We’re going to continue to see a lot of Big Boo. Recurring since Season 1 as prison inmate Carrie ‘Big Boo’ Black, Lea DeLaria has been promoted to series regular for the fourth season of the Netflix/Lionsgate TV prison drama. The news comes ahead of Orange Is The New Black’s Season 3 premiere on June 12 and on the heels of an early fourth season renewal. She joins another longtime recurring, Jackie Cruz, who was recently upped to regular for Season 4. DeLaria, also an accomplished jazz musician, is set to release her sixth record, jazz covers of David Bowie hits, “House of David: DeLaria + Bowie= Jazz”, in mid-summer. DeLaria is repped by Jeremy Katz at The Katz Company.
