Manning, 35 – who plays bible-thumper Tiffany “Pennsatucky” Doggett – revealed that the comedian is vying for a small role on the breakout Netflix hit.
“Rosie O’Donnell, who loves OITNB, expressed her desire to be an extra for a day,” Manning told Radar.
No official word on if it will actually happen, but Manning is hopeful — naming O’Donnell, 51, as one of her “dream guests.”
Otherwise, Manning is remaining very tight-lipped about the show, which is currently filming its second and highly-anticipated season.
When the Netflix show left off, Manning’s character was getting pummeled by the show’s star Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling).
Playing a self-proclaimed Christian disciple and prison inmate, Manning admits the role has its challenges.
“The most difficult part for me is how radically different we are, morals and all. I have invested a lot of time researching and getting into the mind of this character — sometimes it is hard to separate, leave set and leave the character behind for the day,” she revealed.
Another downside of her role: having to wear rotten teeth and little (if any) makeup, she told Radar.
That’s why she’s soaking up spa and beauty days when she’s off set.
“I wove shades of ‘Cinnamon Toast’ and ‘Bamboo’ throughout her medium brunette base. I wanted to articulate sensuality and sophistication with velvety brunette tones,” Minardi said.
“I then applied a glaze of Beth Minardi Signature Demi Liquid ‘Buttercream’ and ‘Sunflower’ to infuse the hair with a warm, radiant glow. This is a modern way to fashion alluring, bombshell brunettes.”
