin America, died March 5, according to Venezuela's Vice President Nicolas Maduro. Chavez came to power in 1999 and focused on implementing socialist reforms. Over the years Chavez became known for his outspoken ways as he criticized world leaders, including George W. Bush, and made a few Hollywood friends along the way including Sean Penn, Michael Moore, Kevin Spacey and Oliver Stone. Today, a few supporters and nonsupporters took to Twitter and the media to express their thoughts on Chavez's death. 

Sean Penn: "Today the people of the United States lost a friend it never knew it had. And poor people around the world lost a champion. I lost a friend I was blessed to have. My thoughts are with the family of President Chavez and the people of Venezuela." via The Hollywood Reporter

Maria Conchita Alonso: "I am so happy. I know that they say, 'Oh my God, that’s insulting. You can’t be happy [at] the death of someone. You don’t respect him.' I’m like, 'What? How many people did he kill? How did he destroy the country? Who did he respect? Who did he not abuse?' Of course I’m happy. God can forgive him, but I am not God. I’m very far away from being a saint. So, I won’t forgive him. I’m very happy." via Steve Malzberg Show

Oliver Stone: ''I mourn a great hero to the majority of his people and those who struggle throughout the world for a place. Hated by the entrenched classes, Hugo Chavez will live forever in history. My friend, rest finally in a peace long earned." via Twitter @ TheOliverStone

Michael Moore, who posted a photo of him meeting Chavez:  "You won't hear much nice about him in the US media in the next few days. So, I thought I'd say a couple things to provide some balance. Hugo Chavez declared the oil belonged 2 the ppl. He used the oil $ 2 eliminate 75% of extreme poverty, provide free health & education 4 all. That made him dangerous. US approved of a coup to overthrow him even though he was a democratically-elected President. Before they cheeleaded [sic] us into the Iraq War, the US media was busy cheering on the overthrow of Chavez. 54 countries around the world allowed the US to detain (& torture) suspects. Latin America, thanks 2 Chavez, was the only place that said no. he said he was happy 2 finally meet someone Bush hated more than him." via Twitter @ MMFlint
