Please tell me you are watching this show? Orange is the new Black is slowly becoming one of our new faves around the TV Overmind offices, and one of the characters that makes the show so appealing is Crazy Eyes, played by actress Uzo Aduba. Well, good news for people who like her character and thought she wasn’t featured enough in season one. She has been moved to full time cast member for season two, meaning her character will be on screen much more, with more of her story fleshed out. And for show lead, Piper, this could be a good thing or a bad thing. We are guessing bad.
It would be hard to talk about the amazing first season of Orange is the New Black without mentioning what makes it work so well, and that is the cast. Wonderfully diverse and all enjoyable for different reasons, Uzo’s Crazy Eyes character is not the kind of character you like in the sense that you would want to hang out with her (especially after the peeing incident), but she is one of those characters who you find yourself always wondering what kind of crazy thing she will do next. She is like the Kramer or the Charlie Day of Orange is the New Black. She is crazy, but you can’t help but be entranced by her, affixed by whatever it is she may do next.
And apparently the writers of the show felt the same way about her, so expect to see a great deal more of this character when season two of this critically acclaimed show drops. When that will be, we just don’t know yet, but you will know as soon as we do.
Oh, and one piece of advice for all you in the clink, even if someone offers, NEVER share headphones.
