There are any number of roles that might be synonymous with Lori Petty in your head, but for my money, they are Kit Keller from A League of Their Own and Livewire, one of the few characters invented for the DC Animated Universe who were brought to comics canon.
TVLine reports that the veteran character actress will be joining the cast of Orange is the New Black in its second season. It’s impossible to say at this point whether Petty’s character will be in or out of a prison uniform, as there are no details available about who she’s playing. It’s also possible that she’ll only be appearing for an episode or two. TVLine refers to her role as a “guest star.”
So. Does this article rest primarily on a presumed affection for Lori Petty’s work, in Free Willy, Star Trek: Voyager, or Point Break? And a corressponding interest in Orange is the New Black?
