Practically Everyone in "OITNB" Was on "Law & Order"Crime and Punishment
Pretty much the entire cast of "Orange Is the New Black" was featured in "Law & Order." Check out who played who.
Before heading to Litchfield Penitentiary, the vast majority of the cast of "Orange Is the New Black" made cameos on the long-running crime drama "Law & Order."
Thanks to AutoStraddle, we now know just how many in the cast built up their resume with a part or two on "Law & Order" and its myriad of spinoffs.
The actors play a full gambit of characters—for instance Sophia (Laverne Cox) played a truck stop prostitute named Minnie, Nichols (Natasha Lyonne) a patient at a psychiatric facility, and Pornstache (Pablo Schreiber), unsurprisingly, a sadistic criminal mastermind.
I guess they just can't get away from the life of crime.
