But if you’re curious how the show might’ve panned out had Aduba been cast as, say, Piper Chapman, Funny or Die has you covered. In this hilarious skit, Aduba takes a stab at auditioning for the aforementioned lead role, as well as everyone from Red (wig included) to Poussey. Unsurprisingly, she nails them all.
