REALLY?!

We have no idea how little Joey Potter from Dawson's Creek could play bisexual drug smuggler Piper Chapman on Netflix's Orange Is The New Black

But the show's creator Jenji Kohan revealed that Katie Holmes was actually a front-runner for the gritty role!

At last night's OITNB event in West Hollywood, Jenji spilled deets about Katie's ultimate decision to not appear on the series:

"She had other things to do. And also in the beginning, no one knew what this was."

But funny enough, at The Giver premiere last week, Katie revealed Orange is one of her new favorite shows!!

LOLz!

And although Miz Holmes might've been the creator's first choice, Taylor Schilling (who plays Piper, now) has nothing but love for the actress — and even revealed who she'd play if given the opportunity to guest star:

"I'm a big fan of Katie Holmes. She could be friends with Lorna or like Lorna's Boston sister."

Friends with a convicted stalker AND a chance to display her northeastern dialect skills?! Sounds like a plan!
