See What Daya Does In The Seconds After That 'Orange Is The New Black' Cliffhanger
Huffington Post - 11 months
On Tuesday, Netflix revealed the tantalizingly short minute of action directly after last season’s “Orange Is the New Black” wrap. The upcoming Season 5, which debuts in June, also comes with a format change: The action will happen in real time over the course of three days. The riot and its aftermath will “[leave] the inmates’ lives forever changed as they are emboldened to fight for redemption, resolution and the respect they deserve,” per Netflix. Last season, after an inexperienced young corrections officer kills eternal ray of sunshine Poussey (Samira Wiley), relations between Litchfield Penitentiary inmates and authority figures are more tense than ever. A prison riot boils to the surface in the Season 4 finale as Daya (Dascha Polanco) finds herself holding the gun of CO Humphrey (Michael Torpey), circled by inmates egging her on. The finale cuts away ― to a lovely flashback eulogy for IRL newlywed Poussey ― before we find out whether Daya shoots.  ...

Ashton Kutcher Freaks Out On Laura Prepon After She Forgets To Tell Him She's Engaged
Huffington Post - over 1 year
It appears Ashton Kutcher just got a taste of his own medicine. When Kutcher joined Kelly Ripa as co-host on “Live with Kelly” Friday morning, he was looking forward to interviewing his friend and former “That ‘70s Show” co-star Laura Prepon. But not for reasons you’d assume. The actor was actually eager to yell at Prepon for not telling him about her recent engagement to their mutual friend, Ben Foster. “She just announced this engagement. I had to find out in the news! And she’s my friend, and it’s weird like that!” Kutcher told Ripa.  He went on to explain that when he and Mila Kunis got engaged, Prepon thought it was “crazy”; the trio had been friends for 20 years yet she didn’t know they were an item. But, as Kutcher explained, Prepon and Foster have been friends for two decades too, so their engagement is equally as shocking.  When Prepon came out for her interview, she hugged Kutcher, who mumbled, “I am so pissed off at you.”  “Pre, this is una...

Huffington Post - over 2 years
Ok, the holidays are approaching. So we've got repackaged holiday TV classics slapped together so they can be restocked in the big box stores. We've got complete sets of "classic" (or just popular or just cult-y enough) TV shows in cheaper than ever sets. We've got some hit films. We'e got pirates fighting over treasure in "Black Sails" and thank God we have Criterion and their Eclipse label to uncover some treasures from the cinematic past. Arghhhh! THE GREAT AMERICAN DREAM MACHINE ($39.98 DVD; Entertainment One) BEST OF ENEMIES ($29.98 BluRay; Magnolia) BLACK SAILS SEASON TWO ($59.99 BluRay; Anchor Bay) BETTER CALL SAUL SEASON ONE ($65.99 BluRay; Sony) Great television has been produced since they started broadcasting in the 1940s.

Huffington Post - over 2 years
Topher Grace is still great pals with all of his "That '70s Show" cast mates, but based on what he told HuffPost Live on Wednesday, it sounds like they're all too successful to find time for an official reunion. "The great thing about the show to me, personally, is that everyone ... is doing great, both personally and professionally," Grace said. "It's rare, I think, that everyone that came off a sitcom is [so successful]."  A quick reminder of what the "'70s Show" cast is up to these days: Laura Prepon stars in "Orange Is the New Black," Ashton Kutcher and Danny Masterson are currently prepping a new show for Netflix, Mila Kunis has a busy film career and a regular gig on "Family Guy," Wilmer Valderrama stars in Fox's "Minority Report," and Grace has a role in the critically-acclaimed new film "Truth," which chronicles the fallout from a controversial 2004 CBS report about George W. Bush's military service. So when HuffPost Live asked Grace about whether we might ...

Cleary Wolters, The Real Alex Vause, Shares Her Story For The First Time
Huffington Post - almost 3 years
As fans of "Orange Is the New Black" prepare to spend upwards of 13 hours watching the third season of the Netflix series this June, they may easily forget the reality the show is based on. Many of us already know Piper Kerman -- the real Piper Chapman, played by Taylor Schilling -- from her 2010 memoir, but what about the real woman behind the black-rimmed glasses? In Kerman's book she's Nora Jansen and on screen she's Alex Vause, portrayed by Laura Prepon. But in real life she's Cleary Wolters, a woman who had no idea her story and likeness would be depicted in a hit Netflix series. She first broke her silence with the media in a Vanity Fair interview las year, which revealed Kerman and Wolters never had sex in prison. Now Wolters is ready to tell the full story for the first time with a memoir of her own, Out of Orange. "The story I have is that I’m not a bad person," Wolters told The Huffington Post. "I’m not an evil drug lord or kingpin. I’m like so many other people." Wolte...

See ya later, Larry. Jason Biggs confirmed in an interview with the New York Daily News that he won't appear in the next season of "Orange Is The New Black."

Huffington Post - about 4 years
"Orange Is The New Black" Season 2 will premiere June 6 on Netflix! Netflix announced the premiere date as the credits rolled during the last episode of "House Of Cards" Season 2. Little is known about "Orange Is The New Black" Season 2, but the first season -- based on the book of the same name -- followed Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling) through her prison stay for smuggling drug money across international lines for her lover Alex (Laura Prepon). Ten years after her relationship with Alex ended, Piper is now engaged to Larry (Jason Biggs). When she goes to serve her time, she finds herself in prison with Alex and a whole slew of amazing, hilarious and possibly deranged characters. We know that Laura Prepon will be back as Alex for at least four episodes and that Lori Petty will join the cast. But until June 6, we'll just have to speculate about what happens in Litchfield Penitentiary.

'Orange Is The New Black' And Jodie Foster Have Teamed Up Again
Huffington Post - about 4 years
From Lori Petty's casting to word that Laura Prepon will be returning for most of the second season to that awesome wrap party, the recent "Orange Is the New Black" news has only gotten more exciting. And now, it's even better. Remember how Jodi Foster directed the third episode, "Lesbian Request Denied," of "Orange" last season? Well now she's back behind the camera for a scene from an episode in the upcoming season. The cast and crew of "Orange" were spotted on location in Riverhead, New York last week filming a period piece scene with Foster at the helm. The scene, reportedly set in 1992, takes place in front of the Suffolk Theater and seems to be a flashback for one of the characters. Now we're just anxiously left waiting for what will be the most exciting "Orange" news yet -- the official date of the second season will hit Netflix sometime this spring. Till then, just keep rewatching the first season over and over. [h/t Go Mag, Riverhead Patch]

Why 'Orange Is The New Black' Star Kate Mulgrew Adores Her Prison Uniform
Huffington Post - about 4 years
When HuffPost Entertainment caught up with Kate Mulgrew on the red carpet at the Writers Guild Awards' East Coast ceremony on Saturday (Feb. 1), she wouldn't spill many details about the second season of "Orange is the New Black." (Fortunately, creator Jenji Kohan filled in the gaps when Us Weekly asked about Laura Prepon's much-questioned involvement.) But even if Mulgrew wouldn't budge on the juiciest scoops, she did provide insight about the loving dynamic among the "OITNB" cast, the joys of wearing the same outfit in every episode and her favorite redhead of all time. What are the best and worst parts of wearing the same outfit in every episode? There’s nothing worst about that, let me tell you. The pressure’s off, right? Every role that I’ve ever loved and played well has been in a uniform. From doctors to starship captains to journalists -- well, that’s a very different kind of thing -- to a prisoner. And even then, I get to wear a sort of unique costume because I’m in the k...
