Mike Birbiglia Danny Pearson Birbiglia may have played the insufferable Danny on Orange’s third season, but in real life he’s one of the funniest comics out there right now. He’s starred in three Comedy Central specials and released three comedy albums. Birbiglia also has rapid eye movement behavior disorder, which caused him to run out of a second-story motel window in , an incident he adapted for Sleepwalk with Me. Most notably, the two-time Tony nominee originated the role of Mrs. Potts in Beauty and the Beast and played Mrs. Lovett in the revival of Sweeney Todd. And her role on Orange isn’t even the first time Fowler has played a nun:
Samira Wiley & Lauren Morelli Engagement: Must
During her first lunch time she sits at the same table as Nicky, Lorna and Yoga Jones and starts to befriend them. Although Piper tries hard not to get on anyone’s bad side, she had a habit of saying the wrong things at the wrong time. Red , for instance, is the first person who suffers from her thoughtless words and in retaliation refuses to give Chapman any meals, as she is the head cook of the prison’s kitchen.
As well as insulting the food in front of the head cook, on Piper’s first day in prison she discovers that Alex Vause , her ex, is in prison with her and that she would have to deal with the person responsible for her incarceration.
For this reason, Nicky has disowned her mother, and now looks up to Red as a mother figure, to the point where she openly calls her “mom” in the presence of other inmates, and Red in turn openly treats her as if she were her daughter.
Orange is the new Black, or so I’ve been told I followed when I heard something about scaring kids. I saw Piper and Vause holding hands, making me want to vomit. Then Piper tried to be all gangsta when Black Cindy and Poussey went up to them. I was confused, as was Piper. Some other girls entered all excited and the female guard asked, “Are you gonna sign up? I saw the kids walking down the hall and rolled my eyes. Probably taking them to the cafeteria to scare them a little.
I went to the showers and washed up. Then I put my hair up in the classic ponytail do, before doing my make-up. Does this look like a nice place to shower? So we’ll be doing an act, huh? I chuckled and waited for Wanda to get our drift. The male COs, I mean.
“Orange is the New Black” writer divorces husband, dating star Samira Wiley
Before I get into discussing this season, I should mention that I was really reluctant to watch it — not because I could have at all foreseen what I would be put through in the ensuing 13 episodes, but because I have never found a protagonist as infuriating as Piper Chapman. Jenji Kohan seems singularly capable of crafting the most insufferable Oblivious White Woman TM characters of all time; by the end of her previous show Weeds, I was ready to drop-kick Nancy Botwin off the Brooklyn Bridge.
If only the nonsense stopped there.
Not even having Neri deliver a bag of flaming poop is enough to lift her mood.

Samira Wiley’s ‘OITNB’ writer girlfriend files for divorce from husband
The idea of TV being a downgrade from cinema has long since dissipated, and barely a week goes by without the announcement or arrival of a television project from an acclaimed talent or featuring A-list stars. The new world of small screen entertainment means that the traditional TV season is becoming less important, with some of the most popular or acclaimed shows arriving in the once-rerun-heavy summer months.
The rules are simple: Take a look, and let us know what your favorites have been in the comments.
Vee is the ultimate motherfucker, man!
In fact, in a risky experimental move, all 13 episodes of season five take place over just three days. Dascha Polanca as Daya Credit: Selenis Leyva as Gloria Credit: Netflix The brilliant Taystee Danielle Brooks is at the forefront of much of the drama, fervently leading negotiations with the authorities to try and get justice for her best friend Poussey — no mean feat when many of her fellow inmates are more concerned with getting their grubby hands on Cheetos than fighting the system.
Speaking of abhorrent, until now meth-heads Angie Julie Lake and Leanne Emma Myles have mainly been comedy sidekicks to some of the more serious characters. This season, their true, vile colours rise to the surface, with a taste of power turning them into monsters. Overall though — and particularly in the scenes involving Red Kate Mulgrew and captain of the guards Piscatella Brad William Henke — this season feels like a particularly well-written horror film, with so many increasingly macabre twists and turns that OITNB is starting to make Breaking Bad look like Teletubbies.
An Orange Is the New Black Season 3 Power Ranking
Andrea Reiher June 10, at It started out with a lot of intensity — it had to, after that season 4 cliffhanger — then pulled back, offered up some levity but also some important plot developments, and now has logged an excellent pivot for the halfway point of the season. All the story lines are really effective, showing the different ways people are coping and keeping busy. She is still really struggling with the events of the past few days and Abdullah realizes what she needs is routine and structure.
Listeners were not amused, and cases were brought.
All of her former friends stand around doing nothing. And why would they? The sweep was also unlucky for Nicky, who had to hide her heroin stash in full view of an angry Gina. Nicky, what are you doing? Nicky toys with the heroin for a bit, then hands it over to Red as Gina suggests, right at a moment when Red needs to believe and understand that people can change.
It was pretty fraught; Nicky could have easily slid down that hole, having just told us that heroin was her girlfriend, the thing she loved the most, but maybe remembering Tricia really did help change her mind. Vee is the ultimate motherfucker, man! She has her grimy hands in everything, and takes with force anything she finds profitable.

Orange is the new Black, or so I’ve been told Though I barely knew her, there’s no way Tricia hung herself! And Healy’s acting all smug and shit, pissing me off.
The L Word was accurate to a demographic of WEHO, yes; a group of friends, sure, but it had a major blind spot for butch women, and, more specifically, butch women of color.
Piper Chapman Taylor Schilling Piper Chapman played by Taylor Schilling is a woman who was sentenced to 15 months in Litchfield Penitentiary for helping her former girlfriend Alex Vause smuggle drug money in Europe several years before the first episode. The first season shows Piper’s journey through the prison system, beginning with her rough first week, during which she accidentally makes several enemies and struggles to adapt to life on the inside, as well as reuniting with Alex.
In prison, she acquires several other nicknames throughout the series. Piper is assigned a bunk with Claudette, who treats her rudely at first, but eventually warms up to her. She works in the electrical shop at the prison and inadvertently takes a screwdriver from the tool crib and loses it. She is initially considered non-threatening by most of the other inmates.
