Lorraine Toussaint 'Vee' Back from the Dead for Season 3 of 'Orange Is the New Black'! Video!
"Sorry, Red ... Vee -- Litchfield Federal Prison`s public enemy #1 -- will be back on the show for season 3 ... despite being left for dead in last season`s finale of "Orange Is the New Black" ... TMZ has learned.
The future of Vee was super murky -- not only was the character hit by a car ... but the actress who plays her, Lorraine Toussaint, is now on the ABC show "Forever.`
Vee, played by Lorraine Toussaint is the scariest female villain in television (streaming?) history. Vee is an agent of chaos in the dangerous milieu of a women`s prison.
Vee exudes a sense of foreboding as she quietly and confidently patrols her turf in the Litchfield Federal Prison, if she focuses her stare on an inmate it`s the equivalent of an Italian mobster planting the kiss of death on his next victim.
Almost without exception actresses who play villains are drop-dead gorgeous and we think to ourselves: Gosh she`s evil, but at least she`s beautiful.
The 54-year-old Vee is no sex symbol; there is no outward physical attractiveness to leaven the blackness of her heart.
Season two of " Orange is the New Black" ended with Vee being deliberately run over by one of the many inmates that she had crossed, truly one of the most satisfying finales in recent history.
But it seems you can`t kill evil so easily, Vee will be back for season three. I guess I`m glad she`s back from the dead; she`s an antagonist that you love to hate.
