There's two talented actresses so woefully underused in lead roles that it's a scandal. One is Carla Gugino, who brightens every film she's in, even in a supporting role. The other is Rachel Weisz, who brought her talent and good looks to 'The Mummy' franchise, 'The Constant Gardner' and 'The Lovely Bones,' among others, and is now, thankfully, in negotiations for a very, very meaty role: Evanora, one of the evil witches in Disney's 'Oz: The Great and Powerful.'

The prequel of sorts to 'The Wizard of Oz,' directed by Sam Raimi, already has James Franco and Mila Kunis on board in key roles.
