Some new casting news has come in for the hit Netflix series Orange Is the New Black, which recently launched its second season and garnered quite a few Emmy nominations.

According to The Wrap, Pablo Schreiber, who plays George Mendez, a.k.a. “Pornstache,” won’t be back for season three, due to his new role in the HBO comedy series The Brink, which stars Jack Black and Tim Robbins.

In addition to Schreiber’s exit, we also have word that Fringe alum Blair Brown has joined the show, in an unspecified role. Her role as Nina Sharp on Fringe‘s five seasons makes me think she’d be able to give Orange Is the New Black‘s Red (Kate Mulgrew) a run for her money, but I guess we’ll just have to sit back and wait for official confirmation before knowing for sure.
