Upon closer look at the subway stop billboard ad for the re-make of The Wiz, I was delighted to discover that Tichina Arnold (pictured right) is one of the stars. She'll be playing the villanous Evilene.
Tichina brilliantly plays Chris' mom in the Friday-night sitcom Everybody Hates Chris. The show is based on the life of comedian Chris Rock, who grew up in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Bed-Stuy in the 80s.
You may also remember Tichina from the days when she played the character of Pamela on the television show Martin.
