‘Orange is the New Black’ Promotes Taryn Manning

at 5:30 pm | By

Before the show even aired, Netflix renewed Orange is the New Black for a second season. Now we’ve learned that Taryn Manning — who plays the Jesus-loving meth addict, Tiffany “Pennsatucky” Doggett — has been promoted to series regular. You’ll recognize Manning from films like Hustle & Flow and 8 Mile. You’ll recognize Pennsatucky as, well, a Jesus-loving meth addict who’s incarcerated in FCI Litchfield.

I have not yet finished the first season, and Pennsatucky only shows up sporadically during the beginning of the show. However, I’ve heard that she comes to play a much more important role towards the end of the season and friends who’ve already finished the season are telling me this is exciting news.

If you aren’t watching Orange is the New Black yet, seriously, what’s wrong with you? It’s, like 130 degrees in New York today, it’s not like you have anything better to be doing.
