I don’t have Netflix, so I have yet to watch their original series, “Orange Is the New Black,” but have heard good things about the prison drama.
Well, one of the main characters on the show, Maria Ruiz, is played by the comely Jessica Pimentel, who fronts New York-area band Alekhine’s Gun and plays bass in Desolate.
I’m friends with Jessica on Facebook, and saw her talking about the show on there all the time. It just never occurred to me she was on the show.
I have to get Netflix again now.
Apparently, she’s nothing like the incarcerated chick she plays. I guess that’s why they call it “acting.”
If you have Netflix and have yet to watch the series, now you have a very good reason to.
For Jess’ sake, we hope that there’s a second season for the show as well as more acting roles she can throw herself into.
