Which Dawson’s Creek Star Could Have Been the Star of Orange Is the New Black?
It's hard to imagine anybody but Taylor Schilling playing Orange Is the New Black's anti-hero star, Piper Chapman, but it turns out showrunner Jenji Kohan actually originally had a different actress in mind — and it's someone we all know and love from Dawson's Creek!
It turns out Jenji even had talks with the star about taking the role, but in the end the actress "had other things to do." Plus, Jenji noted, "in the beginning, no one knew what [Orange Is the New Black] was."
While the cast of Orange Is the New Black is now super well-known, this Dawson's Creek alum would have definitely been the most famous face on the show when it first premiered.
