Jason Biggs has confessed he didn't feel the need to find out too much about the man he plays in Orange Is The New Black, because it was all in the script.
The American Pie actor stars with Taylor Schilling in the Netflix comedy drama from acclaimed Weeds writer Jenji Kohan. The story of life in a women's prison is based on the memoir by Piper Kerman, and she and her husband Larry Smith, who Jason plays in the show, were on set during filming.
Jason revealed: "I did meet him a couple of episodes in. But I didn't seek information form him. Not because he couldn't help, because obviously he's got a great story to tell, he's got his own version.
"But because Jenji was intent on creating her own world, and further more for my character everything was there on the page. These writers are so incredible, Jenji's so incredible."
He quipped: "Maybe I'm just not that professional! It really was just all there, there wasn't much that I need to dig to get."
Orange Is The New Black is currently airing on Netflix in the US, Canada, UK, Ireland and Latin America and has already been commissioned for another series.
