New theme songs, a new hairstyle for Conan, and interviews galore on the special episode of “Conan”
Just about the entire cast of “Orange Is the New Black” appeared on Conan O’Brien‘s late night show on Monday, offering Coco a buzzy boost and the Netflix series a huge platform in the midst of the Emmys campaign.
Taylor Schilling, Uzo Aduba, Natasha Lyonne, Laverne Cox, Kate Mulgrew, Jason Biggs and Lea DeLaria all visited the TBS show, dispensing anecdotes about their time on set and participating in a bunch of gags that, as usual, came at Conan’s expense.
Cox showed up first, in a cold opening that saw her offering hair advice to the host, whose tidal-wave coif has been a trademark for the last 20-plus years. Aduba taught Conan how to give her trademark Crazy Eyes, and then she and Schilling spoke for a whole two minutes about their fight scene. Uzo was afraid to fight on camera!
Other topics of conversation included lesbian sex and Biggs’ prison envy.
