"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.
