Lea Michele: 'Dorothy of Oz' Preview!

Check out this first look at Lea Michele hard at work on Dorothy of Oz!

The 24-year-old Glee actress dished to ET, “It’s just really nice to get to step into a different world for a little while. I thoroughly enjoy being at William McKinley High School Monday through Friday at ‘Glee,’ but it’s been really great to step into another world and play another character for a little while. It only makes the job that I do every day even more enjoyable.”

The film takes place where The Wizard of Oz left off, with Dorothy waking back up in Kansas after the tornado has destroyed her town. When she returns to Oz, she finds that the Scarecrow, Lion and Tin Man have disappeared, and it’s up to her – and some new and old friends – to defeat the evil Jester.

Dorothy of Oz is expected to hit theaters in spring of 2012!

I like her but I have a hard time seeing her as any other character besides Rachel Berry. I think other Glee-sters will have more successful Hollywood careers.

# 2

@Daria: You don’t even see her as her broadway character Wendla from Spring Awakening?

# 3

Many Spring Awakening Fans had a hard time seeing Lea Michele as any other character besides Wendla, sooo…….then came Glee (huge success, awards….) Lea Michele ´s career started way before Glee

@Daria: Well than I guess she will just have to record and /or do Broadway. She has only been working successfully for 15 years I don’t see that going away any time soon.

# 6

well that prove that she is a good actress, her rachel berry is great.
i watch spring awakening and i know what the others are talking about, she was just too amazing to words.
she is really talented.

# 7

i love her and she is a real talent, so i hope to her in movies soon.

# 8

It’d be nice if she would go back to Broadway. Anything so I don’t have to see that ugly mug every week, lol.

@Lauren: . So unnecessary. Are you always this nasty? Do you troll around looking to insult Lea or just anyone? Sad pathetic little person you are…

Don’t like her fine but no need to be an ass about it.

i think she is amazing talented, her rachel berry is wonderful played by her (golden globe nom to prove that). I would like to see her doing movies too, that would be cool.

@gaby: and Emmy nomination.

I like that someone with talent is getting notice. PLus that she is unique looking and pretty not some cookie cookie blond with questionable talent if any.

@Lauren: wow always has to be at least one fool.

Good Luck to you Lea.

@Lauren
If she is so offensive to you than why do you check out articles relating to her. Jealous much.

@joesph: agree with you, she can act and sing, and will be lovely see her in movies in the future.

Lea is so versatile that she’ll have a long career. It’s nice to see a young woman get famous and recognized for her talent rather than being a drunken embarrassment. Lea is a lovely, talented girl. I can’t wait to see what she’ll do in the future. I’ll see Dorothy of Oz just because she’s voicing it.

I love the Oz franchise. Will definitely see this. I can’t wait to see what Lea does next!

She is amazing, and this movie is going to be amazing. Just a hunch. Go back to your hole, Lauren!

I’m very excited to see how Lea Michele portrays Dorothy, not only is she a perfect match but her voice will be phenomenal as well. This movie is going to be incredible, cant wait to check it out.

I’m such a huge fan of the original OZ and I don’t think I will watch this at all…I am very sick and tired of Hollywood going in and using these one big time stars of the moment (yes I’m talking about Lea Michele) and taking such amazing classics like this and turning it into something different just so they can stick with the in crowd these days…JUST LEAVE IT ALONE HOLLYWOOD!!! and I’m very sick of this Glee everywhere I don’t see the big success in this at all… I’m sorry and you can dislike my comment all you want but I think I have a right to voice my opinion just as much as you are.
