'Orange Is The New Black': Katie Holmes came close to playing PiperAdd to Favorites | Orange Is the New Black
"Orange" creator Jenji Kohan revealed to E! reporter Marc Malkin at a pre-Emmy event (Aug. 4) ,Tom Cruise's ex could have played Piper in the hit series. When asked about it Kohan says, "I'm a big fan of her's. I met with her originally for Piper, I believe."
Kohan says talks with Holmes didn't continue because "she had other things going on" and "no one knew (at that time) the show would be what it was."
Taylor Schilling, our reigning Piper, has a few ideas if Holmes would like to do a guest appearance in Season 3. "She could be friends with Lorna or like Lorna's Boston sister," she offers.
What do you think about Holmes' possible presence in Litchfield?
