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:

Former That 70s Show star Laura Prepon has traded in her Topher Grace-loving counterpart to play a lesbian in Jenji Kohan’s new show Orange Is The New Black.
And while the tall actress has completely inhabited her new character, fans and the LGBT community have completely embraced her:

We doubt anyone really thought otherwise, but it's still a bummer to know for certain!

We think this is probably for the best! It's had a good run!
The sixth season of Weeds concluded last night with a pretty shocking twist, which has left many wondering how on Earth the seventh season is going to unfold.
Creator Jenji Kohan is remaining pretty tight-lipped on the details, but instead revealed that after next year, the Showtime series will most likely be coming to an end!
"Everyone's contract is up next year, [including] the actors and mine. Seven years is a good run, and I'd rather leave while on top. I'd never say never, but I have a feeling this might be it. It's very strange and exciting and scary and sad in a lot of ways. We have such an extraordinary team. I would hope to take everyone over to [my] next project, including some of the actors, if possible. I think it's such a strong group of people across the board. That will be very hard to let go of. However, I think growth is an obligation of a writer and it's time to stretch my wings."
She makes a good point! And let's face it - she's taken the show in a lot more directions than we ever could have anticipated!
It will be sad to say good-bye to Botwin family, though!
Let's keep our fingers crossed that the (potentially) final season won't disappoint!
