Zach Braff has a certain sad-eyed amiability that many folks find quite pleasant. Now it seems like one of those folks is director Sam Raimi, whose project Oz: The Great and Powerful is picking up steam. Here’s a description of the role, which will now come prepackaged with that special Zach Braff feeling:

“Braff will play the role of Frank, the loyal but under-appreciated assistant to Oz (James Franco), a charismatic circus magician who is treated as a powerful wizard after his balloon blows off course into Oz and the townsfolk want him to eradicate a Wicked Witch and bring peace.”

Boom. Not only do you now know the character Braff is playing, but you also know what the movie is about, and that James Franco is in it. Boom.  More infobombs: Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams, and Rachel Weisz are all in it too. Can you handle all this information? (Deadline)
