Uzo Aduba in a Funny or Die skit

We love Uzo Aduba’s portrayal of Suzanne aka “Crazy Eyes” in the Netflix hit Orange is the New Black. But believe it or not, she didn’t think she connected with the character when she first auditioned for the show. (Well, according to thisĀ Funny or Die spoof at least)

In this “leaked” audition tape, we see Aduba try out for the parts of Taystee, Poussey, Piper, Pennsatuckey and even Red. She clearly doesn’t fit the description of any of the characters. But we’ll give her an ‘A’ for effort for trying with wigs.

We’re just glad she eventually got cast for the role of Crazy Eyes. Her portrayal of the character is so hilarious yet touching on the show! We want to see more of her!!
