Against my will, I’ve been taking it slow with Orange Is the New Black. Season one consumed me, and I want nothing more than to go into a Netflix hole for one unbathed, pizza-filled weekend of season two, but my schedule just hasn’t allowed it. So when Netflix starts getting me all excited over casting news for season three before I’m even out of the season two woods, the strain on my little obsessive heart is just too much. Especially when that news is really f*cking awesome.
Mary Steenburgen announced her addition to the cast today on Twitter.
Very excited to go to my first wardrobe fitting of OITNB! Will I be in orange or black?:)— Mary Steenburgen (@MarySteenburgen) June 12, 2014
To me, Mary Steenburgen is the epitome of old school class, and in my mind she is always wearing a dainty hat.
So I’m REALLY hoping she’s gonna go as far against type as possible and play a fully bedraggled inmate. I’m going to make a suggestion for Red’s estranged hard-ass sister.
