Here’s some more news from Litchfield.
The absolutely not canceled Netflix hit Orange Is The New Black has added comedian Mike Birbiglia to the cast.
The Hollywood Reporter says that Birbiglia will appear on the upcoming third season in a “recurring role” – but not much else is known about his participation. Birbiglia himself has confirmed the casting, retweeting THR’s scoop on Twitter.
Despite the viral legs of a stupid rumor last month that the show had been canceled due to a spat between creator Jenji Kohan and Netflix CEO Reed Hastings, season three shooting is already underway.
Birbiglia, a standup comedian, actor, and director, recently wrote,, directed, and starred in the well-received Sleepwalk with Me. If you want to familiarize yourself with his work before season three of OITNB, you can stream that on Netflix, along with his comedy special My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend.
