Why One Character on ‘Orange Is the New Black’ Resembles a Popular Radio Figure

Aug 14, 2013  •  Post A Comment

If actor Robert Stanton resembles a popular real-life radio figure on Netflix’s "Orange Is the New Black," there’s a reason for that, according to creator Jenji Kohan, who spoke about it on NPR’s "Fresh Air" with Terry Gross.

Kohan said she’s a big fan of "This American Life" host Ira Glass, and even offered Glass a role in the prison drama, TheWrap notes, citing the "Fresh Air" interview. She said he "politely declined."

"I’m a huge Ira Glass fan; I’m a huge fan of radio in general. I don’t have a whole lot of time to watch TV, but I’m a big podcast listener, a big radio listener and a fangirl to a certain extent," Kohan said.

Kohan added that Stanton’s glasses aren’t identical to those worn by Glass, but that there is "a flavor."

  1. Hey there! I understand this is somewhat off-topic but I had to ask. Does managing a well-established website like yours require a massive amount work? I am brand new to operating a blog but I do write in my journal daily. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my own experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!|
