Alright, we’re officially obsessed with the Orange Is the New Black cast.
Lea DeLaria, who plays Big Boo on the show, just dropped the coolest news about her upcoming wedding to fashion editor Chelsea Fairless: One of her OITNB cast-mates will sing at the nuptials! So exciting!
And who is the lucky Litchfield inmate? None other than reigning Emmy goddess Uzo Aduba! (She just took home her second nod for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series at last night’s Emmy Awards.) That’s right: Crazy Eyes will sing at Big Boo’s wedding. So many GD feels.
“Uzo and I have known each other for years,” Lea told E! exclusively at the Emmy Awards. “We’ve done a couple of musicals together…We love each other. Chelsea and I had a conversation about who we really want to sing at our wedding and we both went, ’Uzo.’ I asked and she said of course, she’d be honored.”
The gig makes perfect sense, too. Uzo is a fabulous singer; she’s even set to play Glinda the Good Witch in NBC’s The Wiz, which will air live on Dec. 3. Unfortunately, though, Uzo won’t sing “Over the Rainbow” at Lea’s wedding. The gang has something different in mind: “I’m Calling You” from the movie Baghdad Café (1987). How cute is that?
And get a load of this: E! reports Sandra Bernhardt will officiate the ceremony and Modern Family god Jesse Tyler Ferguson will serve as Lea’s best man. Alright, where are our invitations, Lea? We need to be at this wedding.
Come through with the vocal slay, Uzo! Take us to church.
