Standup Mike Birbiglia just got a big TV role. THR reports that Birbiglia has signed on to appear in a recurring role on Orange Is the New Black’s upcoming third season. Details on Birbiglia’s role are being kept under wraps, though series creator Jenji Kohan recently said in an interview that the new season will revolve around “faith, to a certain extent.”
Orange Is the New Black one of many new projects for Birbiglia, including a standup tour as well as film roles in The Fault in Our Stars, Annie, Don’t Mess with Texas, Digging for Fire, and Judd Apatow’s Trainwreck. For more on Birbiglia, check out our interview with him from last month.
