Seth Meyers continued his breakout year Monday night as the host of television's biggest night, the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards.
Hosting a major awards show is ostensibly an honor, but increasingly, in the world of live-tweeting, a thankless assignment — and one that was made even more tedious by the fact that this year's Emmy telecast occurred on a Monday. Did Meyers rise to the occasion?
Jason Biggs and Taylor Schilling
As most people know, Netflix's successful series Orange Is the New Blackis based on the memoir of Piper Kerman's time spent in prison. But while Kerman has spoken about what's true and what the show has taken liberties with — and the "real" Alex has also spoken out in a detailed Vanity Fair piece — for the first time, the man in Kerman's life, Larry, is opening up.
In an article in the online magazine Matter titled "My Life with Piper: From Big House to Small Screen," Smith talks about the other side of the true story. From his near-perfect life essentially crashing at 29 to Kerman's incarceration, her book, the TV series and everything in between, Smith shines a light on what it's like to be that guy -- played by Jason Biggs -- who inspired a big part of Orange. Here are 10 things we learned from his story.
Lori Petty will return to Orange Is the New Black as a guest star in Season 3, Entertainment Weekly reports.
Although the 66th Annual Primetime Emmys are still a week away, the Creative Arts Emmys were handed out Saturday night in Los Angeles.
The awards show, which will be broadcast on FXM on Sunday, Aug. 24 at 8/7c, included big wins for newcomers and industry veterans alike.
Mike Birbiglia has landed a recurring role on Orange Is the New Black, according to the The Hollywood Reporter.
The Cast of Orange is the New Black on Conan
This week, members of the Orange Is the New Black cast took over Conan for an episode, and it was glorious. Also, a farmer serenaded a team of cows with a trombone rendition of Lorde's "Royals," and the Internet found a new celebrity in "Apparently Boy." Taylor Swift made us sniffle when she visited a 7-year-old cancer patient, and Nina Dobrev and Jimmy Fallon entertained us with a game of Giant Beer Pong. Check out those clips and more in our weekly roundup of the best online videos:
There's a lot going on in Season 2 of Netflix's Orange Is the New Black, and very little of it has to do with Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling), who is ostensibly the show's protagonist. Creator Jenji Kohan made no secret of the fact that plot lines were going to be more equally distributed in the sophomore season, pulling the focus away from Piper and allowing other characters like Taystee (Danielle Brooks), Miss Rosa (Barbara Rosenblat) and newcomer Vee (Lorraine Toussaint) to move into the spotlight. But Schilling says she frankly didn't even notice the difference.
"I felt like it was hard to even know that there was less of it, because what was happening felt so dynamic, and it felt like the character of Piper was moving in such an interesting way," the Emmy-nominated Schilling tells TVGuide.com. "That's what I was focused on."

Do Anna and Elsa have a connection to any of our favorite Once Upon a Time characters? — Nathan
You mean other than Elsa having been locked up in Rumple's vault all those years? It sure sounds like it! "Maybe there is an unlikely friendship that Charming had in his past that maybe literally changed the entire path of his life," Josh Dallas told me at Comic-Con when I asked the exact same question. Safe money is on him being friends with Anna over Elsa, though.
I can't wait for the final season of Sons of Anarchy. Give me scoop! — Mel
