Actress Katie Holmes was almost cast in the role of Piper Chapman in ‘Orange Is the New Black’.

The Netflix show’s creator Jenji Kohan revealed that she was a fan of Holmes and considered the former ‘Dawson’s Creek’ actress for the lead, reported E! online.

“You know, I met with her. She had other things to do. And also in the beginning, no-one knew what this was,” Kohan said.

Taylor Schilling, who plays prisoner Piper, added, “I’m a big fan of Katie Holmes. She could be friends with Lorna or like Lorna’s Boston sister.”

Holmes has previously said that the Emmy-nominated show is one of her favourite series.
