Did Katie Holmes Almost Play Piper In 'Orange Is The New Black'?
Series creator Jenji Kohan has revealed she had Tom Cruise's ex-wife in mind for the role...
Jenji Kohan revealed at an event for the programme at the DGA in West Hollywood this week that she was a fan of the former Dawson's Creek actress and seriously considered her for the role, which eventually went to Taylor Schilling.
Speaking of Katie, E! Online quotes Kohan as saying: "You know, I met with her.
"She had other things to do. And also in the beginning, no-one knew what this was."
Schilling was also asked who she thinks Katie could be friends with if she bagged a part in the hit series, to which she replied: "I'm a big fan of Katie Holmes. She could be friends with Lorna (Yael Stone) or like Lorna's Boston sister."
Kate Mulgrew - who plays Red - added: "She better watch herself. Pretty girls have to watch out in that prison."
Holmes - who is said to be a fan of OITNB - previously joked that if she was ever on the show, she could finally show of her tattoos, before adding: "No, I don't have any tattoos. My child would kill me."
