Lori Petty returning to 'Orange Is the New Black'
Lori Petty is going back to prison: The Tank Girl and League of Their Own star will reprise her brief, but memorable role during the third season of Orange Is the New Black, EW has learned exclusively.
Petty first appeared on the Emmy-nominated series in the season-two premiere, portraying Lolly, a fellow inmate that Piper meets on a transport plane. Netflix declined to comment on Petty’s return, and details on what brings Lolly back into the fold are being kept under wraps.
The actress joins previously announced season-three guest stars Mary Steenburgen, Blair Brown, and Mike Birbiglia.
Orange Is the New Black is expected to return next year.
Jenji Kohan’s absorbing ensemble dramedy, based on Piper Kerman’s memoir of the same name, takes viewers inside the walls of Litchfield, a minimum security women’s prison where nothing’s as simple as it seems—especially the inmates.
