Get ready, because Mary Steenburgen — who most recently starred on FX’s Justified — is headed to Litchfield next year for a recurring role! How excited is Mary for her new gig? Luckily you don’t have to keep on guessing, because the 61-year-old actress took to Twitter to share her glee.

“Very excited to go to my first wardrobe fitting of OITNB! Will I be in orange or black?” Mary tweeted yesterday, June 12, stopping short of spilling any details about her character.

Unfortunately we’ll probably have to wait a while to learn exactly who Mary will be playing. She could definitely use her talents to play an inmate, but she could very likely be playing someone from an inmate’s flashback story, or maybe even a new prison employee.

There’s no word yet on when Season 2 of OITNB will make it’s Netflix debut, but you can probably expect it sometime during the summer of 2014.

What do you think about this new cast edition? Who do you think Mary will be playing? Hit the comments and sound off!
