Katie Holmes Almost Starred in 'Orange Is the New Black'

Katie Holmes walks the red carpet at the world premiere of the Lexus Short Films’ Life is Amazing on Wednesday (August 6) at the SVA Theater in New York City.

Also in attendance at the event were Matthew Morrison and his fiancee Renee Puente, model Jessica Clark, celeb stylist June Ambrose, and actor Nick Ballard.

Orange Is the New Black creator Jenji Kohan recently revealed that she almost cast Katie in the role of Piper, which went to Taylor Schilling.

“I’m a big fan of hers,” Jenji told E! News. “You know, I met with her. She had other things to do. And also in the beginning, no one knew what this was.”

FYI: Katie is wearing a Michael Kors shirt, pants, and shoes with Tiffany & Co. earrings.

Sure. As if anyone thinks she could have handled that role. Nice try.

# 2

@Lies: lol thank god they casted Taylor. Can’t imagine Katie as an inmate or surviving the least bit in prison for that matter.

# 3

Not bad for her. I see she got the memo to pull her hair up which makes a huge difference when trying to look dressed up.
However the pant length seems too long or too big or idk. She is close this time but never gets it just right.
Not sure I like the top half but for her it’s all an improvement.

# 4

I like her outfit.

This B list mostly movie actress is having her part reduced significantly in her new movie because her acting has been really awful. What was supposed to be a fairly major part for the actress trying to be known for more than just a relationship is turning into a tiny role with just a few lines. I don’t know where that once promising actress went.

I liked the orange dress, and the ponytail, the pics were lovely, she looked so fresh and again very youthful looking.

She’s been looking very nice lately. Pulled together and happy. I wonder if she’s dating and/or in love.

Marrying Cruise seemingly destroyed her as an actress

The 2nd Annual Lexus Short Films ‘Life is Amazing’ New York premiere presented by The Weinstein Company AND Lexus at SVA Theater.

details, details, details, JJ.

Wow. In shock. She looks really good here. Great make up, clothes that fit her body and a pulled together look. As another poster said the pants are a little off, but this shows that with some effort she can look great from head to toe!

@Lol: Dark eyes, twisted smile, manipulative.. She would have nailed it. Still think she should be Jodi in a remake of the Jodi Arius Trial

@Gmitse Ko: Marrying Cruise put her on the map.

@Not So Blind Item: #6 – Did you see Nicole’s “cameo” appearance in Just Go With It? Still say coaching classes etc. …. NEVER too late!

@Details:
LOL but of course.

Her legs are covered so that’s good.

@Roberta:
Anything to divert the attention away from her bad acting and personal failures. lol

Per reviews!!!!; the only noteworthy performance in The Giver was Bridges. They say he does Buddhism and meditated for an hr to 2 hrs a day before going on set. Hmmm,

@DTBH:
I am curious to see how the reviews come out for her playing a mother type. I read a comment on another board that said she looked like someone who would get lost in the mall.

This theatre is in Chelsea and she lives in Chelsea so this was a short ride for Katie. These appearances are a good thing for her because it keeps her in the celebrity blogs. Although this was not a high profile event like the upcoming premiere for The Giver. I hope she looks good because those type of high profile premieres don’t come around every year for her. The last major movie she appeared in was Jack n Jill and that was 2011, and that was the last high profile premiere she attended for one of her movies.

Agree #20 but more importantly is she better get good solid reviews for this one.
The premier will be one night and one day of blog post then forgotten if she doesn’t shine on screen.

Katie has been to many premieres. No matter how one looks at it, the biggest premieres and the most important designer dresses she wore were while she was married to Cruise. Those that followed that relationship saw them in premieres in Spain, Germany, New York, Brazil, etc. So for Katie whether the premiere was for her or Cruise she’s been to a lot of them and can compare which were the best ones. I think that experience can be haunting.

@ #21 – Agree. Movies are forever especially today. The pictures at the premiere add to Google and other libraries but movies are a record of your craft, your reason for being in the entertainment business. Yes, she better shine in The Giver. I think Katie is feeling the pressure.

Ya gotta love Lainey Gossip. She tells it like it is. See quote below.

From Lainey Gossip:

“Like this story that’s making headlines about how she was once considered for Piper, Taylor Schilling’s role, in Orange Is The New Black. According to showrunner Jenji Kohan, she and Katie met about the part. Apparently part of it was scheduling. “She had other things to do” is how Kohan described it.

Um, really? What?

Katie said today on The Today Show that:

“I’m an artist so I’m a risk-taker. I love adventures and new things.”

Celebrities never see themselves as others see them, non?”

@So true:
Lainey also acknowledged her kissing Weinstein’s butt since he is a “King – Maker” but that also depends on if the person they are trying to make happen has the raw materials.
“Katie Holmes dropped a shoulder last night in New York at the Life Is Amazing premiere presented by The Weinstein Company. Her new movie The Giver is also a Weinstein property. And, you’ll recall, a couple of weeks ago she showed up at that surfer party that Harvey was hosting. Harvey is a king-maker. And those are the rules when you’re dealing with him. And the point is that in dealing with him, she’s looking ahead at what benefits she might earn going forward. That is, if she wants to get in the game with peer actors who have far surpassed her. Michelle Williams comes to mind. She worked with him on My Week With Marilyn, for which she received an Oscar nomination.
