And do you think the fantastic performances by Aduba and Wiley this season could potentially help them as they try to get nominated for their work on the first season? — Kevin

Aduba spoke to TVGuide.com about Suzanne's troubled past, her relationship with Vee and what's next for our favorite garden rose.
Can you imagine anyone other than Uzo Aduba playing Crazy Eyes on Orange Is the New Black? Or better yet, what if Aduba had played Piper, Poussey or even Alex?
