Jason Biggs on His New Show Orange Is the New Black and Feuding With Amanda Bynes

A year ago, Jason Biggs wrote an essay for Vulture about being known as the Guy Who Fucked a Pie, and how sometimes that makes it harder for him to land parts that aren’t, well, broadly comedic. But he’s recently made some dramatic headway, getting an earful from Alicia Florrick on The Good Wife and landing a part in Jenji Kohan’s new Netflix dramedy premiering tonight, Orange Is the New Black. In the series, which has received raves and an early renewal, Biggs plays the nice guy fiancé of a woman (Taylor Schilling) going to prison for fifteen months. (She confesses to having once transported drug money for an ex-girlfriend.) Vulture got ahold of Biggs, 35, to ask about his new show, but also about fame and being called ugly by Amanda Bynes.
