One of Netflix’s small pack of forthcoming original series, Weeds creator Jenji Kohan’s Orange Is the New Black, has found its leads. Though the pedigree isn’t quite at Arrested Development heights or boasting the Kevin Spacey/David Fincher cred of House of Cards, these are actresses you’ve probably seen! The Lucky One’s Taylor Schilling (pictured) will play a Brooklyn woman whose old relationship with a drug runner — played by That ‘70s Show’s Laura Prepon  — lands her in prison.
