Jason Biggs on How Orange Is the New Black Changed His Reputation (VIDEO)
Before Orange Is the New Black, Jason Biggs (Larry Bloom) was most known for his role in the American Pie movies. That's not exactly the worst thing to be known for — American Pie is an undeniable teen cult classic comedy — but it's a far cry from the more serious and respected Orange Is the New Black. So, has being part of this new phenomenon changed the way people perceive Jason?
"There has been a bit of a perception change, I think," Jason says in the video above. "This role and this show is certainly different than what I think people are used to seeing me do."
He goes on to add that he loves having the work, and the bonus with Orange Is the New Black is that it has taken off, "the writing is incredible," and he gets to do something different as an actor. If that creates a turn in his career, that's just another bonus.
For all that and much more about how it felt to film Season 2, check out the video above!
