Grimm Enlists Orange Is the New Black Actress for Slithery Season 5 Stint

Watch out, Grimm gang: Portland’s newest Wesen has done time at the big house.

Orange Is the New Black‘s Madeline Brewer has been cast in the upcoming fifth season as a lizard-like Wesen known as a Skalengeck, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Brewer’s character, Billie Trump, is described as “a fierce lieutenant in an up-and-coming Wesen street gang who is raising hell in Portland.” But just when you think that you understand Billie’s gang, you learn that the group of monsters is indicative of really terrible things to come.

The actress played the drug-addicted Tricia (blonde cornrows, neck tattoos) in OITNB‘s first season, and she’s the second Litchfield inmate to show up on Nick Burkhardt’s turf: Elizabeth Rodriguez debuted last season as an FBI agent, and TVLine has learned she’ll be back in Season 5.

Brewer’s other credits include Hemlock Grove and Stalker. She’ll appear in Episodes 6 and 7 of the new season.

Grimm returns to NBC on Friday, Oct. 30, at 9/8c.
