    10 Actors Who Need To Be On "Orange Is The New Black"

    We threw our pie for you, Alex. Who can we swirl with now?

    Orange Is The New Black will have several new cast members for the second season, which should probably move along and get here already.

    Lorraine Toussaint has reportedly signed on to play a new character named Vee.

    Described as “a longtime street tough who ran her own drug business, recruiting children to serve as runners.”

    Both Danielle Brooks and Taryn Manning, recurring cast members, have been promoted to regulars.

    In our dreams, these actors would join the already outstanding cast in 2014.

    Her character could work with the dog rehabilitation program at the prison and get friendly with Big Boo.

    Her attitude, thrown in with Poussay and Taystee, would end in comedic gold.

    Bonus for her edgy haircut.

    You probably remember her best from her role in The United States Of Tara, where she brought sarcasm to a whole new level.

    She could play a newbie, fresh from the "scared straight" program. She talks big game, but somebody is going to have to show her the ropes.

    Bitches gots to learn, right?

    4. Viola Davis

    Because she is Viola Davis, that's why. Do you really need a reason?

    5. Naya Rivera

    Impressed with the singing from the Christmas pageant episode? Imagine lf Naya started up the prison's first glee club.

    What about the mysterious Warden character, who we have yet to actually see on screen?

    Enter the one and only, Jennifer Beals.

    She is no stranger to portraying badass women in positions of power.

    6. And who wouldn't want to see her go off on Healy?

    Gina Torres would also get our vote for the role of the Warden.

    Let's not forget that Laura Prepon did not sign on as a regular next season.

    Who will Chapman swirl with now!?

    Sandra Oh has announced her departure from Grey's Anatomy...

    ... maybe she can trade in her scrubs for an orange jumpsuit and become Chapman's new person.
