Jason Biggs On Why Larry Won’t Be In ‘Orange Is The New Black’

One of the first pieces of news we got on Orange Is The New Black‘s third season is that Jason Biggs will not be on the upcoming season. Some fans rejoiced that Piper’s estranged husband Larry wouldn’t cause a rift in the Litchfield girls screen time, and others just wanted to know why Biggs isn’t on the upcoming season.

Seeing as the real Piper and Larry are still together, fans wanted to know if the Netflix show was veering from the truth. Well, we can’t exactly answer that, but it sounds like Biggs will have the freedom to return on later seasons.

The American Pie actor sat down with Huffington Post, and from what Biggs said, it sounds like Larry’s absence from the third season wasn’t something that was a creative decision, but more or less was made because of Jason’s hectic schedule.

“For starters so I can do the Heidi Chronicles on Broadway.”

He continued, “It’s not a Larry season. They have a lot of characters to service on that show and, at the end of the day, it’s a women’s prison show. Larry is not a woman or in prison. But the good news is with a show like that, there’s always the possibility that he could come back. And I would go back in a heartbeat.”

Despite Biggs not being in the third season, the actor said that he’s waiting to see what’s in store for the third season of Orange Is The New Black.

“I’m actually really excited to see Season 3, and talking to a bunch of people over there, I think it’s going to be pretty awesome.”

When the news first hit, Biggs told the New York Daily News, “They’re not focusing on Larry at the moment. Larry will not be in season 3. But there’s always a possibility he can come back.”

As for when Orange Is The New Black will be available for streaming, Netflix said season 3 will be available on June 12 for fans to binge watch.

Would you like to see Larry on the fourth season of Orange Is The New Black or should the show focus more on the inmates?
