'Orange Is The New Black' Husband Larry Smith Tells His Side Of The Story In 'My Life With Piper'
First it was the real-life Alex Vause, and now it's the real-life Larry Bloom that will get his chance to tell his side of the Orange is the New Black story. Piper Kerman's husband Larry Smith, played by Jason Biggs on the Netflix adaptation of her memoir, will release an audiobook December 16 titled My Life With Piper: From Big House to Small Screen . A short excerpt is now available on EW.com.
The Jason Biggs character has never been exactly a fan favorite on the show. Let's see... he used his wife's jail time as a means to an end to earn some writing chops and boost his career. Oh, and he (spoiler alert!) cheated on Piper while she was in prison — with her best friend, who was also married. But the Netflix show has taken creative liberties from Kerman's story, Orange Is The New Black: My Year in a Women's Prison, and the real Larry addresses some of these plot points, what it was like at home with Piper was in prison, and what it's like now watching an American Pie actor play himself.
In one excerpt, he talks about Pornstache (yes, he was real) and some of the rules of visiting time:
Though I have to say, this excerpt isn't exactly making me change my mind about Larry:
This audiobook isn't the first time Smith has had an opportunity to tell his side of the story. In real life and on the show, Smith is a writer, and he has written about his now-wife in the past, notably in a New York Times Modern Love column titled "A Life To Live, This Side Of The Bars."
