16 Times Orange Is the New Black Cast Members Sang Out of Costume

Not to spoil too much for the slow watchers, but a certain second season episode of Orange Is the New Black involves a whole lot of singing. So did the first season of the show, which makes sense: when you shoot a show in New York, you're going to find yourself with a lot of musical theater or musical-theater-trained actors. They tend to sing everywhere. So here are 16 videos of 16 different OITNB cast members — everyone from Pennsatucky to Taystee to Flaca to Soso to, of course, Crazy Eyes — singing in real life. Guess which cast member is the lead singer of a metal band.
