33 actors went from 'Law & Order' to prison in 'Orange is the New Black'

New, 23 comments

Where the first season of Netflix original Orange is the New Black focused on Piper Chapman's experiences in a New York prison, the recently released second season widens its net, telling stories of the facility's other inmates. They're a varied group, but as Autostraddle shows, many of them have one thing in common — this isn't their first run in with the televised law. More than 30 of Orange is the New Black's actors have appearances in the long-running Law & Order on their resume, performing as cops, criminals, and bystanders caught in the show's police procedural crossfire. Autostraddle catalogs their appearances in impressive detail.
