What do "Scandal" and "Orange is the New Black" have in common, besides being two of the most talked-about series on the air/on Netflix? Well, both have major, complex, fully formed characters of color, though in "OITNB" we get them via the "Trojan horse" of boho WASP Piper Chapman and her fish-out-of-water tale of imprisonment, while in "Scandal" Kerry Washington's Olivia Pope often stands alone in her excursions to a very white White House. Courtesy of "OITNB" cast member Danielle Brooks' Instagram feed, here's Uzo Aduba (Crazy Eyes) and Brooks (Taystee) goofing around on set, bringing the two show universes together by reenacting one of the juicier scenes from last week's "Scandal" season premiere, which involved a rare mention of Olivia's race. It's a lot funnier when these two are running the lines.
