‘Emerald City’ star Mido Hamada talks about his role Hamada can be seen on NBC’s “Emerald City” directed by Tarsem Singh where he portrays Eamonn, the right-hand man of The Wizard. Hamada was 8 years old when he first saw “The Wizard of Oz” in Germany. But it was “The Wiz” that left a lasting expression on him. “It was Michael Jackson playing the Scarecrow that left an impression on me,” he added. ”I was a huge Jackson Five fan.” Hamada is not quick to pick a favorite character from Emerald City. But if he had to pick – he would pick The Wicked Witch of the West.
