The cast of Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black is one of the most inspiring, genius collections of acting talent currently out there. The Litchfield Penitentiary inmates make up one of the most diverse casts ever on TV, but their personal CVs also run the gamut. The cast includes everyone from seasoned performers like Golden Globe nominated actress Kate Mulgrew (Red) and jazz singing Broadway star Lea DeLaria (Big Boo) to break-out stars like Laverne Cox (Sophia) and Samira Wiley (Poussey). But one common thread that connects the bevy is the American treasure known as Law and Order (cue the “dun dun” noise.)
Thirty-one of the members of the OITNB cast have run into the law on a variety of the crime drama’s franchises. From prostitutes and victims on SVU to district attorneys and unsuspecting mothers on Criminal Intent. With thanks to Autostraddle’s amazingly comprehensive guide, we found each Netflix star’s best moments from the iconic show.
