Mike Birbiglia Joins Orange Is the New Black Cast

Mike Birbiglia performs during the 6th Annual Stand Up For Heroes at the Beacon Theatre on November 8, 2012 in New York City.

Comedian Mike Birbiglia has joined the cast of Orange is the New Black's third season. There's no word on what role Birbiglia will play — guard? relative in a flashback? — but he was most recently seen leading a cancer support group in the "literal heart of Jesus" in The Fault in Our Stars, so maybe he can help Mr. Healy finally get "Safe Place" off the ground?
