Orange Is the New Black Promotes Taystee to Series Regular

Deadline reports that Law & Order's Lorraine Toussaint (she played Shambala Green!) will be joining Orange Is The New Black in a heavily recurring role. She'll play Vee, a drug dealer who recruited children to serve as runners. In other exciting OITNB news, just like Taryn Manning last week, Danielle Brooks, the actress who plays the loveable Taystee, has been promoted from recurring role to series regular for Orange’s second season. This is wonderful news, as it means we’re one step closer to having Taystee and Poussey sing duets every episode like a fantastic imprisoned Greek chorus.
