The feverish anticipation of season two of Orange is the New Black shows us that women in uniform get just as much love — even if they are wearing orange jumpsuits. Hoping to be next in line to get her own pair jail threads is Rosie O'Donnell, who pleaded for a role on Orange Is the New Black, but was subsequently turned down. Womp, womp. Even though we won't see her on the Netflix series, for now it's worth examining where she would possibly fit into the cast of quirky female prisoners.
On possibly playing a role on OITNB, O'Donnell said:
I begged. After I saw the first two episodes, I'm like 'Who do I call?' Let me get knifed in a shower -- someone give me a part on this.
Although this statement doesn't indicate whether O'Donnell would be cast as a good or bad guy, it clearly offers a glimpse into the type of character she's willing to play. Besides, determining whether she'd be good or bad might not be necessary, seeing as how all the characters straddle the fence between protagonist/antagonist due to their imprisonment for different degrees of crime.
Now, seriously: who else is super excited for season two?! Orange Is the New Black season two will premiere in full on Netflix on June 6.
