Now the talented and terrifying Schreiber is gearing up for the second season of the streaming series.

Pablo Schreiber’s Law & Order: SVU character William Lewis might be dead, but we can still enjoy a little bit of the actor as the drug pushing Pornstache on Netflix’s Orange is the New Black. The hit streaming series returns for its second season this Friday.
Last year Schreiber spoke to Vulture about how he got cast as the unlawful prison guard:
“I did Weeds with Jenji and because the character on Weeds was this very sexualized character--there was a kind of oohing and ahing on the Internet about how sexy the character was and blah blah blah. And so part of doing this role for me was about messing with people’s expectations. Because there was this desire to peg me as the sexy guy, I really wanted to turn that on its head. And so when I saw the script for Orange Is the New Black, I was actually considered for Larry [Jason Biggs], strangely enough. Jenji was like, ‘Oh, I’d love to work with you, we have this character Larry.’ Then she’s like, ‘I don’t really think that’s right.’ And then I read the script and I saw this guy, Pornstache, and thought, This is a way to mess with people’s perceptions. And then I read the book and the guy was this completely sadistic pig, and I knew right away that he was mine.”
Orange is the New Black returns this Friday June 6 on Netflix.
