Could Britney Spears Join The Cast Of Orange Is The New Black?September 21, 2015
If it’s up to Taryn Manning the answer is YES.
Britney’s ‘Crossroads’ co-star Taryn Manning says Britney is “such a good actor.”
Britney’s acting abilities are highly underrated and overwhelmingly untapped, but according to actress Taryn Manning, who landed a recurring role on Netflix’s hit series ‘Orange Is The New Black,’ Britney is not only a solid actress, but welcome to appear on the show any time.
“Of course, I want Britney Spears everywhere you can see her,” Manning told ET at The Emmys Sunday night when asked if she’d like to see the “Toxic” singer on the show. “She’s the best.”
Britney recently filmed a spot for Jane The Virgin, but if she *did* appear on OITNB, what would she play? “Um, I mean, I don’t have to make up a character — she’s such a good actor that I feel like they could do anything with her,” Manning said. “I was so impressed working with her I was like — she’s just very sincere in her acting, you know? It’s like everyone wanted to maybe hope that she’s not gonna be good but she was great.”
Manning also recalled a time when she pushed Britney to sing a little something while the ‘Crossroads’ cameras weren’t rolling.
“There’s a very specific day [that stands out to me when I look back on the movie] — I was like ‘Sing, sing for me,’ right? ‘Cause everyone is like she can’t sing. So I was like ‘Sing for me,’ I knew she could — she sang the National Anthem for me in the car — for us — and it was the most perfect thing I’ve ever heard and for anybody who thinks she can’t sing — she can sing like an angel.”
