Zach Braff stars alongside James Franco in the Wizard of Oz prequel Oz the Great and Powerful. The film, which is set to hit theatres on March 7, features Braff as Franco's sidekick (a man named Frank, and his Oz incarnation as a monkey called Finley).

"Sometimes when you get asked to do something, there's pros and cons," he says. "There's absolutely no cons. It was like a dream. Sam Raimi who's work I love, James Franco, Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz, not to mention Disney, and not to mention the land of Oz...," the Scubs actor gushed.

He tells Giles Hardie about filming with Raimi and being a flying monkey in the magical world of Oz.
