Mary Steenburgen OITNB

192183It’s Pornstache!

Yes, Steenburgen has been given the unfortunate task of loving one of the Netflix comedy’s least lovable characters, TVLine has learned exclusively. But hey, isn’t that what moms are for?

(Besides, after putting up with Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly’s shenanigans in Step Brothers, we’re thinking she can handle anything.)

For her part, Steenburgen is stoked to join the OITNB family, tweeting this on June 12:

“Very excited to go to my first wardrobe fitting of OITNB! Will I be in orange or black?:)”

Guess she can rule out orange now!

    I feel like I read that Pablo Schreiber was not going to make an appearance in the third season… Is that correct? Seems unfortunate we wouldn’t have the opportunity to see his and Mary Steenburgen’s characters interact.

  2. Steven says:

    Wouldn’t it be fun if Pornstache’s mom got arrested and became an inmate?

  3. C says:

    Ooooooh…Pornstache’s mom must try and lay some kind of claim on Daya’s baby! That’ll cause some problems!

  4. Twilight123 says:

    She’s going to fight for custody of Daya’s baby! Calling it now!

  5. Evan says:

    I nearly howled with laughter over this one. Man, I am excited to see Steenburgen!

  6. Aimee says:

    This has me weirdly excited.

  7. God says:

    Remember Pornstache was dealing drugs? Maybe she deals as well as and ends up in Litchfield.

  8. Kip Ladd says:

    I was almost positive that she was going to play Alex’s mom:/

    • Yolanda says:

      Alex’s mom died, that’s why Alex was so hurt when Piper left her, she had just found out her mom died and she told Piper she needed her support and she still broke up and left her :\

  9. J says:

    Least lovable characters?..speak for yourself..lol. Pornstache is hilarious but I thought Pablo said he wouldn’t be back at all for season 3.

  10. cjeffery7 says:

    im guessing she’s kind of a psycho hence his apparent psycho behavior toward the inmates, and women in general.

    Pornstache hinted today on # Ask Orange (A twitter Q & A sponsored by Netflix) that he would not be on Season 3. So what’s the truth? Would love to see more of him if it’s really true!
