The Cast of Orange Is the New Black Looks Way Different in Other Roles
We're psyched that Orange Is the New Black has returned for a seventh and final season, and it has us thinking about our favorite inmates out of the prison. We've seen them out of character during award shows, but what about their other movie and film parts? Here are the ones that might make you see these actors in a whole new light.
Taryn Manning as Tiffany "Pennsatucky" Doggett
Hustle & Flow
OITNB isn't the first time Manning has played a girl from the streets. Check out her performances in 8 Mile and Hustle & Flow to see shades of Pennsatucky. She's also juggled roles on Sons of Anarchy and Hawaii Five-0.
Laura Prepon as Alex Vause
That '70s Show
Prepon has starred in TV shows like October Road and Are You There, Chelsea, but without a doubt, she's mostly known for That '70s Show. If you want to spend the off-season watching her play an actual nice person, you can watch all eight seasons on Netflix!
Natasha Lyonne as Nicky Nichols
But I'm a Cheerleader
Lyonne really broke out in the 1999 cult classic But I'm a Cheerleader, another project with a strong LGBTQ point of view. Rent it if you can, but if not, she's been in a number of recent projects.
Danielle Brooks as Tasha "Taystee" Jefferson
Check out the third season premiere of Girls, in which she plays a girl in rehab with Jessa. It's a small part, but it's pretty scandalous, much like OITNB. You may have also heard her in the movie version of Angry Birds.
Kate Mulgrew as Galina "Red" Reznikov
Star Trek: Voyager
You can watch Mulgrew on all seven seasons of Star Trek: Voyager on Netflix right now. Though she had starred in a whopping 408 episodes of the soap Ryan's Hope in the '70s and '80s, it's probably her role as Captain Kathryn Janeway that most fans recognize her for.
Taylor Schilling as Piper Chapman
The Lucky One
Schilling was a relative newcomer to show business when she scored the role of Piper. In 2012, she starred opposite Zac Efron in The Lucky One and played wife to Ben Affleck in Argo.
Dascha Polanco as Daya Diaz
Dascha Polanco on Russian Doll
Polanco appeared as a recurring character on season one of Netflix's Russian Doll alongside her OITNB costar Natasha Lyonne.
Yael Stone as Lorna Morello
Me, Myself, I
Stone got her start in the 1999 film Me, Myself, I. That hair!
Nick Sandow as Joe Caputo
One Night Stand
Here he is in a Wesley Snipes movie from 1997! He kind of looks like Bradley Cooper here, no?
Elizabeth Rodriguez as Aleida Diaz
All My Children fans probably recognize Rodriguez from her 56-episode run as Carmen Morales, but she also appeared in the movie version of Miami Vice.
Laverne Cox as Sophia Burset
If you happened to catch a little VH1 show called TRANSform Me during its run in 2010, you already met Cox. She was one of three trans women who gave makeovers to some fashion-challenged women. She's also been in an indie film called Grandma, and Fox's The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Diane Guerrero as Maritza Ramos
Diane Guerrero on Jane the Virgin
Guerrero plays Jane's best friend on The CW rom-com.
Selenis Leyva as Gloria Mendoza
Selenis Leyva on Dietland
Leyva makes an appearance on the first (and only) season of this AMC dark comedy.
Michael Harney as Sam Healy
Another OINTB star who appeared on Weeds! He doesn't look all that different, but it is weird to see him out of prison as Det. Mitch Ouellette.
Beth Dover as Linda Ferguson
Before landing her role on Orange Is the New Black, Dover appeared on comedies like Another Period and Children's Hospital.
Uzo Aduba as Suzanne Warren
Uzo Aduba on Beats
Aduba popped up in this Netflix film alongside Anthony Anderson.
