'Orange Is the New Black' Taps Lori Petty to Guest Star in Season 2


'Orange Is the New Black' Taps Lori Petty to Guest Star in Season 2


It looks like Lori Petty may be trading her Rockford Peaches uniform in for an orange prison jumpsuit. TVLine has exclusively learned that the former 'League of Their Own' star (Kit!) will be guest starring in the second season of 'Orange Is the New Black.'

There's no word yet on what exactly Petty's role in the popular Netflix drama will be, however, we can't help but hope that she'll be introduced as a new inmate. Someting tells us she could definitely hold her own in this crowd of tough ladies and it would be interesting to see which group she'd end up befriending.

Of course, she could wind up being a correctional officer at Litchfield or a mutal friend of Piper and Larry's, but where's the fun in that? For a show so enriched with diverse female characters, it would be great to see Petty stretch her acting chops in a more complex way.

Aside from her role as Kit Keller in the 1992 film 'A League of Their Own,' the actress is also greatly known for her roles in 'Tank Girl' and 'Point Break.' Her TV credits include stints on 'House,' 'Prison Break,' and 'The Cleaner.'

'Orange Is the New Black' will kick off its second season later this year.
