Whoa! Katie Holmes + Orange Is The New Black?
Katie Holmes’ budding lil’ fashionista Suri Cruise already criticizes her momma enough for her baggy jeans and chunky cable knits—could you imagine if Holmes spent her days in prison scrubs, instead? According to a just-released exclusive from E! Online, the former Mrs. Cruise was initially considered for the starring role of Piper Chapman in Orange Is the New Black.
“I’m a big fan of hers,” said the show’s creator Jenji Kohan at an OITNB event in Los Angeles. “You know, I met with her.”
Obviously, the role went to Taylor Schilling, instead, but wouldn’t it have been something to see Joey Potter getting hot and heavy with Alex Vause (Laura Prepon)? That’s an image that won’t dissolve from my brain space anytime soon.
