PC: What can we look forward to you singing in the film?
MH: Well, I have a song with Lea Michele and Hugh Dancy which is really fun - it’s kind of like a Glinda-esque, soprano-y song where I am making fun of all my suitors and turning them away.
PC: SMASH meets Glee meets HANNIBAL!
MH: Oh, yeah, man! We’ve got it all in OZ! [Laughs.]
PC: What was Lea like?
MH: Oh, well, I have known Lea for a long time - since a long time ago. But, she is so lovely. We didn’t get to really do anything together on this, though, because when you record these things - we’ve been working on this movie for years - you never get to be in the same booth together. She is so great in the film, though. I am really excited that people are going to get the chance to see it soon.
